The search continues for Lauren Dumolo, a Cape Coral woman who went missing on June 19, 2020.

Dumolo was last seen in her apartment on Coronado Parkway in Cape Coral. However, her purse was found at Four Freedoms Park and then reported missing on June 21.

Over the last three years, pictures of Dumolo were put on signs, benches and tv for everything possible to see if anyone knows where she is.

“We have this open wound, and we’re constantly picking at it, so there’s no healing, there’s no resolution, there’s no peace,” Dumolo’s sister, Cassie Carey, said.

Despite the three years, Carey’s memories of her sister haven’t diminished.

“If something good would have happened my day, I would call her. If something bad happened in my day. I would call her if I needed a good laugh. I call her because she had the best laugh. It was annoying at times, but the best,” Carey said.

Cape Coral Police are still working on Dumolo’s disappearance.

“I want this to end. I want this nightmare to end and just know that she’s at peace,” Lindsey Smith, Dumolo’s half-sister said.

All the family wants is peace and closure.

“It’s been hard on the entire family. It’s hard to process something like that and not everyone knows how to handle it,” Matt Smith, Dumolo’s brother-in-law, said.

“She’s just very missed and three years just means… I’m going to suffer until I or my family finds out what really happened to her,” Lindsey said.

Nobody from Cape Coral Police was available to speak about where the investigation stands.

Dumolo has a tattoo of the word namaste on her right side and the letters NY on her pelvis.
