Although it has been exactly one year since Sky Metalwala, then age 2, disappeared, Bellevue police are still active in the investigation.

Police say that while it was hard for family members to cope with the disappearance, new information may still come to light even after a year or more.

Metalwala was reported missing by his mother on Nov. 6, 2011 in Bellevue after she reportedly ran out of gas. She left Sky in the vehicle while walking to find gas but when she returned he was missing. An intensive search took place, but the little boy was not located.

Metalwala's father is a Kirkland resident.
