Lauren dumolo CAPE CORAL:
Lauren Dumolo, a missing Cape Coral woman, is getting national attention on the Dr. Phil Show.
Fox 4 learnt about Lauren’s latest effort to find her after speaking with Lauren, the woman who made it possible.
Whitney Vanosdol is her name and she lives in Cape Coral. She says that even though she has never met Lauren Dumolo personally, she felt a strong connection with her.
Vanosdol met Dr. Phil through her work as a hairdresser and make-up artist at major production companies in Los Angeles.
Lauren applied for a job at a sandwich shop in a convenience store on June 18, 2020. This was captured on surveillance camera.
Cassie Carey, Cassie’s sister, said the next day that she called Cassie Carey three times and messaged her, but never heard back.
Gabriel Pena, Lauren’s boyfriend on and off again, called Lauren’s father that evening
to inform her that she wasn’t home. Lauren’s father instructed him to call Lauren when she got back.
The call did not come.
Lauren’s purse was found in a park by a passerby on June 20 and it was turned over to police.
Although Cape Coral police searched the area and used cadaver dogs to search for Lauren, Lauren was still missing.
