Authorities investigating the death of 13-year-old Dylan Redwine say they have discovered items that are worth testing to determine if they are connected.

The search was conducted Saturday in the Middle Mountain area where Redwine's remains were discovered in June of 2013.

Redwine disappeared during a 2012 Thanksgiving trip to his father's house during a court-ordered visit. La Plata County Sheriff's investigators have identified Redwine's father, Mark, as a person of interest in his death.

Authorities conducted the search Saturday because the area had received heavy rain and authorities believed evidence that might have been covered with debris could have been uncovered, said Sgt. Dan Bender, sheriff's office spokesman.

"We've had a lot of gully washers," Bender said Monday.
