Dylan Redwine case: Searchers spent weekend looking for missing teen

Redwine disappeared Nov. 19

DURANGO, Colo. - A large search for missing teenager Dylan Redwine failed to find any clues over the weekend.

The search near Vallecito Reservoir involved authorites and professional search teams, according to the Find Missing Dylan Redwine Facebook page.

Redwine, 14, was spending a court-ordered Thanksgiving week visit with his father in Vallecito, near Durango,  when he vanished on Nov. 19.

His father said he went to run errands the next day and when he came home, Dylan was gone.

Weeks after Dylan disappeared, investigators said they determined the teen did not run away, but members of the task force searching for Dylan will not disclose what led them to that conclusion. Investigators would only say they are treating his disappearance as a criminal investigation.

Saturday and Sunday, the searchers covered miles of rough terrain, according to Facebook.

"Don't give up on us buddy ~ we are looking!," family friend Denise Hess posted to Dylan on Facebook.

Earlier this month, Hess asked backcountry hikers around Vallecito Reservoir to keep an eye out for any signs of Redwine, especially any pieces of clothing or anything that appears out of the ordinary.

The reward for information leading to finding Dylan is well over $50,000. That includes rewards through Crime Stoppers, the FBI and donations from private citizens and groups.

Anyone who may have information on Dylan's whereabouts 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.
