LA PLATA COUNTY, Colo. -- Teams searching for clues about what happened to Dylan Redwine found “items of interest” during a new search, officials said Monday.
The 13-year-old boy disappeared from his father’s home in Vallecito, about 40 minutes east of Durango, in November 2012. Some of Redwine’s remains were discovered on Middle Mountain in the summer of 2013.
In the years since, investigators have combed through Middle Mountain each summer hoping to find new information in the boy’s death.
On Monday, the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office, along with at least 16 other groups, concluded a five-day search on the upper reaches of Middle Mountain.
“A total of 69 people took part in this search,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement. "Most of the people who searched came at their own expense, with several traveling hundreds of miles.”
Investigators called the latest search a success.
“Items of interest were recovered,” the sheriff’s office said. "They will be tested and added to other evidence collected during the 3 1/2 year investigation.”
An examination of the search results will help determine the next steps investigators will take to move the case forward.
Middle Mountain is located near Vallecito, not far from the home of Dylan’s father, Mark Redwine. Mark Redwine has been named a person of interest in the case.
No arrests have been made.
