While baby Sky Metalwala remains missing from the Bellevue, WA area there are some new developments pertaining to his story. However, these updates are regarding his father, Solomon Metalwala.
Sources say that a group of activists believe that Solomon Metalwala is the victim of "family courts bias." This is regarding how touchy domestic violence accusations can be. During his rocky divorce from the mother of Sky Metalwala, Julie Biryukova, he was accused of domestic violence by the woman. Because of all of this, Solomon couldn't get custody immediately of his children. Since then, it's been pretty much established that this child disappeared under Julie's care, and not under the care of his father.
So could the court's bias of sending the children immediately with their "mother" be what led to the child's disappearance? You see, had Solomon Metalwala been granted custody in the first place, his children would still be here and with him. Now, he only has his 4-year-old daughter, Maile, who was malnourished and underweight when she left her mother's custody after her 2-year-old brother's mysterious disappearance.
It would be interesting to see what comes of these claims made by activists. But it would also be interesting to see if Julie Biryukova ever surfaces to speak to the public. It's been several months now since Sky vanished and she hasn't spoken a word to the media. Hopefully she is under intense watch by detectives.
