The Colorado Bureau of Investigation told sheriff’s officials Thursday that testing indicated the remains were Dylan’s. The criminal investigation continues as to the boys disappearance and the cause of his death. Dylan Redwine has been missing since November 19, 2012 when he was at his fathers residence for a court-ordered visit in Vallecito with his father, Mark Redwine. When Mark Redwine returned home from running errands on Nov. 19, he said that Dylan was gone.

Authorities said Wednesday that a five-day search for signs of Dylan Redwine ended with the teams finding several undisclosed items.
Some of the items included bones, they said Thursday. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation told La Plata County sheriff’s officials Thursday that testing indicated the remains were Dylan’s.
“The parents are obviously devastated. It’s not the kind of news we were hoping to give them. We were hoping to find him alive,” Durango police Lt. Ray Shupe said. “Our hearts are broken that this is the end result.”

Authorities thought the area had too much snow for a thorough check and went back for a more intense search once the snow had melted.
“This was an area along Middle Mountain road which is a U.S. Forest Service road and it’s 12 miles long and there are may access points off of that and so it is not difficult to get to that area by vehicle,” said Bender.
Bender said the subdivision where Dylan was staying with his father is visible from Middle Mountain across the valley.
“We’re pursuing this as a criminal investigation and not an accident,” said Bender.
