Maya Millete, a Californian mother of three who has been missing for three months, sought advice from divorce lawyers on a Facebook group for mothers in her area on Jan. 7, the day she went missing at her Chula Vista home has been.
“Asking a Friend – Has anyone used or been going through the services of the San Diego Collaborative Divorce Practice? Looking for Insights? Positive / Negative?” She wrote to other mothers just after noon, just hours before she was last seen.
A presenter for the group told Fox News that Maya likely said she was asking on behalf of a friend “in a desperate attempt to remain anonymous.”
Later that day, Maya made an appointment with a divorce attorney, Marisa Nahale, for the following week.

Maricris Drouaillet, Maya’s older sister, said Maya was considering a divorce later in 2020.
“It built up over the year,” she told Fox News on Friday. “I think she finished in December, and then she finally made up her mind to file that divorce that day.”

Maya Millete was last seen by her family at their home around 5 p.m., according to the Chula Vista Police Department.
Larry Millete, Maya’s husband, got into an argument with his wife that day the last time he saw her, told San Diego’s KGTV-TV.
“We had problems, ups and downs this year,” he told the news agency.
About five hours after Maya was last seen, six loud bangs were heard on a neighbor’s surveillance system at around 10 p.m., KFMB-TV reported this week.

Drouaillet told TV presenter Nancy Grace that Larry, Maya, and the kids all turned off their phones the next day, January 8, which the family found strange because Maya is “always online.”
“It was very unusual that they were not online at all,” said Drouaillet.
Larry Millete told police he took his son to the beach from 6:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Jan. 8, Drouaillet told KFMB.
The next day, January 9th, Maya’s parents came into the house and Larry unlocked the door to the bedroom where the family thought Maya was but she wasn’t there. They then reported her missing and Chula Vista police opened a missing person case in the early hours of January 10th.
Maya Millete is the mother of three children aged 4, 9 and 11.

Now, three months later, the Chula Vista Police Department said they were still “conducting searches, tracking and following any advice or advice received” but had no evidence of a crime or identified any suspects or individuals of interest.
Fox News exclusively reported earlier this week that Maya’s family members claim they warned them in the weeks leading up to their disappearance: “If something happened to me, it would be Larry.”
