Not wanting to disturb her son, she left him sleeping in the car seat with the doors “unlocked”. She and her daughter then four, walked a mile to a nearby gas station only to return a hour later to find her son “missing”.
Detectives scoured the area for hours and found nothing, not even a gas can inside the vehicle. Media reports say, Detectives also found the vehicle to have plenty of gas inside the tank and the vehicle was in perfect condition. Then little Sky’s mother decided she no longer wanted to cooperate with Police to find her missing son or say what happened to him invoking her 5th Amendment Right. Many were stunned how a mother could possibly think of leaving their child behind first of all, let alone become uncooperative with Police. Most would be frantic and distraught to learn of their child missing.
Bellevue Police even had the King County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue volunteers out searching for him with Search Dogs, on foot and by vehicle. It was a cold day when searchers just like you and me, spent a long day into evening searching for little Sky. They would do this any day, giving up their time and other commitments to find a missing little boy. However, it was would be a disappointment to searchers and Police when Sky was not located.
Police say they have received 2500 tips in the three years they have been working on locating Sky but they are now asking for the Public’s continued assistance.
Here’s what Sky would like at Age 5 [his current Age].

Sky Metawala is described as a male with black hair and brown eyes. Approximately 28 pounds 2’10” with a DOB of September 2,2009, and would have turned 5 this year.
Please help his Family find him soon and reunite them once again.
The status of the case is considered active and under investigation jointly by the Bellevue and Redmond Police Departments but they need the Public’s assistance with tips or if anyone saw anything on that day.
There is currently no word on if his mother is under investigation or if she is being uncooperative with Detectives.
