Seven years ago on this date, a toddler vanished without a trace, and Bellevue Police continue to ask for the child’s mother’s cooperation in bringing the case to a close.

On November 6th, 2011, 2-year-old Sky Metalwala was reported missing in Bellevue by his mother, Julia Biryukova.  Julia reported that she left Sky in her vehicle after it ran out of gas in Bellevue.  A police investigation revealed inaccuracies in Julia’s statement, including the fact that her car was not out of gas and had no mechanical problems.  Julia spoke with investigators on the day she reported Sky missing, however has since refused to participate in the police investigation. To date, investigators with the FBI, Bellevue Police Department, and Redmond Police Department have pursued over 2,500 tips, spent over 14,000 hours, and over 2 million dollars in this lengthy investigation, however Sky remains missing.
