The police have seized the passport of Wesley Mathews, who is suspected to have endangered the life of his three-year-old adopted daughter Sherin. The move came after officials found crucial evidence from the car Wesley.
The officials have sent the second child of the couple under Child Protective Services, and Wesley's wife has filed a petition for the release of the kid. Meanwhile, the police are yet to make a breakthrough in the missing child case, Manorama reports.
The three-year-old went missing on October 7 and according to the father the child vanished from outside their house around 3 am in the morning. Wesley admitted that he had put the child outside as punishment for refusing to drink milk at 3 am.
The toddler was adopted from an orphanage in Bihar, and she was in need of special care. Police took Wesley to custody but was released on bond.
The FBI has so far seized nearly 50 items including the cellphones, laptops, a dryer and a washer from Sherin's house.
Though local people held a vigil for the safe return of the girl, the parents are not cooperating with the investigation, says police.
