The La Plata County Sheriff's Office is investigating a number of items found during a search related to the disappearance of Dylan Redwine of Monument.

Over five days, searchers found a "variety of items" along a 12 mile stretch of Middle Mountain Road, according to sheriff's spokesman Dan Bender. Interviews and laboratory testing will determine if anything of the items are pertinent to the ongoing Redwine investigation.

The Sheriff's Office would not comment on the type of items found or their condition, Bender said.

Redwine, 13, went missing from his father's home in the Vallecito area during a visit there in November. His mother and brother live in Monument.

Roughly 45 personnel from law enforcement agencies, representing both regional and national organizations, spent some 1,600 man hours during the search, which concluded Wednesday afternoon, according to Bender. The search, as part of a series of follow-ups conducted in the area following the spring snow melt, included steep drainages and rough terrain where investigators created sectors that they cordoned.

"At times, the searchers were almost shoulder to shoulder as they moved up and down the difficult terrain," Bender said in a news release.

Anyone with information related to Redwine's disappearance is asked to contact the La Plata County Sheriff's Office tip line at 970-382-7511.
