Investigators say they've determined Dylan Redwine didn't run away

DURANGO, Colo. - Investigators in the Dylan Redwine disappearance said Wednesday they have determined the 13-year-old did not run away.

"Just given the length of time (he's been gone), we're looking at other possibilities," said Durango Police Lt. Ray Shupe. "Everything from abduction to homicide."

The Dylan Redwine Task Force is continuing their door-to-door canvasing of the Vallecito Lake area near Durango.

Dylan went missing from his father's Vallecito home during a court-ordered visit on Nov. 19.

The Task Force is comprised of members from the La Plata County Sheriff's Office, the Durango Police Department, the FBI and CBI.  

Three La Plata County Search and Rescue air-scent canines have returned to the Vallecito area to do ground searches.

Articles with Dylan's scent on them have been brought from the Springs by Dylan's mother.

"Investigators are no longer looking at the possibility of Dylan being a run-away, but we still view this as a search and not a recovery effort," said Dan Bender, Public Information Officer for the La Plata County Sheriff's Office. 

The Task Force is asking the general public if they have any recreational video footage that includes vehicles traveling on main routes between Durango and Vallecito Lake, taken between 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 18 through noon on Monday November 19, to call dispatch at (970) 385-2900 to make an arrangements to get a copy of the footage to the Task Force. 

A tip line has been set up specifically for the search for Dylan Redwine at 970-382-7511. 

The Durango La Plata Crime Stoppers also has a cash reward for information leading to Dylan.  Crime Stoppers can be reached at 970-247-1112.  

Citizens may also call the hotline for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE LOST (1-800-843-5678).
