Sky Metalwala on NG

Kingsgate Park and Ride is the new location the police resumed their search for Sky Metalwala on Saturday, although they aren't revealing why... In the meantime, his Ukrainian grandparent's on his mom's side of the family have said they believe Solomon has something to do with his disappearance. The Kingsgate Park and Ride is near Solomon's residence.

John Walsh, host of America's Most Wanted has a few words regarding the case of the missing two-year-old Washington state boy, Sky Metalwala, and you'll get to hear them Friday night on the show famous for bringing to justice 1057 criminals, according to their website.

Walsh asked, "Who walks to a gas station to get gas and leaves your 2-year-old alone in the car?" He continues, "The real key to this case ... is the mom."

Suspicious, messy and filled with more questions than answers, the case of Sky Metalwala continues to stump investigators in the Bellevue, Washington area where his mother, Julia Biryukova, says on the morning of Nov. 6, she was taking Sky to the hospital because he was ill.

While on the way, the car supposedly ran out of gas and Julia pulled off to the side of the highway, but she left Sky in the rear child car seat, strapped in, and walked with her four-year-old daughter to a gas station a mile away--returning an hour later.

The major issue with her story--after a road test and inspections authorities completely ruled car troubles of any kind, saying it runs just fine and had plenty of gas.

With the Lisa Irwin case getting lots of national attention and Sky's case mostly local, authorities are hoping tonight will change all that.

Another curious issue is the appearance of his mother. Recognition of her could be nearly impossible after police released a surveillance shot that makes her look so opposite of the other picture--she looks like two different people.

From the long straight blonde almost "Barbie" like image released from Facebook to darker hair in a bun captured on survellance video that makes her appear older and somewhat like a "plain Jane."

Sky's parents are involved in a divorce and child custody dispute which is some of the focus of the investigation as the mud-slinging comments on court documents has given authorities somewhere to learn more about Julia since she refuses to talk to police except through her attorney.

If that's not all, then there's the talk of her possibly copying a scene from the TV show "Law and Order" that aired the night before where a mom said her child was taken from her vehicle.

Solomon is trying to get custody of their 4-year-old daughter who was placed in state care after her brother went missing.

Sky's father, Solomon Metalwala continues to say he believes his son is alive. Several community members, with Solomon and police, have launched numerous searches and passed out flyers, but still no viable leads.

Investigators are hoping America's Most Wanted will stir up people's memory and educate those unaware of the incident in an effort to obtain more leads or solve the case all together.

Description is as follows:

Sky Metalwala was last seen with a dark buzz style cut, green hoodie sweatshirt, Carters blue and gray striped pants, and his eyes are brown. He is half-Indian and half-Caucasian.
