LA PLATA COUNTY - The family of a missing teenage boy from Monument returned to Southwest Colorado Sunday morning to search an area of Vallecito Lake for Dylan Redwine.

Redwine, 14, disappeared a week before Thanksgiving in 2012. He was last seen at his father's home near Bayfield, Colorado.

Directly after he disappeared, members of the La Plata County Sheriff's Department as well as a dive team from New Mexico searched a portion of Vallecito lake for Redwine.

In November, K9 forensic dogs picked up a human scent under the lake, but dive teams discovered nothing. Since then, Redwine's family has started their own independent investigation.

Out of curiosity they wanted to return to the lake and have the dogs sniff it out again. On Sunday morning, they sliced open a portion of the frozen lake and put the dogs to work. It's unclear whether the dogs were able to pick up a scent again.

The La Plata County Sheriff's Department was not a part of Sunday's search of the lake.

The family set up a Dylan Redwine Facebook Page to keep everyone up to date on the investigation: https://www.facebook.com/FindMissingDylanRedwine
