(CBS/KIRO/AP) SEATTLE, Wash. - Detectives are gathering information from an internet dating profile that may have been created by the mother of missing Washington toddler Sky Metalwala and says she was seeking a "sugar daddy."

Police contacted Brandon Wade, owner of the website seekingarrangement.com, last week asking for information about Julia Biryukova, reports CBS affiliate KIRO. The site, which connects men and women interested in a paid arrangement, says it's "The elite sugar daddy dating site for those seeking mutually beneficial relationships."

The profile was created by someone identifying herself as "JB" who describes herself as a "happy, single, loving Christian and mommy of two beautiful babies," KIRO reports. The free profile required no proof of identity.

The profile says "JB" expects "US$3,001 - $5,000 monthly."

Wade said he can't say for sure if the account was created by Biryukova, but said it was created using an Internet account in Washington. Wade told KIRO the account was created in late July and remained active until Oct. 26.

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 JB accessed the account was October 26, Wade said.

Biryukova, 30, is a native of Ukraine. She moved to the United States as a child and has an apartment in Redmond. She and her husband Solomon Metalwala are involved in a divorce and child custody dispute.

Julia Biryukova told police her 2-year-old son, Sky Metalwala, vanished on Nov. 6 in Bellevue when she left him sleeping alone in her unlocked car after it ran out of gas. She said she and her 4-year-old daughter went to get gas and when they returned an hour later, the boy was gone.

Police said the car started and ran fine when they took it for a test drive. Investigators said they have been frustrated that Biryukova has not answered questions about discrepancies in her story. She has not agreed to a polygraph test, saying through her lawyer that she is too distraught to answer questions.

Police say they have received 900 tips about the missing boy and have hundreds of investigators working to find him, Fox News reports. Police have reportedly said they suspect foul play in the toddler's disappearance.
