Maya Millete’s friends and family are still searching for the mother of three after she disappeared from her home in Chula Vista, California, in January.
In fact, 50 of Maya’s loved ones held a massive search party on Saturday, April 10, to search for the 39-year-old. They also held a vigil on Sunday, April 11 in conjunction with the “Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and People” organization.
“It’s time to call the community together, and it’s time for everyone to stay together and stay in this fight. It’s time for the Chula Vista Police Department to step up,” Teyana Viscarra said to the group on Sunday, according to Fox News.
Though it’s been over three months since she disappeared, they are holding out hope they’ll be able to find her.
Maya, who is a civilian contractor for the Navy, was last seen at her home on the evening of January 7. At the time, Maya was in an argument with her husband, Larry Millete.
Maya’s sister, Maricris Drouaillet, sent a clear message to Larry and his family during Sunday’s gathering, as he is not assisting in the search to find his wife.
“To Larry and the Millete family: for 21 years, Maya has been part of your family. She has been a dedicated wife, a loving mother, a friend, a supporter,” Maricris shared.
“Now Maya, she’s nowhere to be found. 21 years doesn’t go away overnight. She didn’t just get up, walk away, and vanish into thin air. She loved her kids more than anything in this world.”
Maricris continued, “For the last three months, since she’s been missing, you have not shown empathy, nor concern for her. Help us bring your wife home. Help us bring your kids’ mother home.”
According to Fox, Maya was actually looking for divorce lawyers in a Facebook group of mothers in Chula Vista the day she went missing. She also reportedly made an appointment to meet with a divorce lawyer the following week.
In fact, just days after Maya went missing, Larry told San Diego’s KGTV that they “had problems this year.”
What’s most shocking of all is the fact Maya told her family that “if anything happened to me, it would be Larry.” There has yet to be an arrest made in this case.
