Police announced on Wednesday that the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, or NCIS, is involved in the search for a California woman who vanished in early January.
KSWB reported that the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office and the FBI are also involved in the ongoing search for Maya Millete, 39. Chula Vista police also said on Wednesday that they have served 16 search warrants in this case — including at Millette’s residence and the home of her husband’s uncle and aunt.
Police announced Wednesday they have written a total of 16 search warrants, including for the home of a relative of Millete, which was searched on April 1. They also confirmed investigators are reviewing loud bangs captured on surveillance video the night Millete apparently vanished, according to KGTV.
“It is also important to note the Chula Vista Police Department did not receive any report of gunshots during the night in question and these bangs were discovered by investigators early on in the investigation,” they commented.
Millete was reportedly last seen on January 7 after video chatting with friends and getting into an argument with her husband. The missing woman’s sister said she disappeared the same day she scheduled an appointment with a divorce lawyer.
Millete’s husband allegedly said they had gotten into an argument and she locked herself in the bedroom. Millete was reported missing on January 9, after her family learned she was not in her bedroom as her husband previously claimed.
Maya Millete’s identification card, credit card, and phone also remain unaccounted for. Her credit card has not been used since her disappearance, and her phone goes straight to voicemail, according to reports.
Amid the police and family’s search for Millete, skeletal remains were discovered in the Bolsa Chica Wetlands on Monday. However, Huntington Beach police confirmed the remains belong to a male, according to KFMB.
No charges have been filed in connection with Maya Millete’s disappearance, but law enforcement officials said the case remains active.
