Candlelight vigil for Dylan Redwine: More than 100 gather to remember teen found dead

BAYFIELD, Colo. - More than 100 people came together Saturday night to hold a candlelight vigil for Colorado teen Dylan Redwine, according to the Durango Herald.

Family members, friends and neighbors gathered at Eagle Park in Bayfield at 8:30 p.m., to light candles and share stories about Dylan's life.

Dylan’s older brother, Cory, said he had so many memories of him he didn’t know how he could focus on one, the Herald reported.

“He was an ... amazing person,” Cory was quoted as saying.

Dylan was reported missing from his father’s home in Vallecito Nov. 19, 2012, during a court-ordered visit. Many of the mourners in the park Saturday night had helped search for the missing teen, the Herald reported.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation confirmed bones found last week on Middle Mountain belonged to Dylan.  That's about 10 miles from where Dylan was last seen.

Dylan's father, Mark Redwine, told the Herald he met with investigators Saturday before the vigil and went with them to the area where they found some of Dylan’s remains.

“It was horrific. It was unimaginable,” Redwine told the Herald.

“It’s not over," family friend Kami Jolly said. "The next step is justice for Dylan.”

Anyone who may have information on Dylan's disappearance is asked to contact La Plata County Sheriff’s Office Investigators Dan Patterson 970-382-7015 or Tom Cowing 970-382-7045. There is a local tip line, 970-382-7511, where tips can be left on an answering machine that is regularly checked by Investigators.
