And what kind of crazy parent leaves her toddler in an unlocked car parked on the side of the street for an hour?

Missing boy's father takes polygraph, results inconclusive | Local & Regional | KATU.com - Portland News, Sports, Traffic Weather and Breaking News - Portland, Oregon

Two-year-old Sky Metalwala was last seen by his mother who left him in her stalled car on a city street as she walked away for an hour to get gas.

The mother, 30-year-old Julia Biryukova, told investigators she left the boy alone Sunday as she and her 4-year-old daughter walked a mile to a gas station, Bellevue police said. When she came back an hour later, the boy was gone, she said.
Unfortunately, mom's story isn't adding up.

It sounds to me like they should be giving her the polygraph test instead of the father.

Now they're saying that nobody but the mom and the four-year-old sister had seen the little boy in the last two weeks. The little girl is saying that the boy was in the car but I wonder if the investigators can just assume that's the case. Kids have very little concept of time and can also be easily manipulated by an adult.

Right. I would leave my child, at night, in an unlocked car. NEVER. Does not pass the "sniff" test to me...

Another story that I read (I'll have to see if I can find it) said the mother claimed she was on her way to the hospital with the little boy because he wasn't feeling well. So......not only do you leave your baby in an unlocked car by the side of the road for an hour, you leave your sick baby alone in an unlocked car by the side of the road for an hour?

I don't think this is going to end well for that little boy (and I really do try to not jump to conclusions normally).

Edited to add:

Biryukova claimed she had been driving to a Bellevue hospital because Sky wasn't feeling well when the car ran out of gas, police said. The hospital wasn't the closest one to her home in nearby Redmond, but she reportedly told detectives she liked the Bellevue hospital better. It wasn't immediately clear what might have been wrong with the boy.

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- The mother of a missing Bellevue boy had not run out of gas on the day the toddler disappeared as she has claimed, police said.

Bellevue Police Maj. Mike Johnson said Julia Biryukova had enough gas in her fuel tank "to travel a considerable distance." Investigators planned to test-drive the vehicle on Thursday to determine whether any mechanical issues would have caused it to stall.

Biryukova had told investigators that her 2-year-old son, Sky Metalwala, vanished Sunday in Bellevue when she left him sleeping alone in her unlocked car for an hour after it ran out of gas. She and her 4-year-old daughter walked to get gas, she claimed, and when they returned an hour later, the boy was gone.

Earlier, Johnson said that Biryukova claimed she was taking the boy to a hospital because he didn't feel well, even though she left her purse, wallet and identification at home. It wasn't clear how she expected to get gas for the car or have her son treated without the items, he said.

I wonder why this story hasn't gotten the national attention that the Baby Lisa case has gotten?

I read that there was no evidence of a gas can at the scene when the police arrived. So sad and strange.

I guess they're going to test the car today for any mechanical problem that might have caused her to think she ran out of gas (probably checking for fuel filter and/or pump problems) since the car had plenty of gas in it.

I hope they find the little boy safe ... he looks just like his dad.

I just have a bad feeling about this one but I hope I am wrong.
