Butch Melton, standing right, gives instructions to volunteers Saturday morning who gathered at Edgemont Ranch. Between volunteers, police and other agencies, about 350 people were involved in Saturday's search.
Here is this weekend's release from the La Plata County Sheriff's Department:
Approximately 310 people took part Saturday in a search that covered 60 linear miles in an attempt to find clues related to 13-year-old Dylan Redwine, who has been missing since Nov. 19.
Saturday's primary search area was several miles on either side of La Plata County Road 240 also known as Florida Road as well as side
roads and other locations in the area. There were no new tips that led to Saturday's search. Florida Road is a common route between Durango and Vallecito where Dylan was last seen. Investigators wanted to cover the route before a series of predicted snow systems enter the area.
263 members of the public signed in Saturday morning to take part in the search. After a briefing, the volunteers were assigned to small groups with team leaders from La Plata County Search & Rescue and driven to designated search areas. Busses and drivers were provided by the Bayfield School District. Dylan was a student in Bayfield before moving to Colorado Springs.
Of dozens of items flagged by searchers, 10 were collected by law enforcement investigators for future reference.
All searchers were safely out of the field by 4 p.m.
On another note:
There will be a fundraiser Tuesday from 5 to 8 p.m. at Pine Valley Church on CR 501. Funds from a spaghetti supper and silent auction donations will be donated to the Find Dylan Redwine fund at Wells Fargo Bank. It is overseen by his mother and her fiance.
