Bellevue police retrace area where toddler first reported missing, get new tips

 

Bellevue police Maj. Mike Johnson briefed reporters on Sky Metalwala at the Bellevue Police Department on Sunday (Courtney Blethen Riffkin / The Seattle Times).

At a news conference in Bellevue, Maj. Mike Johnson of the Bellevue Police Department told reporters  that about 20 investigators this morning recanvassed the area around 112th Ave N.E. where toddler Sky Metalwala was first reported missing a week ago.

Police made 20 to 30 new contacts from the canvassing and got 12 new tips they will follow today, Johnson said. He said investigators are frustrated  with the unavailability of the boy’s mother.

“We understand she’s traumatized and devastated by the loss of her son,” he said, adding that he hoped the mother would “gather herself” and meet with investigators soon.

Police weren’t planning any other searches today, he said.
