DALLAS - Richardson police performed a grid search and flew drones over a field and a creek near Richland College Tuesday morning. They were hoping to find any evidence leading them to 3-year-old Sherin Mathews.

Sherin vanished 10 days ago near her Richardson home. Her adoptive father, Wesley Mathews, says she disappeared after he made her stand by a tree at 3 a.m. because she wouldn't drink her milk.

He's been charged with child neglect and was arrested, but released on bond.

An empty field near a college campus will not be the only place cops search.

Police want to hear from anyone with surveillance video from 4 to 5 a.m. on October 7. They're piecing together a timeline of when the family's SUV left the house and where it went.

People other than the police are using Facebook as a way to help locate the missing girl.
