Investigators searching house of Dylan Redwine’s father
SHAUN STANLEY/Durango Herald
The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant Thursday morning at the home of Mark Redwine, the father of 13-year-old Dylan Redwine who disappeared Nov. 19. while visiting his father on Thanksgiving break.
“We are not calling Mark Redwine a suspect,” Sheriff’s spokesman Dan Bender said. “It was only prudent to search because this was the last place Dylan was seen.”
Colorado Bureau of Investigations and the FBI had tents and a trailer set up outside the house. Investigators wearing white scrub-like uniforms made trips in and out of the house and a travel trailer this morning.
Dylan texted his mother, Elaine Redwine, when he arrived at Durango-La Plata County Airport on Nov. 18. The lad immediately contacted friends in Bayfield where he attended school until this summer when his mother, who divorced Mark Redwine in 2007, moved to Colorado Springs.
Dylan agreed to meet his friends early Nov. 19 but the meeting never took place. Mark Redwine told investigators that he left on errands at 7:30 a.m. but found Dylan gone when he returned four hours later.
“The investigation of Dylan’s disappearance is ongoing,” Bender said. “We won’t be revealing any list of what we find until the it’s over.”
About 15 investigators and analysts are involved in the search, Bender said.
