The search continues on Saturday for a Colorado boy whose mother says he would not leave willingly.

Dylan Redwine, 13, was last seen by his father, Mark Redwine at 7:30 a.m., Nov. 26, 2012, at his home on 2343 County Road 500 in Vallecito. Mark left to run errands and when he returned his son was gone, reports Fox News. Around 4:30 p.m., that evening he was reported missing by his father, reports the Pine River Times.

“Dylan wouldn’t have left willingly, Elaine Hatfield, Dylan’s mother said on Friday, reports Fox News. “If there was any way to communicate he would have called.”

Dylan, who lives with his mother in Colorado Springs arrived at Durango-La Plata County Airport on Sunday to spend the Thanksgiving break from school with his father. Elaine who is currently in Vallecito to help to search for her son, said that Dylan sent her a text message when he arrived with a scowling smiley face. She added that Dylan rarely visited his father as his father never exercised his visitation rights.

Dylan’s mother and father have been going through a custody dispute, and the boy was visiting his father as part of a court order, reports KRQE news.

Elaine is convinced that Dylan did not vanish on his own, and discounts sighting of him on Monday and Tuesday. She said her son was happy and he had friends and hung out at Skate City and began eighth grade in August, reports the Durango Herald.

Dylan RedwineThe authorities have searched for Dylan, but they have little to go on. A search and rescue group along with dogs turned up nothing so far. The community has come together and formed search parties to search Vallecito and nearby Bayfield all this week.

Dylan is described as 5 feet tall, 105 pounds, 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.
