FBI joins search for missing 2-year-old in Bellevue

The FBI has joined in on the search for a 2-year-old boy who went missing after his mother left him in a parked car near the 2600 block of 112th Avenue Northeast in Bellevue.

FBI agents and the King County Sheriff’s Office are assisting in the search for Sky Metalwala. The search for Sky began Sunday morning, after Bellevue police received a call from a woman who said she had run out of gas and left the child buckled into a car seat while she and her 4-year-old walked about a mile to a Chevron gas station.

There, police said, the mother called a friend. The mother told police that when she returned to the vehicle, the child was no longer there. The mother told police the car was not locked.

Police did not find a gas can at the car, Bellevue police said.

Sky has brown eyes and dark buzz-cut hair and was wearing a dark-green hooded sweatshirt and blue and gray striped pants.
