COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Nearly two months after vanishing without a trace, the family of missing teenager Dylan Redwine hopes a new billboard in Colorado Springs could help lead to new tips.

The billboard, which is displayed off of I-25 and Fillmore Street, lists the teen’s age and description in an effort to help investigators locate the 13-year-old.

Redwine, who investigators don’t believe ran away, has not been seen or heard from since November 19 while visiting his father near Durango.

The Center for Missing and Exploited Children as well as the La Plata County Sheriffs Office continues to distribute the teen’s information in an effort to generate new leads.

On Thursday January 17,  friends and family of Dylan Redwine will host a fundraising dinner at Lewis Palmer High School in Monument. The event, which will also include a silent auction, is meant to raise awareness and funds for the search.

Lewis Palmer H.S. is at 1300 Higby Rd. in Monument. The event goes from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
