An East Mountain group is reaching out to a Colorado family who has been searching for a missing teen since Thanksgiving.

Dylan Redwine disappeared while he was visiting his dad near Durango.
     
More than two months have gone by with few new clues.

Wendy Kessinger and her organization K-9 Forensics are offering to help the Redwine family search for Dylan.

Sadie is the newest member of the bloodhound team - and she's trained for the task.

"I can't even imagine what they go through at night knowing their loved one is out there in the dark, in the cold," said Kessinger.

K-9 Forensics has worked with local, state and federal law enforcement searching for missing people.

Kessinger says the Dylan Redwine case has really touched her heart.

"We have the skills and the ability to give closure to this family and if he's there I know we can find him," said Kessinger.

Kessinger say her bloodhound Sadie is one of many, and the team is ready for this search.

Kessinger wants the Redwine family to know they're willing to search and continue it - even if law enforcement call of ftheir search.

The organization has no fee and is on standby - ready to act if asked.

"When we do give a family closure it is bittersweet, but you know they can at least sleep then at night and have peace again," said Kessinger.
 
We wanted to know if after more than two months, the dogs would be able to pick up a scent.
     
Experts tell KOB Eyewitness News 4 it is still possible with cadaver dogs 

The Redwine family did not respond to calls for comment.
