Dylan Redwine search: Teams with cadaver dogs drill holes in Vallecito Lake looking for missing teen

DURANGO, Colo. - Searchers with cadaver dogs drilled holes in the ice on a Vallecito Lake over the weekend in the ongoing search for Dylan Redwine.

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

"Sadie, Sabor and Jetta came out today to help us see if they could scent in the same areas that the cadaver dogs hit on early in the case," said a posting on the Find Missing Dylan Redwine Facebook page Sunday.

The searchers said they opened five holes in the same area that the earlier search and rescue cadaver dogs had hit on a few days after Redwine went missing.

The searchers also opened another hole near the flow channel.

Each hole was checked multiple times, the family said.

"We want Dylan home," the Facebook page explained. "But at the same time we are also looking for resolution and closure. The only way to obtain any one of those things is to check and double check everything, to try to rule out all possibilities."

The Facebook page said, despite the new search, there was no new information.

Within weeks of Dylan's disappearance, 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.

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.
