(CBS/AP) DURANGO, Colo. - Authorities are searching the home of Mark Redwine, the father of Dylan Redwine, a 13-year-old boy who went missing Nov. 19 while visiting his father for Thanksgiving.
Police have ruled out the possibility that Dylan ran away but they are still treating the case as a search and not a recovery effort, CBS affiliate KKTV reports. Investigators have not called the boy's father a suspect in the disappearance, but they are searching the home as a precaution since that was the last place Dylan was seen, according to the station.
Dylan was picked up by his father on Nov. 18 at Durango-La Plata County Airport for a court ordered visitation. The boy's mother, Elaine Redwine said Dylan announced his arrival in a text message that ended with a scowling emoticon. The boy's aunt, Lia Howard, said that Dylan had wanted to spend the holiday with other family members and was disappointed he had to go to see his father
Dylan was last seen by his father on the morning of November 19. According to Mark Redwine, Dylan was still at home when Mark left to run some errands at 7:30 a.m., but was gone when Mark returned four hours later, KKTV reports. The station reports that after he searched for the boy himself, Mark called police and notified them Dylan was missing.
According to The Associated Press, Dylan was planning on setting off to meet friends in the area while his father was out. Dylan lived in La Plata County until four months ago when his mother moved to Colorado Springs. The boy's parents got divorced in 2007.
Dylan is 5 feet tall, weighs 105 pounds and has blond hair, blue eyes and fair complexion. He was last seen wearing a blue-and-white Duke Blue Devils baseball cap, black Nike T-shirt and black Jordan tennis shoes.
