Update: Yesterday brought the terrible news that Dylan Redwine, the thirteen year old who went missing in the Vallecito Lake area last November, was dead. Authorities confirmed that bones found during a recent search were part of his remains; see our previous coverage below. Now, doubt has been removed about whether his passing could have been of natural causes or due to an accident of some kind.
