California Man in the Dock, Accused of Disappearance of 6-month-old Daughter

In a rather suspicious case, a father who had reported his daughter’s disappearance, is himself being considered the person of interest in her disappearance. This is because of the contradictory evidence advanced by him to investigation authorities.

Matthew Graham, 23, father of the lost California child, reported his daughter’s disappearance from his Happy Valley home on July 2 during the early-morning hours. He told authorities that the baby was last seen in her crib. However, the investigation authorities alleged that Matthew himself skipped a meeting with his probation officer and stole a semi-automatic pistol from his mother.

Matthew gave inconsistent information to investigators, which made them name him the ‘person of interest’ in the case. He was earlier jailed, but was released this week after pleading guilty. A judge even ruled that he would not have to wear a monitoring bracelet after the case was closed. This was probably the fault the court made. Tom Bosenko, Shasta County Sheriff, reiterated this when he said, “The court made a bad decision in ordering Graham's GPS to be removed and now the public is in danger”.

Bosenko even had deputies interact with the disappeared baby’s mother and Graham’s mother about the baby’s dummy that was found in Ono, an unincorporated community in Shasta County, on Friday. This pacifier resembled the lost baby girl and would be subjected to DNA testing, said the Sheriff.

Meanwhile, a search was continuing in the Ono area for the infant, as also for Graham. Bosenko called Graham a felon in possession of a gun and held him guilty of violating his probation.
