Dylan Redwine's mother confronts ex-husband, Mark Redwine, about missing boy, on Dr. Phil talk show

DENVER - "I really have a concern that you hurt him and his bones are out there just laying and you don't even care," the mother of a missing boy said to her ex-husband, the boy's father, on the Dr. Phil show that aired Tuesday.

It's the first time in years that Elaine and Mark Redwine have talked in person. The divorced couple have only traded text messages for three years, according to KRQE-TV.

The Redwine's son, 14-year-old Dylan, was spending a court-ordered Thanksgiving week visit with his father in Vallecito when he vanished on Nov. 19.

"Did you hurt him?" Elaine Redwine pleaded on the show to Mark Redwine.

"No, Elaine, I wouldn't hurt him.  What kind of mother do you, are you to even think I was even capable of doing something like that?" Mark Redwine responded.

Redwine said he left the boy home alone while he went to run errands.

Redwine said when he came home, Dylan was gone.

"Where is your boy?" Dr. Phil asked Mark Redwine.

"I have no idea," Redwine responded. "I wish I knew, but I don't know."

Redwine said he wasn't the last person to see Dylan. He insists his mail carrier spotted Dylan before he vanished.

"On the day Dylan went missing, I saw two boys walking down the road not too far from where Dylan lives it was around 1:30 in the afternoon," the mail carrier told Dr. Phil.

"I do believe Mark took Dylan," the Redwine's other son said. "I don't like you, I hate you. You have been nothing of a father."

"He's the only one not looking for Dylan," Elaine Redwine said. "Because he knows where he is."

"I've done everything that I know how to do to be involved in every aspect of what's going on to find him," said Mark Redwine.

Investigators have told 7NEWS, they continue to follow up tips in the search for Dylan.

Last weekend, searchers with cadaver dogs opened several holes at Vallecito Lake, looking for clues in Dylan's disappearance. After the search, they said they had no new information.

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.
