Object defaultArg = Type.Missing;

// Copy the source sheet

curWorkBook = app.Workbooks.Open("c:\\SyntBotsExecutionReport.xlsm");
workSheet = (Worksheet)curWorkBook.Sheets[2];

// Paste on destination sheet
destWorkbook = app.Workbooks.Open("c:\\Output.xlsx");

// curWorkBook.Save();
// curWorkBook.Close(defaultArg, defaultArg, defaultArg);
// }

// if (destWorkbook != null)
// {

I haven't tested this myself but my understanding is;
a) Get the Worksheet Used Range
curWorkBook = app.Workbooks.Open("c:\\SyntBotsExecutionReport.xlsm");
workSheet = (Worksheet)curWorkBook.Sheets[2];
Excel.Range sourceRange = workSheet.UsedRange;

b) Apply the filter - Refer MSDN - Range.AutoFilter Method (Excel)[^]
sourceRange.AutoFilter(<columnnumber1>, <crteriastring1>, <operator>, <columnnumber2>, <criteriastring2>);</criteriastring2></columnnumber2></operator></crteriastring1></columnnumber1>

c) Get the filtered range - refer MSDN - Range.SpecialCells Method (Excel)[^]
Excel.Range filteredRange = sourceRange.SpecialCells(XLCellType.xlCellTypeVisible, XLSpecialCellsValue);

And then you will have an uncle named Bob
