Missing Colorado teen Dylan Redwine still hasn't been found, but his loved ones are still pushing for awareness in hopes of a conclusion to this ordeal. The reward for information on his whereabouts (or the person/s behind his disappearance) has been raised to $16,000. But will this amount of money lead to any motion in the case?
Colorado officials are hoping the raised reward will inspire someone to come forward with information. The reward, which is being offered by Crimestoppers, is just $5,000 more than the original $11,000, so who knows what kind of impact it will have? What is known, however, is that there are many other cases of this or similar caliber with far higher rewards, and many of these children haven't been found. Such missing kids include Lisa Irwin and Sky Metalwala.
Hopefully the reward proves helpful in the case, because there needs to be more tips for investigators to use in the search. Dylan Redwine was last seen over a month ago, and over the course of the search, area sex offenders have been investigated. It seems that detectives have run into a bit of a wall since all of the registered sex offenders in the area have alibis.
So what happened to this young man?
