SAN DIEGO – A group gathered for a prayer walk this weekend for missing mom Maya Millete nearly six months after she disappeared from her Chula Vista home.
The walk was held Sunday at De Anza Cove at Mission Bay Park.
“Today marks six months that we haven’t seen her,” Maya’s sister Maricris Drouaillet said.
Maricris and her husband Richard Drouaillet say it has been a difficult six months.
“Our lifestyle has changed, like she said, we are living in our trailer pretty much,” Richard Drouaillet said.
The Drouaillet family has been commuting constantly from Riverside to San Diego County following Maya’s disappearance in January.
“This is what you do for family and you don’t turn your back on family ever,” Richard Drouaillet said. “If one of us goes missing, if one of your community members goes missing, this is what the community does. Tthey come together and we look for them and we don’t give up until we find answers.”
Strangers joined Maya’s family and friends as they bowed their heads in prayer. Their request: Maya’s safe return.
“They don’t even know Maya, they just heard her story and it touched their heart, and they are here, they are very dedicated, and again we learn to love them too,” Maricris Drouaillet said.
TeamMaya has more searches planned. Posts and information can be found on the “Help Find Maya” Facebook page.
