CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - The search continued Saturday for 39-year-old Maya Millete, a Chula Vista woman who was last seen Jan. 7, 2021. Maya’s sister and her sister’s husband organized another volunteer search party, meeting at Mount San Miguel Park and combing through the Proctor Valley area. They supplied posters with Maya’s face and information on it for volunteers to put up as they searched.

“I’m a mother of two kids, and she’s been missing for 23 days, and I can’t imagine what it would be like for those kids, and I want answers for them,” said Kimberly Moreau, a volunteer who helped Saturday.

Maya was last seen Jan. 7 at her Chula Vista home. Her husband, Larry, said they had gotten in a fight and she left to blow off steam. When she didn’t show up to their daughter’s birthday party the next day, he knew something was wrong.


Her car is still at her Chula Vista home. There has been no activity on her bank statements, and her phone goes straight to voicemail.

Maya’s sister said Chula Vista Police have not been able to give them updates on the investigation, so they’re continuing to hold these searches to remind the community that she is still missing.

"I ask the public to continue praying, hoping my sister is going to come home," she said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chula Vista Police Department at 619-691-5151 or Crime Stoppers at 619-235-8477.
