2 Year Old Sky Metalwala Missing Since 11/6/11 in Bellevue, WA … Authorities Say Story Doesn’t Add Up

This missing child’s story not even coming close to passing the Hinky meter.

2 year old Sky Metalwala has been missing since Sunday, November 6, 2011 in Bellevue, WA.  Julia Biryukova, the mother of the missing boy, told police that her car ran out of gas and she left 2 year old Sky Metalwaia sleeping alone in his car seat locked inside the vehicle that was pulled over on the side of the road. Biryukova then told investigators that she and her 4-year-old daughter walked to a gas station. When they returned to the car, the Sky was gone.

Bellevue Police Maj. Mike Johnson said, “Nothing about the story adds up.” Ut-oh, that res flag goes up again, Biryukova, is in the middle of a  a bitter divorce proceeding with the boy’s father.  Julia Biryukova, has also  refused to take polygraph test.

Who on Earth leaves their two year old toddler in a car that has run out of gas and has no heat in November in Washington State? You mean this parent had two children and no cell phone? There were no other cars on the road to hail that would stop and help? One would think you might go to a nearby house for help. Police suspect foul play. Ya think? According to accounts, no one has seen the boy lately.

Clay Terry, one of the attorneys representing Metalwala, was not immediately available for comment. But he told ABC News affiliate KOMO that his client is “exhausted” and hadn’t slept much since his son disappeared.

The father of two has kept out of the spotlight, making one brief, soft-spoken public statement to reporters Monday outside his lawyer’s office, saying, “Please just return him back, like I just said to the police officers, the hospitals and the fire department. Please.”

Police have emphasized they aren’t naming any suspects yet, but they do suspect “foul play.”
