No active search for missing Colorado teen Dylan Redwine planned for Tuesday

Sonar sweeps of Vallecito Lake find no new clues

LA PLATA COUNTY, Colo. - No active searches for missing Colorado teen Dylan Redwine are planned for Tuesday, after sonar sweep of Vallecito Lake found no new clues.

Seven New Mexico State Police scuba divers used three different boats with four different sonar systems to sweep the southern end of Vallecito Lake Monday. That's where cadaver dogs from the La Plata County Search and Rescue Team alerted on a scent both Saturday and Sunday.


But divers didn't find anything, and with no new clues to go on, no further searches are planned Tuesday.

The La Plata County Sheriff's Office said it is investigating possibilities ranging from Dylan running away to a kidnapping.

Dylan was last seen Monday Nov. 19. Now even Dylan's mother is feeling the pressure of trying to maintain hope.

"I think somebody knows where he is. I don't know if somebody's hiding him or if somebody's already done something horrible to him," Elaine Redwine told ABC News.

"The panic is just, you know, Where is he? Is he hurt? Was he able to have turkey at Thanksgiving? You know, just, all the things you want for your children. And the panic sets in because I can't do anything," the mother added.

Elaine Redwine also questions why the boy's father, Mark Redwine, had no clothing to offer search teams and K-9 units.

Other family members have hinted that Mark could be violent.

7News reached out to Mark Redwine he said those comments simply aren’t right.

Hundreds of volunteers and law enforcement officers have been going door-to-door and scouring the rugged hills around the lake, while a helicopter searched from the sky, officials said.

On Monday night, La Plata County Sheriff's Office spokesman Dan Bender said the investigation has not identified any suspects.
