CAPE CORAL, Fla. — The search continues for a missing Cape Coral mother.

Police say 30-year-old Lauren Dumolo went missing from her Cape Coral apartment on June 19, 2020.

While two months have passed since anyone has seen Lauren, her loved ones are not losing hope she will make it back home to her young daughter.

"Her laugh, her smile, her giving soul, she was such a giving person," said Paul Dumolo.

Those are things Paul Dumolo says he remembers the most of his daughter, Lauren Dumolo.

Since Lauren's disappearance, Paul Dumolo has been desperately looking for answers on where she could be.

"We've gotten all sorts of clues, but it seems everything seems to lead nowhere, it comes to a dead-end," said Paul Dumolo.

The Southwest Florida community, rallying behind the Dumolo family, also helping in the search for Lauren.

On Thursday, a handful of volunteers handed out 125 of yard signs with Lauren Dumolo's picture in hopes of generating new leads.

"The goal here is to get as many of these signs as possible in high visibility areas in Downtown Cape Coral," said Trish Routte, Crime Stoppers Coordinator.

A volunteer coming up with the idea, with support from Crime Stoppers.

"We're trying to find one more way to get the word out there that Lauren is still missing, and that we need the public's help," said Routte.

Routte says they hope someone who may have information or may have seen Lauren on or immediately after June 19, 2020, will recognize her picture and help put the puzzle together of her disappearance.

"I'll never lose hope until I have an answer one way or another, I have to think of the worst but hope for the best at this point," said Paul Dumolo.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477) to remain anonymous.

"The worst part is not having the answers," said Paul Dumolo. "I'm not going to stop until I find my daughter."
