BAYFIELD, Colo. — A year after the 13-year-old disappeared, capturing the attention of the entire state, the family and friends of Dylan Redwine will hold a memorial for the teen, whose partial remains were found in June.

No arrests have been made in the case, and Redwine’s remains are yet to be returned to the family, according to KRQE, but the family is going forward with the memorial anyway in an effort to “move forward and heal.”

The memorial service will be held on Saturday at 10 a.m., at the Pine Valley Foursquare Church in Bayfield, the site of Redwine’s grave. A candlelight vigil will follow at 6:30 p.m., and will be held at Limbach Park in Monument.

Redwine went missing in November 2012, during a court-ordered visit with his father near Vallecito. The teen had been spending the majority of his time with his mother, Elaine Redwine, and brother in the Colorado Springs area.

Approximately seven months after he was reported missing, Dylan’s partial remains were discovered north of Vallecito Lake, which is eight miles from his father’s home. The La Plata County County Office of the Medical Investigator is yet to determine a cause of death, and has remained in possession of those remains since the discovery.

Theories about Dylan’s disappearance and death have been widespread. Those theories have even been voiced during a national T.V. appearance on the “Dr. Phil” snow, in which Elaine accused Mark of playing a role in their son’s disappearance.

Mark offered several theories of his own during several home videos. Neither he, nor anyone else, has been named as a suspect in Dylan’s disappearance or death.
