Family and friends of Maya"May" Millete, a California mother of three who was missing since Jan. 7, held a rally in the Chula Vista Police Department headquarters Friday to increase awareness regarding her disappearance.
"I am pleading, anybody out there, please, anybody, someplace, somehow may know where my sister's whereabouts [are]. Please bring her home," Maricris Drouaillet, Millete's sister, said through tears Friday.
"Her kids, they need their mom. Please, help us find my sister. Anyone on the market, in case you have any information in any way, please help me, help us find my sister."
Police conducted a search warrant in Millete's home on Jan. 23 and have interviewed family, friends, and coworkers, but they said the interviews"haven't assisted in locating her."
Her husband, Larry Millete, was originally cooperative, has hired an attorney and is no longer answering questions from police, FOX 5 accounts .
Larry Millete originally told that the local news station he believed his wife left their home in early January to get some alone time.
"Initially, that is exactly what I believed," he told FOX 5 final month. "However, as the days gone by, it is very unlikely that that's it, since she would not be gone long. I'm still very optimistic that with this media coverage, she'll turn up and say,'Hey, I'm alright.'"
Chula Vista Police Chief Roxana Kennedy said Friday her department understands the need for replies, but"cannot discuss all of the steps in our investigative process because we cannot compromise our evaluation."
"We're doing everything we possibly can to come up with answers right now. And I would like you to know my entire crimes and violence team was working around the clock with this situation since day one and they are following all leads."
Family and friends of all Maya are planning rallies in three distinct Chula Vista places Saturday to continue to raise awareness about her disappearance and push for the search to continue.
Anyone who has any information regarding Maya's disappearance should call the Chula Vista Police Department in 619-691-5139 or the San Diego Crime Stoppers tip line in 888-580-8477.Updated Date: 06 February 2021, 06:32
