DURANGO, Colo. -- Investigators said Wednesday they have identified a person of interest in the homicide investigation of Dylan Redwine.

Redwine, then 13, disappeared from his father’s home in the La Plata County town of Vallecito in November 2012. Some of his remains were discovered in the summer of 2013.

Investigators have not named the person of interest in the case.

The La Plata County Sheriff's Office said it identified the person of interest after it went back and searched a remote area near where some of Dylan's remains were found. The sheriff's office said several "items of interest" were found and investigators have more searches to conduct.

Investigators also have enlisted the help of a former FBI profiler and it turns out Pete Klismet might have scored the biggest break yet.

“We’ve gone from really not knowing who might be a person of interest in the case to the point where we are saying yes, we feel very confident in having one," Klismet told KRDO.

Dylan disappeared around Thanksgiving 2012 while spending a court-ordered visit with his father. Dylan's mother Elaine Redwine has gone on national TV accusing Mark Redwine of being involved in her son's death.

Elaine Redwin filed a wrongful death lawsuit in the case against her husband in Durango. Mark Redwine has denied any involvement in Dylan's death.
