Dog team finds scent in search for boy
- A team of cadaver dogs working to locate a missing Colorado teen Dylan Redwine has picked up a scent near Vallecito Lake, one of the focal points in the three-month search.
"We had a couple of hits in that area," said Wendy Kessenger of K9 Forensics. "What we did is we moved it closer to east side of lake where the five branch rivers flow into each on that side and we had many alerts going off there."
The K9 group from Edgewood has been in the Vallecito area for two weeks. They say while they have gotten scents, they have not found any sign of Dylan.
Dylan disappeared during a court-ordered visit with his father for Thanksgiving.
The group will share their findings with the La Plata County Sheriff's Department, which will then decide what to do next.
K9 Forensics volunteered its services for the search.
"To give closure to families because on such a huge search like this the funds run out, the manpower of overtime, they can't keep up with it," Kessenger said. "And when they can't make the find, the family is like, 'Well, what next?' They're kind of left hanging."
The group is expected to search for a couple more days
