Dylan's father, Mark, reported him missing. Dylan was staying at his father's home in Vallecito - about 22 miles northeast of Durango - since Sunday as part of a court-ordered Thanksgiving holiday visitation. Mark said Dylan was at his house on County Road 500 when he left to do some errands around 7:30 a.m. Monday. Mark said Dylan was gone when he returned around 11:30 a.m.
"We have not ruled out any possibility" Dan Bender, Public Information Officer for La Plata Sheriff's Office, said. "This is the fifth day Dylan has been missing with few clues to work from. We have to consider everything from foul play to a runaway. We hope the broadened exposure to the public through the news media, the work of our investigators, and the national reach offered by the FBI and National Center For Missing and Exploited Children will result in a positive conclusion with Dylan reunited with his family."
La Plata County Search and Rescue searched for Dylan Monday night and all day Tuesday. A resident who knows Dylan reported seeing him walking along County Road 501 in Vallecito on Monday afternoon before they knew he was missing.
Dylan is described as 5 feet tall, 105 pounds, blond hair, blue eyes with a fair complexion. He was last seen wearing a blue and white Duke Blue Devils baseball cap, a black Nike T-shirt, black basketball shorts, black Jordan tennis shoes and a black backpack.
Dylan, his mother and his brother had moved to Colorado Springs in the summer. His brother and mother came to Durango when he was reported missing.
"Dylan's entire family and many friends are clearly heartbroken over his disappearance and are very passionately trying to share information about his whereabouts to assist authorities," a statement released from a family spokesperson read. "The family continues to accept help from all possible individuals and organizations to find Dylan and bring him home."
Anyone who may have information on Dylan's whereabouts are asked to contact La Plata County Sheriff's Office investigators at 970-382-7015 or 970-382-7045.
