Officials warn of ransom scam in missing boy case

DURANGO — Authorities say someone is trying to capitalize on a missing boy case in Durango and scam people out of money by sending messages via Facebook demanding ransom money.

KMGH-TV reports Monday a person is falsely claiming to be a new resident of the area and is asking for $1,000 for a photo of Dylan Redwine and another $4,000 for the 13-year-old boy’s release.

A task force comprised of the sheriff’s office, FBI and other law enforcement agencies is conducting a criminal investigation into Dylan’s Nov. 19 disappearance from this father’s Vallecito home near Durango.

Authorities have released few details but say they do not believe that Dylan ran away.

About 300 people searched the area on Saturday and found some clues that were collected for future reference.
