BELLEVUE, Wash. - Investigators Friday revealed an age-processed image of a young boy who mysteriously vanished out of Bellevue more than five years ago.

Sky Metalwala disappeared on Nov. 6, 2011 when he was 2-years-old. His disappearance became a national story.

His mother, Julia Biryukova, told police that her car ran out of gas while she was driving in Bellevue, so she and her daughter walked to a nearby station, only to find Sky was gone upon their return.

Bellevue Police question whether or not Sky was ever in the car that day, saying their investigation revealed "inaccuracies" in Biryukova's story, including the fact her car was not out of gas and did not have mechanical problems as she had claimed.

Investigators revealed the updated image at a missing Children's safety fair in Tumwater at noon Friday.

If you have any information about this case, you’re asked to call the Bellevue Police Department at 1-425-577-5656 or the National Center for Missing Children at 1-800-843-5678.
