Police investigating the disappearance of two-year-old Sky Metalwala were in contact last week with the operator of a dating website where Sky's mother, Julia Biryukova -- or someone using her name and likeness -- created a profile in July.

The owner of the site, Brandon Wade, said police contacted him on Nov. 10 asking for any information he could provide on it. Wade's staff turned over to police a list of login information and messages to and from the account. 

Wade said the page was created by someone using a Washington state Internet account, but the person created a free profile requiring no payment or proof of identity, so the exact identify of the profile's creator is unknown.

The website -- seekingarrangement.com -- bills itself as offering "a secure place for like-minded Sugar Daddies, Mommies and Sugar Babies to meet each other." Wade said Biryukova, if it was her who created the account, “signed up to be a sugar baby, which means she’s looking for someone wealthy to take care of her.”

On the page, which was created July 25, a person identifying herself as "JB" says she is "looking for financial stability and assistance. I am looking for a successful mentor. I am looking for a REAL man. YOU tell me YOUR 'ideal' arrangement!"  The profile says "JB" expects "US$3,001 - $5,000 monthly."

The profile page features nine photographs of Biryukova and describes her as 30-years-old, a "non-smoker" and "non-drinker" who can "speak fluent Russian, Ukrainian and English" and lives in Redmond.

The last time Biryukova, or the person behind the account, accessed the account was October 26, Wade said.

Biryukova is a native of Ukraine. She moved to the United States as a child and has spent most of her life in Bellevue and the Eastside.

Monday marked eight days since Biryukova's son, Sky Metalwala disappeared. During that time, Biryukova has not agreed to a police interview or a polygraph test. Bellevue Police said there is no evidence to charge to anyone with a crime yet, but that the case could turn into a criminal investigation in the future.
