BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- Dylan Redwine’s father waived extradition to Colorado during a court appearance in Bellingham, Wash., Denver7 Investigates learned Tuesday.

Mark Redwine will be returned to Colorado as soon as La Plata County Sheriff deputies can make the arrangements, according to multiple sources close to the investigation.  

An extradition hearing fizzled last week when Redwine's court appearance was unexpectedly canceled. 

Redwine was arrested in Bellingham, Washington on July 22 in connection to 2012 death of his 13-year-old son, Dylan.

Dylan was on a court-ordered visit with his dad, near Durango, during Thanksgiving week when he disappeared. Some of the boy's remains were found in June 2013, about 10 miles from his father's home north of Vallecito Lake.

In August 2015, the La Plata County Sheriff’s Office and Coroner's Office announced that Dylan's manner of death had been updated to "homicide" and Mark Redwine was officially the person of interest.

Mark Redwine was charged with second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death.
