Investigators interview father of missing boy
The F.B.I and C.B.I. executed a search warrant on the home of Mark Redwine, the father of 13-year-old Dylan Redwine, who has been missing near Vallecito Reservoir for nearly two weeks.
According to La Plata County Sheriff's Office, authorities concluded their search of the home around 9:00 p.m. Thursday.
Officials said that Redwine is cooperating with the investigation and he volunteered to give an official interview to the task force Thursday afternoon.
Lt. Ray Shupe with the task force said, "This is an ongoing investigation and we are not releasing any information about the official interview of Mr. Redwine or what was, or was not taken from Mr. Redwine's residence."
Authorities have ruled out the possibility that Dylan is a runaway due to the length of time he's been missing, lack of cell phone activity, and the fact that he hasn't contacted any family or friends.
They also believe there's no chance Dylan wandered off and became lost in the wild.
"Task force members are looking at this investigation as a criminal investigation," said Lt. Shupe. "We are still looking at all other possibilities."
According to La Plata County sheriff's officials, Dylan's parents have brought in friends and family from out-of-state for moral support and to assist with the continued search efforts for their son.
Door-to-door canvassing by task force members began on Tuesday, November 27 but has been concluded at this time.
Lt. Shupe said they would like to thank the community for sharing video footage of the Vallecito area, taken between the evening of Sunday, November 18 and noon on Monday, November 19.
"Footage is currently being analyzed by investigators for clues," said Lt. Shupe.
The task force is still requesting video footage or photographs that include vehicles traveling on any routes between Durango and Vallecito Reservoir during that time frame.
