CHULA VISTA, Calif. — Chula Vista police are looking for a 23-year-old woman who was reported missing.

Around 2:15 a.m. Sunday, Milyn Elizabeth Chew, also known as Milyn Navarro, left her boyfriend’s home in San Ysidro and drove to her family’s house in eastern Chula Vista, according to police.

Later that morning, her family found Milyn’s car parked at the home and her keys hung up inside the house. They could not find Milyn, whose phone went straight to voicemail. Milyn was supposed to work later but never showed.

Phone records show she had contact with Aser Elsharkawy around 2:30 a.m. that morning. Aser was also reported missing by his family and has not shown up at work.

Both families say it is unusual behavior. The relationship between the two, other than being quasi-coworkers, was not known.

Aser’s vehicle is described as a blue BMW 3 series with California license plate No. 6PWS494.
