The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office is confirming the remains of Dylan Redwine were found in a recent search conducted in Southwestern Colorado. A five-day search of Middle Mountain Road near Vallecito Lake turned up a number of items, including bones. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation determined those remains as belonging to Redwine. The 13-year old boy disappeared in mid-November while on a court-ordered Thanksgiving holiday visit with his father. The Sheriff’s Office says Redwine was picked up by his father at the Durango-La Plata County airport. The following day, Dylan’s mother reported him missing.
Officials say the recent searches were conducted as follow-up searches, and not as a result of any new information.
