DURANGO, Colo. (AP) - The father of a boy missing for six months is criticizing how missing children's cases are handled by authorities.
9WANTS TO KNOW: What happened to Dylan Redwine?
Mark Redwine said in an interview with the Durango Herald that no Amber Alert was issued when Dylan Redwine first went missing Nov. 19 from the Vallecito area because the case didn't meet the criteria for an alert.
Mark Redwine says no child who is missing should have to wait for certain criteria to be met before the public is notified and an alert sent out.
Law-enforcement officers say they have to confirm a child has been abducted before issuing an alert.
