Vallecito, CO, United States (4E) – Investigators returned Thursday morning to the home of the missing 13-year-old Colorado boy’s father in Vallecito, Colorado for an intensive search since his disappearance last week.
Dan Bender, La Plata County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer, said they are not naming Dylan Redwine’s father, Mark Redwine, a suspect but a thorough search of his residence and surrounding property are needed after a preliminary inspection last week.
Mark told 9NEWS Thursday morning that he was going to spend the day with agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Central Bureau of Investigation.
The father informed investigators he last saw his son at home on November 19 at 7:30 a.m. before he left to run errands. The boy was gone when he returned.
Officials, who said Wednesday they believe Dylan did not a ran away, are now looking into possible scenarios including abduction and murder.
The boy’s mother, Elaine Redwine, told ABC News early this week that she is concerned about her ex-husband’s involvement in Dylan’s disappearance.
On a community vigil last Tuesday, The Durango Herald reported that Mark said in his speech, “Unfortunately, his mother and I don’t see eye to eye, I wish it could be different because at a time like this, we should be together.”
Dylan is described as 5 feet tall and about 105 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a blue and white Duke Blue Devils baseball cap, a black Nike t-shirt, black basketball shorts, black Jordan tennis shoes, and a black backpack.
Anyone with information about Dylan or his whereabouts is urged to call La Plata County Sheriff’s Office investigators at 970-382-7015 or 970-382-7045.
