Since Maya got missing, her family and friends have joined in the frantic search for her. There have been 75 tips for officers in the last few months, including possible sightings of the lady ay New Mexico and Arizona.

Thirty-one search warrants have also been issued and carried out in places like residences, vehicles, cellular and cloud data, and social media. A search was also executed in the Milete’s home.


Prior to the police search, Larry Milete, who is Maya’s husband, was on a gun violence restraining order because he was allegedly found to be in possession of legal and illegal firearms.

Besides the warrant issued for Maya’s home, her relatives also received search warrants.


The restraining order document featured a photo of his and Maya’s 4-year-old son posing with a cache of firearms. Larry, who is a Navy Veteran, accused the Police of violating his second amendment rights.

However, reports show that he did not confirm if his firearms were illegal. Prior to the latest update, a family member made it known that they had a “good meeting” with the Police.


During the search within the missing woman’s home, Police set up a 3D tripod camera while also lifting boxes away to their laboratory. A source noted that black lights were also used to search for blood traces.

Besides the warrant issued for Maya’s home, her relatives also received search warrants. The Chula Vista Police Department has shared that thousands of data are under review concerning Maya’s disappearance.

As of May 14, the Cold Case Foundation contacted the police offering to help with the search. A victim’s advocate was also assigned to her family so they could get information regarding progress on Maya’s case.
