Missing Cape Coral woman found almost a year after her disappearance

The Shocking Disappearance

In March of 2020, a woman named Lauren Dumolo left her home in Cape Coral, Florida, and didn’t return. Her family and friends launched a search for her, but to no avail. There were no leads, no sightings, and no clues as to what happened to her. Her disappearance was a mystery that left everyone puzzled, and as time passed, hope of finding her alive dwindled. Almost a year later, Lauren was found, but not in the way anyone expected.

The Unconventional Discovery

On February 28th, 2021, almost a year after her disappearance, a kayaker was exploring a canal in Burnt Store Marina and came across a human skull. The discovery led to an immediate search of the area, and over the next few days, additional skeletal remains and clothing were found. It didn’t take long for the authorities to confirm that the remains belonged to Lauren Dumolo, the missing woman from Cape Coral.

The Investigation Continues

The discovery of Lauren’s remains has opened a new chapter in the investigation into her disappearance. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is now working on determining how she died, and whether there is foul play involved. They are also trying to locate any additional evidence that could help them solve the case. They have reached out to the public, asking anyone with information to come forward.

The Heartbreaking Aftermath

Lauren’s family and friends have been left devastated by the news of her death. They had hoped for a different outcome, but now they are left to mourn the loss of their loved one. Her parents have issued a statement thanking everyone who helped in the search for Lauren, and asking for privacy as they grieve. It’s clear that Lauren’s death has left a hole in the hearts of everyone who knew her.

The Impact on the Community

The discovery of Lauren’s remains has not only affected her family and friends, but the entire community of Cape Coral. The idea that someone could go missing for almost a year, only to be found dead in a nearby canal, has left many people feeling uneasy. It’s a reminder that anything can happen, and that tragedy can strike unexpectedly. It’s also a reminder that there is still a long way to go when it comes to solving cases of missing persons.

The Search for Justice

As the investigation into Lauren’s death continues, there is a growing sense of urgency to find the person or persons responsible. The community wants answers, and Lauren’s family deserves justice. The authorities have promised to pursue every lead and leave no stone unturned in their quest for the truth. Hopefully, they will be able to bring the perpetrator to justice and give the family of Lauren Dumolo some measure of closure.


The discovery of Lauren Dumolo’s remains almost a year after her disappearance has left everyone in Cape Coral reeling. It’s a tragic reminder that missing persons cases can often end in heartbreak. The investigation into her death is ongoing, and the community is united in their search for justice. Lauren’s family and friends will never forget her, and her memory will be honored by those who knew her. Rest in peace, Lauren.
