Tips in Redwine disappearance lead nowhere

Posted

A tip in the Dylan Redwine disappearance that came in from a postal worker when the Monument teen first went missing has come up empty.

According to the La Plata County Sheriff's Office a postal worker reported seeing Redwine and another boy walking down a road around 2:00 p.m. on the day he disappeared. Investigators have identified and contacted the two young men and determined that it was not Redwine and that the young men have no connection to his disappearance.

Additionally the sheriff's office had also trying to locate a man who was seen in the area looking for gas the day Redwine disappeared. They were able to identify and locate the man and said he was in town on legitimate business and has not been linked to the teen's disappearance.

Redwine went missing on Nov. 19 from Vallecito the day after he arrived in town to visit his father for Thanksgiving. He had made plans to visit his friends the day he went missing. The last communication anyone had from Redwine was a text message at approximately 9:30 p.m. the night before.

Investigators continue to seek any information from the public and are investigating all tips that come in.
