Searchers for missing 2-year-old boy Sky Metalwala plan to meet in Issaquah on Wednesday afternoon to hand out fliers as investigators and volunteers continue to search for the missing toddler.
Sky’s father, Solomon Metalwala, and volunteers organized the event. Searchers plan to meet at Costco at noon.
Meanwhile, investigators continue to search for the missing toddler.
Sky’s mother, Julia Biryukova, reported the boy missing Nov. 6, after she said she left him in her car as she and a 4-year-old daughter walked to a gas station. She said Sky had disappeared by the time they returned.
Bellevue police received more than 1,100 tips in the days since Biryukova reported Sky missing. Still, the agency has not ruled out any possibilities in the case.
“We’re not releasing information about any of the searches that we’re doing in any areas,” Bellevue Police Department spokeswoman Officer Carla Iafrate said Wednesday. “There’s just no new releasable information today.”
