The family of a mother of three missing for three months says she had filed papers to seek a divorce attorney the day of her disappearance, reports ABC News.
Maya Millete hasn’t been seen since January 7 when she disappeared from her Chula Vista home near San Diego.
“Please bring her home. We need our sister, the kids. They need her mom. Please,” said Maya’s sister, Maricris Drouaillet, according to ABC30.
Fox News reports a member of the family quoted Millete as saying during a camping trip in early January “If anything happened to me, it would be Larry.”
The couple has been married for 21 years and had been high school sweethearts.
According to Fox, Larry Millete suspected his wife of having a boyfriend and according to an unidentified source, frequently talked about paying someone $20,000 to kill his missing wife’s alleged boyfriend.
“She just doesn’t disappear, Drouaillet told ABC News.
The family has grown frustrated saying it has not received any updates from the police for months.
“As we near the three-month anniversary of May’s disappearance, I want to reassure May’s family, and our community that she is not forgotten and that bringing her home safely remains our number one priority,” police said in a statement. “The Chula Vista Police Department has been actively and continuously investigating her disappearance,” it said in a statement overnight.
