CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) -- Chula Vista Police served a search warrant at the home of a missing Chula Vista woman Saturday.

According to police, the goal of the warrant was to obtain evidence and clues regarding Maya Millete’s whereabouts. “The Chula Vista Police Department's focus will continue to be locating May safe and in good health,” authorities said.

The mother of three went was last seen at her Chula Vista home on January 7, her family said. She was reported missing on January 10. Millete works as a contract specialist for Naval Base San Diego. Earlier this month, police interviewed her husband, who said he last saw her at home on January 7.


Detectives previously said the couple had marital problems and that they had no leads or any indication of foul play. Millete’s brother-in-law, Richard Drouaillet, said the couple got into an argument the day before her disappearance.

"He says it's not the first time she has gone away, but my wife knows her sister really well, and she knows that this is not normal," Drouaillet said.

The family says their only goal is to find Millete. "It's overwhelming, there's nothing else to do but get her home. That's the number one thing ... Find her, get her home," Drouaillet added.

10News also spoke with Maya’s husband, Larry Millete. He said the couple are high school sweethearts and have been married for 21 years. The couple also has three children, ages 4, 9, and 11.

Millete said he became worried when Maya didn’t show up for their daughter’s birthday.

"That was a gutwrenching feeling ... you know, you kind of break down a little bit ... she would never, ever not even say 'hey honey, happy birthday,'" Millete said. "There's something keeping her from contacting us."
