LACEY, Wash. - Each passing day makes Solomon Metalwala more anxious.
“It’s a very sad thing," said Metalwala.
Metalwala's two-year-old son, Sky, was reported missing on November 6. Members of the group Search and Seek have paid close attention to news story about the toddler's disappearance.

“He was in his car seat. His mom ran out of gas. She left him in the car, and went to go get gas. She came back. He was gone,” said Sharon Mitchell, a Search and Seek volunteer.

"I don’t think the story adds up. There are definitely a lot of loopholes in it," said Jennifer Mau, the coordinator for Search and Seek. "We are here to find that one loophole and get him home.”

From Oregon to the Canadian border, Search and Seek volunteers plan to spend the next two days passing out flyers with information about Sky along the I-5 corridor.

"The holiday travel season is definitely a big reason for this," said volunteer Amy Walcott, who started passing out flyers Tuesday night.

At this time, when many people are focused on traveling to family, volunteers just want to bring one back together.

“If it was my kid out here I would want every single person out looking for her, so that’s why we do it," said Mau.

"Everybody just opened their hearts," said Metalwala. He added he's hopeful this holiday effort will help find Sky.
