BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Bellevue toddler Sky Metalwala has been missing since November, but his father's attorneys claim he hasn't been seen since May, 2011.

A custody hearing with Sky's mother, Julia Biryukova, and father, Solomon Metalwala, is scheduled for Friday regarding Sky's 5-year-old sister.

Biryukova was the one who reported Sky missing on November 6, after she said her car ran out of gas and she left him in the vehicle to get help.

Biryukova's Flickr account showed pictures of Sky and his sister in summer-like weather, but those photos have since been taken down. However, a Google search reveals cached Flickr data, showing many of the photos were uploaded as late as November, 2011. It also shows when some of the pictures were taken -- and for those pictures, none of them were taken after fall of 2010.

Solomon Metalwala has said he has not seen Sky since December 2010 due to custody disputes.

On November 8, Bellevue Police held a press briefing in which they said a neighbor reported seeing Sky within the previous two weeks.

Biryukova has not been seen in public since Sky's disappearance, but has not been named a suspect in the case.
