CAPE CORAL, Fla.  — This Father’s Day weekend marks two years since Lauren Dumolo went missing.

Dumolo was last seen at her Cape Coral home downtown. The last call she received was from her sister Cassie on June 18, 2020, around 6:30 PM.

On Saturday, at Four Freedoms Park, friends and family came together to continue the search and encourage anyone with information on her disappearance to come forward. A statement from the family before the event said:

"Despite the fact that two years have passed, we are confident that there are people who know what happened to Lauren. But for whatever reason, they are choosing to remain silent. We also know that people change, and relationships change and that perhaps people who didn't feel comfortable talking two years ago might finally feel compelled to do so now. Our community remains vigilant in doing whatever we can to help get the answers that Lauren's family deserves and to help bring Lauren home."
Trish Routte, Crime Stoppers Manager

Attendees were asked to wear pink in Dumolo's honor.

The Cape Coral Police Department says they've gotten several leads since her disappearance, but none have panned out. It's that rut that Dumolo's family hopes holding regular public vigils will help to overcome.

"My goal is to just make Lauren's name a household name," said sister Cassie Carey. "I want everyone to know who Lauren Dumolo is."

For anyone who has information on the disappearance, call Crime Stoppers, who is offering a $3,000 reward for leading information that can close the case – also a local donor is offering a $5,000 reward.
