The family of long-missing Chula Vista mother Maya Millete held another search party Sunday as part of their never-ending quest to reunite with their loved one.

It’s been more than a year since Millete vanished or contacted her family, sparking a frantic and emotional search for her. The mother of three was last seen Jan. 7, 2021 and since then, authorities have presumed she is dead. Her husband, Larry Millete, was arrested on suspicion of her murder.

Although police believe she is no longer alive, Maya’s body has not been recovered.

“It’s been a nightmare. It’s a rollercoaster feeling,” Maya’s sister and longtime advocate, Maricris Drouaillet, said in May during a celebration for the missing woman’s 41st birthday. “The thought of not knowing where she is…where she’s at…is really unbearable pain.”  

The public was invited to participate in Sunday’s search party, which will be held from 4 to 7 p.m.

The search group can be contacted by call or text (909) 741-MAYA or email
