SEATTLE (AP) -- A police spokesman says a missing 2-year-old boy
could be dead as the search in Washington state for Sky Metalwala
(metal-WALLA) stretches into its sixth day.
The boy's mother says he disappeared Sunday when she ran out of
gas then left him in the car when she went for aid. On Friday
Bellevue police said the vehicle ran just fine when they tested it.
Maj. Mike Johnson said investigators have ruled nothing out.
However he added there's a real possibility that Sky is no longer
alive, considering how long it has been since he was first reported
Johnson said police continue to be frustrated by the lack of
cooperation from the boy's mother, but said there's not enough
evidence to name Julia Biryukova (BEER-you-kovah) as a suspect.
