DURANGO, Colo. – Investigators continue to search for missing 13-year-old Dylan Redwine, as tips from the public have dropped relating to the teen’s whereabouts.

The Dylan Redwine Task Force continues to search for Redwine, who went missing on Nov. 19 after a court ordered Thanksgiving visit to his father’s home in Vallecito.

The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office said the number of tips coming in from the public has dropped from several dozen per day to an average of two to three per day. Police say that despite the diminished number of tips, investigators are still assigned to the case and continue to make follow-up contacts.

The reward for information leading to finding Redwine is now approximately $20,000, which includes rewards through Crime Stoppers, the FBI, and donations from private citizens and groups.

Some evidence sent to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation has been processed and returned to La Plata County Sheriff’s Office.

Anyone with information is asked to call La Plata County Sheriff’s Office investigators Dan Patterson at (970) 382-7015 or Tom Cowing (970) 382-7045.
