Search for Dylan Redwine Continues
KREX News Room
LA PLATA COUNTY, Colo.- Authorities are still looking for a 13-year-old boy who has been missing for more than a week in southwestern Colorado. They say they do not believe he ran away.
La Plata County sheriff's spokesman Dan Bender said Wednesday that investigators are no longer looking at the possibility that Dylan Redwine ran away while at his father's during a court-appointed visit over Thanksgiving break.
In a statement, Bender also said that investigators still view their operation as a search mission, not a recovery mission; they didn't elaborate.
The boy's mother, Elaine Redwine, has told the media that she thinks her ex-husband, Mark Redwine, may be involved in her son's disappearance.
The Durango Herald reports that Mark Redwine attended a vigil for his son Tuesday night.
There are more than 20 investigators and officers from multiple departments searching for Dylan.
