Hubby Arrested 10 Months After California Mom Maya Millete Vanished

Facebook / Help Finding May
The husband of a missing California mother of three was arrested for her murder Tuesday, 10 months after her disappearance, according to authorities.
"Today Chula Vista Police announced the arrest of Larry Millete for the murder of his wife May," a press release said.
Maya “May” Millete, 39, was last seen alive on January 7, 2021, just before she and her husband were about to take their 4, 9 and 11-year-old daughters on a trip to the mountains. Her family said they called the police to report her missing on the night of January 9th.
May Millete's family told The Daily Beast Tuesday that they would be "making no comments at this time" about the bomb development.
On the day she disappeared, May reportedly made an appointment with a divorce lawyer for the following week. Although she said it was "for a friend," her older sister said she had been considering a divorce for the last year.
As previously reported by The Daily Beast, May was a defense contractor at the San Diego Naval Base planning a family trip to Big Bear to celebrate her daughter's 11th birthday. Her sister, Maricris Drouaillet, said the family began to worry after May's phone went straight to voicemail and texts about agreeing plans went unanswered.
“It was extremely unusual for my sister not to have her phone for so long - let alone turn it off and not be able to communicate with us at all. Especially since we had planned to go on a trip that day for her daughter's birthday, ”Drouaillet, 47, told The Daily Beast in March.

Drouaillet said when her older brother went to check in at Maya's home in Chula Vista, Larry Millete told them that after an argument she had locked herself in her room and not spoken to him or her three children all day. Days later, the family returned to the house and told Millete to open the bedroom door - only to find it empty. They called 911.
The search for Maya followed many trails but never led to discovery. Last spring, investigators looked for her remains on a disused golf course, but came back empty. Maya's body was never found.
Over the past nine months, Larry Millete has pleaded innocence in a case that has attracted national attention and rocked San Diego residents. After several local television interviews, Millete stopped talking about the case, stopped joining the seekers searching for May, and stopped attending public events designed to raise awareness of the case.
In February, police said he stopped talking to the police or his wife's family.
Millete did not respond to a text message sent to his phone Tuesday after news of his arrest emerged. In March, he told The Daily Beast via text message that the whole ordeal "was difficult for everyone."
He declined to comment on why he stopped working with the police, saying his children and I are getting on as best we can. I keep them busy, which in turn keeps me busy. "
"Everything I say or do seems to be misinterpreted or conveyed differently," he said at the time. "I hope you understand. Some, not all of the media have made our story sensational and already manipulated public opinion."
The police will announce further details about the arrest on Tuesday afternoon at a press conference. Detectives said they checked more than 130 leads, interviewed 87 people and received 67 search warrants during the investigation.
Chula Vista Police Department worked with the San Diego County District Attorney's Office, the FBI, and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service on the case. A spokesman for the Chula Vista Police Department was not immediately available for comment on Tuesday.
