Lauren Dumolo vanished from Cape Coral, Florida, on June 19, 2020, and hasn’t been seen since. The then 29-year-old’s purse, shirt, and shoes were found at a local park that she reportedly visited daily, but there was no sign of her.

“Unfortunately, this wasn’t the first time that Lauren had left belongings behind in the park, so something like that really wasn’t out of the ordinary for her,” says Detective Nick Jones of the Cape Coral Police Department.

Detective Jones, who classified Lauren as “missing and endangered” at the start of his investigation, says that her’s is one of the most difficult missing persons cases he’s ever worked. He says there are not currently any suspects or named persons of interest in the investigation into her disappearance.

Watch the video above to hear what other factors Detective Jones says have made Lauren’s disappearance so difficult to solve, then tune in to Tuesday’s Dr. Phil, "Missing Mom: Where is Lauren Dumolo?" to find out what is being done in her community to help find her.
