DENVER (CBS4) – Volunteers probed a frozen lake on Monday searching for missing teen Dylan Redwine, but came up with nothing. The 14-year-old boy vanished during a court ordered visit with his father last November.
Redwine’s family is scheduled to appear on the Dr. Phil Show on Tuesday to talk about the case. In previews of the show it appears Dylan’s father and mother, Mark and Elaine Redwine, who went through a messy divorce, get into some heated arguments.
Searchers drilled a hole in the ice on a Vallecito lake over the weekend to look for any sign of Dylan.
CBS4’s Jeff Todd recently talked with Dylan’s father, Mark Redwine. He said he’s been working with a group called K-9 Forensics out of Albuquerque, N.M. who were going to search the Vallecito area so that they could eliminate it as a possible area where Dylan could be. But he also said the family feud that will play out on the Dr. Phil show the next two days could bring the national attention the search needs.
It’s a family feud that’s played out in the media for the last 90 days.
“Tensions are high between all of us, specifically with mom and my older son Corey and myself,” Mark Redwine told CBS4.
Twelve days ago when CBS4 talked to Mark Redwine, he said he was hoping the Dr. Phil Show could bring clarity to the situation.
“(By) keeping the focus on finding Dylan rather than airing our dirty laundry and pointing fingers and making accusations,” Mark Redwine said. “There’s plenty of time for that later down the road. What we need to be doing is focusing on finding Dylan.”
Signs still plaster the community in near Durango, but the family’s disagreements haven’t helped the search.
“All the things that have gone on and the conflict between us has put him in a bad situation,” Mark Redwine said. “Is it enough to make him run away? I would choose to say no, but who knows what goes on in a 13-year-old’s head?”
With signs and wrist bands now going worldwide, so has the search. Earlier this month, La Plata County sheriff’s investigators said they have tips coming in from as far away as Australia, but it wasn’t Dylan.
The entire conversation with the Redwines airs Tuesday at 4 p.m. on Dr. Phil on CBS4.
