Leads Dwindling In Search For Missing Teen

By  | 

It's been seven weeks since a 13-year-old boy was last seen, and authorities are beginning to run out of leads.

The La Plata County Sheriff's Office is continuing its search for Dylan Redwine, but says the once abundance of tips has slowed to a trickle. Where authorities were previously getting several dozen a day, LPSO says it is now only getting two to three per day at most.

Dylan was visiting his father in Vallecito Lake, which is near Durango, for Thanksgiving when he disappeared. Dylan lived in La Plata County until four months ago, when his mother moved to Colorado Springs.

Dylan's father says that his son was still sleeping when he last saw him on the morning of the 19th. When Mark Redwine returned home a few hours later, back from running errands, Dylan was gone. Authorities were notified later that afternoon.

A reward for information on Dylan's disappearance has risen to $20,000. A dinner to raise money for the continued search is happening later this month.

Anyone with information on Dylan's whereabouts is asked to contact any of the following numbers:

-La Plata County Sheriff’s Office Investigators Dan Patterson (970-382-7015) or Tom Cowing (970-382-7045)
-Tip line 970-382-7511. Tips can be left on an answering machine that will regularly be checked by investigators
-Durango/La Plata Crime Stoppers at 970-247-1112
-Hotline for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST
