The search for Dylan Redwine isn't over, and the tenacity of the community near Vallecito Reservoir indicates that it won't be over until the young man is found or all questions are answered. Unfortunately searches of this caliber require funds and volunteer time because investigative officials have to do their jobs as well. If you're wanting to get involved in the search for the missing teen, you can show your support by getting involved in any of the functions held in his honor.
On Tuesday a dinner/auction will be held at the Pine Valley Four Square Church Â— 1328 County Road 501. Admission is $5.00 and proceeds will go to the Find Dylan Redwine Fund, which is hosted by Wells Fargo bank. The monies garnered by this event and the fun set up in his name will be used to pay for supplemental services that the police are no offering at this time, such as bloodhound searches and hiring a private investigator.
Funding a missing persons search can be pricey so it's always appreciated by honest people when they are given the help they need to fund such an important subject. If you're in Colorado and want to help, consider doing so.
In the meantime, you can connect online with any of the communities that are set up to spread awareness about Dylan's case. This Facebook page is one of the many, and is supposedly being moderated by a friend of the boy's mother.
Animosity in the case of this missing teen
Tension is high in this case, as it is in many cases of this caliber, and speculation is running through the roof. With the mother accusing the father of being involved in the case, there is a lot of negative chatter online. The reports of Mark Redwine's past aren't helping any, but it's important to remain neutral at this time because nobody really knows what happened. If the father is involved, investigators will likely get to the bottom of it. If he's not involved, what can be said about his reputation once this is over? It seems as though the boy left and met some kind of foul play while out of his father's home. The police have acknowledged that Mark is not a suspect in this case.
