CHULA VISTA – Family and friends are organizing searches for a Chula Vista mother of three who has been missing since last week.
Maya “May” Millete was last seen Thursday evening in Chula Vista near her home in the San Miguel Ranch area. That’s when Millete’s siblings say they last heard from the 39-year-old.
“I can’t even explain what I’m feeling right now,” her brother Jay R. Tabalanza said. “I’m sad, and scared for her.”
He said Millete’s car is still parked in the driveway and her cellphone has been turned off for days. Her 11-year-old daughter had a birthday on Saturday but family said Millete never showed up.
“It’s not like her. She has three beautiful kids and they are her life. She wouldn’t leave them for more than a day,” her sister Mari Cris Drouaillet said, adding about Millete and her husband, “They’ve been together since they were 18 years old, married for 22 years, but there’s been some marital issues.”
No one answered when FOX 5 knocked on Millete’s door Tuesday. Chula Vista police opened a missing person case and continue to investigate. At this point, detectives working the case say they don’t believe a crime has been committed.
Her family and friends plan to meet at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Mt. San Miguel Park’s basketball courts to conduct a search party.
“We are just hoping, still hoping,” Drouaillet said.
A missing person flier circulated for Millete described her as 5-foot-2 and about 105 pounds with brown hair, brown eyes, freckles and a wrist tattoo.
Anyone who has seen Millette or who has information on her whereabouts is urged to contact the Chula Vista Police Department at 619-691-5151.
