Missing Wash. boy's dad: Story doesn't add upFather of missing Wash. boy: Mom's story of leaving him in unlocked car doesn't add up
BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) ' The father of a missing Washington state boy says his estranged wife's story about the case doesn't add up.
Police say Julia Biryukova (beer-yoo-KOH'-vah) reported that she left her 2-year-old son in her unlocked car after it ran out of gas Sunday morning in Bellevue, east of Seattle.
She told police that she and her 4-year-old daughter walked to a gas station a mile away. Biryukova reported that when she got back to the car an hour later, her son was gone.
The boy's father, Solomon Metalwala, told reporters Monday he doesn't understand why Biryukova would have left the boy, or why she wouldn't have walked to a nearby restaurant instead.
A lawyer for Biryukova, Veronica Freitas, didn't immediately return a call seeking comment
Biryukova and Metalwala have been going through a bitter divorce and custody dispute.
