DURANGO, Colo. (CBS4)– The father of missing Colorado teenager Dylan Redwine said he believes his son is still alive and the family has plans to appear on the Dr. Phil show.
“I have no reason not to believe that (he’s alive),” said Mark Redwine.
Dylan, 14, disappeared in Southern Colorado nearly three months ago — the Monday before Thanksgiving. There are very little clues to his disappearance.
“It’s frustrating for all of us because there’s so little to go on,” said Mark Redwine. “The tensions are very high between all of us.”
Dylan vanished while visiting his father in Vallecito, outside Durango. He lived with his mother in Colorado Springs and was on a court-ordered visit with his father.
Mark Redwine said he’s still working with search crews.
“Basically they want to come up here and eliminate the Vallecito area as a possibility for where Dylan could be so we can focus our search efforts on other places that he could possibly be,” said Mark Redwine.
Without any clues there are still countless unanswered questions. The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office said it doesn’t have a suspect.
A divided family is in the middle of the tragic situation.
“My ex-wife and I both agree that Dylan is not the kind of kid that would run away but I also think that there’s a possibility that Dylan was torn between his parents,” said Mark Redwine.
“My fear is he’s out there somewhere, able to see what’s going on and he sees the conflict going on between his mom and I,” said Mark Redwine. “I think that’s a huge concern. But who knows what goes through a 13-year-old’s head.”
Dylan’s 14th birthday was last week. Dozens gathered to celebrate in Monument in his absence with cake and balloons, holding out hope he will be found soon.
The entire family said they just want their youngest member to come home.
“We don’t know where Dylan’s at. We have no idea where Dylan’s at. It could be anywhere.”
Mark Redwine told CBS4 he plans to appear on the Dr. Phil show with his ex-wife and the group that is leading the search as early as next week.
