BELLEVUE, Wash. (AP) -- It will be six months on Sunday since 2-year-old Sky Metalwala (meht-uhl-WAL'-uh) was reported missing in Bellevue.

His father is still hoping someone will come forward with a tip that could bring him home.

The mother, Julia Biryukova (BEER'-yoo-koh-vuh), has refused to talk with police since she reported her son disappeared Nov. 6, after she left him alone in a car to walk for gas.

Police say there was nothing wrong with the car. Searches failed to find any sign of the boy.

KING-TV reports (http://is.gd/oBa8V6) Solomon Metalwala is planning a prayer service Sunday night at Heritage Park in Kirkland to keep Sky in peoples' minds.

The parents have divorced and Solomon Metalwala has custody of Sky's sister.
