Searchers are looking for Maya “May” Millete, a Filipino American mother of three in Chula Vista, California, who has been missing for a week.

Millete, 39, was last seen Thursday evening, Jan. 11, in her Chula Vista home near the San Miguel Ranch area, according to her loved ones. Her car is still at her residence and her phone has been going to voicemail since her disappearance.

She is 5-feet-2-inches tall, weighs about 105 pounds, has brown hair and eyes and freckles. She has a wrist tattoo.

Millete has three children, aged 4, 9 and 11. Her family had been planning a birthday party set for this past weekend for her oldest child at Big Bear Lake, near San Diego.

Her kin thought she was just blowing off steam in her locked bedroom after an argument with her husband the day before. They have contacted hospitals, jails and morgues, but she hasn’t been found in those locations. They have organized a search party to look for her.

Police are not yet treating her disappearance as a criminal case, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. The Chula Vista police created a missing person case for Millete and have a detective working to find her.

Anyone who has seen Millete or who knows of her whereabouts is urged to contact the Chula Vista Police Department at (619) 691-5151 and refer to case number 21-00932. Millete’s family can also be contacted here and appreciate any tips the public can offer.
