COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – As the mother of a missing 13-year-old from Colorado Springs continues to try to cope, the reward for information regarding the boy’s disappearance is growing.
Dylan Redwine has been missing since Nov. 19, a day after arriving at his father’s Vallecito home for a court-ordered visit during Thanksgiving break. The boy was living with his mother and brother in Colorado Springs.
His father says his son was sleeping when he left home to run errands in the town located in Southwestern Colorado, near Durango. When he came back home, Dylan was gone.
The reward in the case is now up to $30,000, and the tension is still high for Redwine’s mother Elaine Redwine.
“That’s all I have every day. It’s what makes me get up in the morning. It’s what eases my head when I go to sleep at night. It’s all about hope for Dylan and hope for finding him soon and safe,” she said.
Searchers have combed the area around Vallecito Lake and gone door-to-door without finding any sign of the boy. Tips are still coming in on the case but they have slowed down. Police do not think Redwine simply ran away.
“We will never ever ever give up on you Dylan. We love you and we need you home,” Elaine said.
