A Pagosa Springs juvenile was reported missing Thursday, Feb. 14.

Seventeen-year-old Dylan McKee was last seen in the early morning of Feb. 14, and was reported missing later that day.

McKee is described as being 5 feet 9 inches or 5 feet 10 inches, weighing 180 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, according to Archuleta County Undersheriff Rich Valdez.

He was last seen driving a maroon or dark red Chevy Malibu, possibly a Malibu wagon, Valdez said.

According to Valdez, McKee was said to be playing video games with a friend in the early hours of Feb. 14. The friend reported in an initial interview with law enforcement that he had last seen McKee around 4 a.m.

The next morning, McKee’s mother woke to find her son missing from their Hatcher Lake-area home.

An investigation into the matter revealed that McKee had used his debit card around 3:30 a.m. to purchase about $45 worth of fuel from the Giant gas station, Valdez said.

Footage obtained from the scene showed McKee with a woman that Valdez said his heavy-set, wearing glasses, and wearing a dark-colored shirt. Officials believe the female’s name may be Tessa.

The vehicle then left in an unknown direction, Valdez said.

“At this point, we’re doing everything we can,” Valdez said, indicating a search of the Hatcher Lake area had been performed.

A photo was not available as of 12:30 p.m., but will be uploaded to when available.

Valdez said additional information will be added to as it is known.
