BELLEVUE, Wash. - Bellevue police said Tuesday they suspect foul play in the disappearance of 2-year-old Bellevue boy Sky Metalwala. "Given the limited amount of information we have, the fact that there's really no solid leads to follow up on in regard to where he might be. Absolutely, we suspect foul play," said Major Mike Johnson of the Bellevue Police Department. "Someone close to this family knows what happened to this child," he added. A press conference with the Bellevue Police Department has been scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Johnson said police have not received any new clues in the past 24 hours.

They were going to schedule a second polygraph with the missing boy's father, Solomon Metalwala. The boy's mother, Julie Biryukova, has declined to take a polygraph test. Solomon Metalwala's attorney said the church is organizing a private search party. Sky Metalwala hasn't been seen since Sunday morning.
The toddler's mother said he disappeared when she left him in an unlocked car after she ran out of gas on a Bellevue road. "We don't even know if he was in the car," Johnson said. He said it was "highly unlikely, but possible" the boy could have gotten out of the car by himself, but the information "just doesn't add up."
Police have not named Biryukova as a suspect, but investigators did search the Redmond apartment where Biryukova lives with Sky and her 4-year-old daughter, including the building's dumpsters, and were expanding the radius of the search at the residence.
