LA PLATA COUNTY, Colo. - A five-agency task force is still following up on tips in the case of a Colorado teenager who disappeared more than five weeks ago.
Dylan Redwine, 13, of Colorado Springs, was reported missing Nov. 19 after a court ordered visit with his Dad in the Durango area.
The boy's father, Mark Redwine, said he left his son at his home while he ran errands. Mark said when he returned, Dylan was gone.
La Plata County Sheriff's spokesman Dan Bender told 7NEWS the task force is still formed and investigators are still following up on calls and tips from the public as they come in.
"In the past couple weeks, we conducted spot searches using a helicopter related to one tip and a bloodhound in another," Bender said.
However, Bender said neither tip led to anything new in the case.
The task force consists of members of the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office, FBI, CBI, Durango Police Department and Bayfield Marshall’s Office.
La Plata County Sheriff's Lt. Ed Phippin, who is leading the task force, has collected a folder of tips that is about 2-inches thick.
Authorities have said they don't believe the boy ran away and have called his disappearance a criminal investigation.
