KEY POINTS

  • Maya Millete warned family members about her husband days before she disappeared
  • The couple had a troubled relationship and were seen arguing the last time relatives saw them together
  • Police, who have found no evidence of foul play, are still investigating the case

A missing California woman warned family members to blame her husband should anything happen to her days before vanishing.

"If anything happened to me, it would be Larry," 39-year-old May "Maya" Millete revealed to her relatives on a camping trip on Jan. 3, a member of Millete's family, who remains anonymous, told Fox News.

The missing Chula Vista woman was referring to her husband, Larry Millete, with whom she had a troubled relationship, according to relatives. 

Maricris Drouaillet, Millete's sister, said the couple had been "having marital problems," and that during the early January camping trip, the two had a lot of arguments. She also pointed out Larry was the last person to see her sister. 

Maya, a mother of three, disappeared on Jan. 7, the same day she was scheduled to meet with a divorce lawyer. She was reported missing to authorities two days later by her sister.

Larry initially cooperated with authorities before he retained a lawyer and stopped answering police questions in early February, according to Fox 5 San Diego

The missing woman's brother-in-law, Richard Drouaillet, said Larry was constantly contacting Millete's family seeking help with their relationship, but he "was more of an aggressor, trying to get us involved."

"He was trying to get us on his side, when we felt like it was a lot of lies that he was telling us," Richard Drouaillet said.

Some family members said they refused to disclose more details than they could because they were afraid of Larry Millete.

A spokesperson for the local police department said authorities have been aware of the information revealed by the family, but noted they have not found evidence of any foul play. Police said the investigation is ongoing.

"We certainly have people who remain crucial witnesses to her disappearance. We are in frequent communication with our regional partners about this case and are working to identify evidence, locate it, analyze it and follow where it leads," the Chula Vista Police Department said on Sunday.

The department encouraged anyone with any helpful information to step up to help with the investigation.

Anyone with information about Maya Millete's disappearance are encouraged to call the Chula Vista Police Department or Crime Stoppers.

"These types of cases can hinge on seemingly meaningless pieces of information but taken together, they can be very valuable," police said.
