Representatives from the Bellevue Police Department have revealed a new age-progressed image of Sky Metalwala, who has been missing since November 2011. The image shows what Sky would look like today as a seven year-old boy, and was revealed at a missing children’s safety fair in Tumwater.

Bellevue Chief of Police Steve Mylett was present at the event, as was Sky Metalwala’s father Solomon.

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.

Sky’s father, Solomon Metalwala, has been an active supporter of the effort to locate Sky. 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.

If anyone has any information regarding this case, they are urged to contact the Bellevue Police Department by contacting Investigations Captain John McCracken at 425-452-7658 or E-mail JMccracken@bellevuewa.gov.
