MONUMENT, Colo. -- The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office said it’s investigating new activity related to the death of Dylan Redwine.

The 13-year-old boy was visiting his father in the southwest Colorado town of Vallecito when he disappeared. His remains were discovered nearby on Middle Mountain nearly two years ago.

No suspects or persons of interest have been named and the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office refers to it as a murder investigation. The sheriff's office said it would not discuss anything related to the case.

“There are new pieces of information that we know and unfortunately because this is an ongoing investigation I can’t really speak to what they are,” Dylan's mother, Elaine Redwine, said.

Although Dylan’s case has grown cold over the past year, Elaine Redwine recently taped a new, updated episode for the "Dr. Phil Show" that will be shown nationally.

A few months before Dylan’s remains were discovered, Elaine Redwine appeared on the talk show. She and Dylan’s father, Mark Redwine, lashed out at each other over their son’s disappearance.

Elaine blamed Mark and Mark blamed Elaine. Dr. Phil wanted to make it easy on them, so he offered both parents a lie detector test. Elaine passed her test and 20 minutes into his, Mark Redwine said he didn’t feel he could complete it because of a lack of sleep and having consumed a half bottle of Jim Beam the night before.

The latest episode is said to be more revealing.

“There’s  a plea from Dr. Phil to Mark to take the polygraph again. Dr. Phil was going to send [his lie detector test] out to wherever Mark was to take it. And Mark declined,” Elaine Redwine said.

Mark Redwine doesn’t appear on the latest episode in person. He did call into the show.

Mark Redwine declined to discuss the show, saying, “I could say something, but it probably would be inappropriate."

The new episode is expected to air in May.
