The search for Dylan Redwine will continue Saturday along several miles of ditches on both sides of La Plata County Road 240, according to investigators.

The search has not been sparked by new leads, but investigators want to cover the area ahead of a snow storm that may hit Saturday night or Sunday.

The search will include volunteers who have taken part in other searches for the 13-year-old missing teen as well as La Plata County Search & Rescue with aid from the Durango Police Department.

Dylan went missing from his father's house Nov. 19 where he was spending Thanksgiving. Dylan and his mother, Elaine, and his older brother, Corey, moved to Monument last summer. Dylan's parents are divorced.

“Since this is a search for clues related to possible criminal activity, children and young people should not participate in Saturday’s search efforts,” said Dan Bender, La Plata County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

“Searchers need to be prepared to walk two to four miles over rough terrain, on steep slopes," he said. "They also need to be dressed for weather conditions and carry their own food and water with them.”

Persons taking part in the search should meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Edgemont Ranch picnic area on the south side of the 5300 block of County Road 240, just east of Edgemont Ranch and just west of the intersection with County Road 240 and County Road 234.

The search is expected to last until about 4 p.m. The search area will be divided into two-mile sections.    

Anyone with information about Dylan’s whereabouts is asked to contact La Plata County Sheriff’s Office investigators Dan Patterson at 970-382-7015 or Tom Cowing at 970-382-7045.

There is a local tip line at 970-382-7511 where tips can be left on an answering machine that is regularly checked by investigators. Persons can also call the local Crime Stoppers at 970-247-1112 or the hotline for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678.
