La Plata County Sheriff’s investigators, in cooperation with the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, continued their efforts Friday to locate 13-year-old Dylan Redwine.

The boy was reported missing Monday afternoon by his father, Mark Redwine.

Dylan was staying at his father’s house in Vallecito, about 22 miles northeast of Durango since Sunday as part of a court ordered Thanksgiving holiday visitation.

Dylan and his mother Eliane and brother Cory moved to Colorado Springs last summer.

Volunteers have been making door-to-door contacts to spread the word about Dylan, and searching areas near where he was last seen.

Five investigators from La Plata Sheriff’s Office are assigned to the case. Deputies and officers from other law enforcement agencies respond to any report of a young person resembling Dylan.

On Friday, the sheriff's office released new details about what clothes Redwine may have been wearing when he disappeared.

The La Plata County Sheriff says he may have been wearing a blue and white Duke Blue Devils baseball cap, a black Nike t-shirt, black basketball shorts and black Jordan shoes.

“We have not ruled out any possibility” said Dan Bender, Public Information Officer for La Plata Sheriff’s Office.

“This is the 5th day Dylan has been missing with few clues to work from. We have to consider everything from foul play to a runaway. We hope the broadened exposure to the public through the news media, the work of our investigators, and the national reach offered by the FBI and National Center For Missing and Exploited Children will result in a positive conclusion with Dylan reunited with his family,” Bender said.
