DURANGO – Officials and volunteers continue their search for missing 13-year-old Dylan Redwine Saturday.
Investigators said they will search several miles of ditches on both sides of La Plata County Road 240, a common route between Durango and Vallecito, for any possible clues related to Redwine’s disappearance.
Dan Bender, a spokesperson with the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office said over 260 volunteers signed up to take part in the search as of 9 a.m. Saturday. Officials from more than 12 agencies are helping search for the missing teen.
Authorities said the new search is not prompted by any new leads in the case, but the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office said they want to cover the region before a snowstorm is expected to pass through the area Saturday night.
Redwine was first reported missing on Nov. 19, after a court ordered Thanksgiving visit to his father’s home in Vallecito. Redwine’s father told investigators his son was at his house on County Road 500 when he left to do some errands at about 7:30 a.m. Monday. His father said he was gone when he returned to the house at about 11:30 a.m. Redwine’s father reported his son missing after he was unable to find him during the afternoon.
Based on video footage from the Durango-La Plata County Airport of Dylan arriving in Durango on Sunday, November 18, and a visit on Sunday to the Durango Walmart, investigators determined that Dylan was wearing the following:
- A blue baseball cap with a white front panel with the words “Duke Blue Devils” in blue on the white panel;
- A black, short-sleeved T-shirt with the large letters “DC” (possibly in grey) on the front within a thin light-colored square border around the DC logo;
- A pair of black basketball shorts that went below the knee with light-colored (possibly light blue and white) stripes on the sides; and
- Black-colored “Jordan” shoes with a white tongue and white shoelace area.
Citizens who have information that may aid in the search for Dylan are asked to leave a voicemail message on the Dylan Redwine Tip Line at 970-382-7511.AlertMe
