At the entrance to the road where Dylan Redwine lived in Monument, a simple message and scripture in chalk, colors the black pavement.
“Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted,” Mason Wolfe said as she read the bible verse she wrote on the road.
“The family is going to be driving past it so I just want to let them know that they’re not in this alone, we’re all in this as a community and that we’re there to support them,” Wolfe said.
Investigators with the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office say that there was no new information that caused them to search the Middle Mountain area where they found Dylan’s remains and other items; they just had to wait for snow to melt. CBI confirmed through tests the identity of the remains.
“We’re only hopeful that this will give them some small closure, that they will be able to bring Dylan home,” said Dan Bender, a La Plata County Sheriff’s spokesperson.
Dylan was reported missing Nov. 19, 2012, by his mother, Elaine Redwine, who lives in the Colorado Springs area. He was staying with his father, Mark Redwine, in Vallecito during a court-ordered visitation during the Thanksgiving Day holiday.
“We are going to be as vigilant as ever in pursuing this criminal investigation,” Bender said.
According to the “Find Missing Dylan Redwine” Facebook page, a candlelight vigil will be held this Saturday in Bayfield, Colorado, at 8:30 P.M. We will update you with any memorial scheduled in the Monument area.
