    Sears was great for that. I remember that Sears had an Atari on display that kids could play with. Also, an Intellivision game system (which was better, but never really caught on). Plus, about 9 tv sets set up with Pong. Good times.

    That's what happened to Adam Walsh: he had gone to look at the video game display in Sears to watch some older boys who were playing the display model. The older boys got rowdy and a security guard escorted them out of the store, and Adam too, even though he protested that he wasn't part of the group. Adam then got snatched outside the store.

    I always wondered what happened to that security guard and how he felt later. That started, BTW, a change of the rules in retail stores where now kids can't just be physically removed from a store and left outside alone.

    I didn't know that about Adam Walsh. What a horrible story.

    That security guard was 17 year old Kathryn Shaffer-Barrack.

    i was just thinking about this story and searched for updates, but i didn't really find anything new. i was hoping they would've found him by now.

    the plot thickens, though.

    According to police, Biryukova did walk to the Northtowne Chevron Service on Sunday, but she never bought gas there, police said.
    Instead, she spent time walking around a wealthy neighborhood where she reportedly didn't ask anyone for help, officials said.

    Sky Metalawala: Dad Thinks Boy's Mom, Julia Biryukova, May Be Involved in Disappearance - ABC News
    Terry and Solomon are holding out hope that the boy may be with a friend or family member of Biryukova.
    One of their reasons for this is that other than one neighbor telling police that she saw the boy two weeks before his disappearance, they have found no evidence Sky was in his mother's care since April when her father visited from the Ukraine.
    "Julia did a bit of a shuffle on all of us …," said Terry. "I suspected something, but because we were so wrapped up in the story that Sky just recently disappeared, we were all looking to the left, and we were not looking to the right."
    When Solomon was granted custody of Maile he attempted to obtain her medical records from the year that he did not see his daughter. The doctor had not seen the two children in a year.
    "Armed with this alarming information, just before Christmas, we contacted the children’s health insurance carrier, who told us that there had been no medical claims for payments made for either child in 2011," said Terry. "Now that was the shocker."

    'My husband is a sadistic Muslim Pakistani': Mother of missing Sky Metalwala speaks for first time about boy's disappearance

    By Daily Mail Reporter

    Last updated at 8:32 PM on 21st November 2011




    The mother whose toddler went missing after she left him in an unlocked car when she went to go get gas is now speaking out against the boy's father, calling him a 'sadistic Muslim Pakistani'.

    An ABC journalist who has been corresponding with the mother, Julia Biryukova, by email, said Monday that their recent email conversations have included allegations against her ex-husband Solomon Metalwala, the father of the missing boy named Sky.

    'My former husband is a sadistic Muslim Pakistani. No one has any idea. This is all too difficult,' one email read.
    SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO



    Fighting words: Julia Biryukova said some nasty things about her ex, Sky's father, Solomon Metalwala, and this was the first time she has made a comment




    Against advice: Ms Biryukova continued to comment even though her lawyer advised her against it, hinting that Mr Metalwala is hiding something




    'My attorney has forbid me from talking about the ongoing investigation. My husband's claims are without merit. Solomon is deceptive,' she wrote in another email.

    Given the fact that the comments come through email and not in person, there is some concern that they may be written by a family member that Ms Biryukova is staying with, but it has been confirmed that the address that the emails are coming from is in fact the one she regularly uses.

    Sky Metalwala, 2, went missing on November 6 in the Bellevue area of Washington state, and inconsistencies in Ms Biryukova's story are raising concerns among police officials, though she is has not been officially labelled as a suspect.




    Solution: Ms Biryukova hopes prayer will help her son reappear



    Mr Metalwala has been cooperating with police throughout the investigation. When provided the transcript of the email conversation, he said that it sounded like his ex-wife.

    He also pointed out that he is not Muslim.

    The most recent break in the case came Saturday when investigators said they found some unidentified items of interest in a park near where Sky was left in the car.

    According to ABC affiliate KOMO-TV, police are not sure if the items are related to the case but have sent them in for analysis.



    Missing: Sky with his mother, Julia Biryukova, who says she left him alone in an unlocked car in Bellvue after running out of gas on November 6




    The items were found shortly after police released new photos of the toddler and his mother in effort to acquire more leads in the case.
    Carla Iafrate of the Bellevue Police Department told the station: 'They found something of interest. We called out our CSI investigators, they showed up and looked at the items.
    Ms Biryukova's car had plenty of gas and was running fine, police determined.
    She had told them it stalled as she was driving her son to the hospital because he wasn't feeling well, and that she left him inside as she and the boy's four-year-old sister spent an hour walking to a gas station and calling a friend for help. She told police upon returning to the vehicle, driven by a friend, Sky was missing. The friend called police.







    New photos: Pictures of Sky (left) and his mother Julia Biryukova (right) were released on Saturday with the hope of producing more leads





    New lead: Police hunting for Sky found what they described as 'something of interest' on Saturday during a search at Watershed Park in Kirkland





    In new photos released on Saturday, Ms Biryukova is seen standing alone in a store wearing the same gray sweat suit she wore on the day she said she left Sky in the unlocked vehicle.
    Ms Biryukova and her estranged husband, Solomon Metalwala, were cited in 2009 for leaving Sky sleeping in their sport utility vehicle in a Target parking lot in Redmond for 55 minutes. They came out to get him only after police arrived and asked the store to page the vehicle's owner.
    Mr Metalwala, with whom the mother is in a bitter divorce and custody battle, has said her story is full of holes. He also claimed in divorce documents she had dreamt of strangling the boy.


    Police were also looking into whether Ms Biryukova was a member of an online dating service that connects women with 'sugar daddies'.
    Ms Biryukova has refused to speak with detectives since the day of the disappearance, but she did acknowledge to police she sometimes left her children alone for extended periods.
    Nevertheless, detectives have yet to arrest the 30-year-old Ukrainian immigrant for any crimes they might be able to pin on her, such as making a false police report or recklessly endangering the boy. By giving her some space, they say, they hope to encourage her to cooperate beyond the limited help she's given.


    Innocent: Ms Biryukova and Mr Metalwala were cited in 2009 for leaving Sky sleeping in their SUV in a Target parking lot for 55 minutes




    Prior neglect: Sky's mother has acknowledged having a history of leaving her children home alone for extended periods of time





    Custody battle: Ms Biryukova's estranged husband Solomon Metalwala holding his son Sky





    Investigators have searched Ms Biryukova's apartment and car with her consent, police said. However, her divorce attorney said she has declined to take a polygraph test because they are unreliable and she is too emotionally devastated.
    Sky's father has passed out fliers and voluntarily took polygraph examinations, as did some of his relatives. He warned in a court declaration early this year that his estranged wife's mental health issues were endangering the children. She alleged that he was domineering and abusive.
    In the week before Sky disappeared, his parents reached a tentative agreement after a 12-hour mediation session that would allow Mr Metalwala to have some visitation with the couple's two children.

    Visitation: Sky's parents reached a tentative agreement that would allow the father (pictured) to have some visitation with his two children



    But two days later - and two days before she reported her son missing - Ms Biryukova decided to pull out of the agreement, Mr Metalwala's divorce attorney, D Michael Tomkins, said last week .
    In a letter sent by her attorney, Ms Biryukova insisted that everyone at the mediation session had been against her and the settlement was unfair, Mr Tomkins said.

    She walked a mile to a gas station to call a friend when the car was parked
    in a residential area? She could have gone to any of those houses to use the phone.


    So much in this story doesn't add up.

    So the Kirkland Reporter is saying that the boy could have been sent back to the Ukraine with the grandfather 2 weeks before he went "missing". I really hope that's the case, but a simple search of flight records by the cops could have confirmed or negated that possibility.

    I'm not sure, though. If you fly out of an airport (with tickets purchased in advance) with a child that you identify as yours, I'm pretty sure that you could just invent a name, and that fictitious name would be on the filght records (for the child), but couldn't be cross referenced in any meaningful way to tie it to Sky Metalwala. But if the person who might have taken Sky was a known acquaintance of the mom's, then, I would think they would have flight records to show whether they took a toddler with them, and what the stated name was.

    When we flew domestically with the baby (no ticket, under 2) we had to provide her birth certificate which obviously shws us as parents. They entered her name with my ticket and gave us a boarding pass for her, attached to my seat number and ticket. We're flying internationally this summer and she has to have her own passport as well as something identifying us as her parents.

    My wife usually handles getting the tickets, but I don't think we have ever provided a birth certificate at any point in either the terminal or security checkpoint.

    Our baby had to have a passport when we flew with my son to NZ as a tiny infant. We did not, however, need a birth certificate

    How often do you fly to Europe? Everytime I fly Europe-US (either way) my boarding pass & passport ate checked to see if the names tally. Even flying in Europe (to another European country) the same check takes place.
    They were flying to the Ukraine, so I would've thought that the same procedure (of checking) applied.
