Larry Millett pleaded not guilty last week for the murder of his wife, who disappeared from his Chula Vista home more than nine months ago, but his family is now praying he will reverse course and Will lead the officers to his remains.

“We’re praying that he’ll do this for his kids, that he’ll tell them where Mommy is,” Maya Millet’s older sister, Maricrice Droilet, told Granthshala News on Monday. “We assume he’s not that bad and hope he’ll have a change of heart.”


Maya disappeared from the family home on January 7, the same day she made an appointment with a divorce lawyer after at least a year of marital troubles.

Larry has maintained his innocence and in court papers accused his wife of “voluntarily” leaving the family, but she was arrested Tuesday in a raid at their home. He appeared in court on Thursday and pleaded not guilty to the charges of first-degree murder and illegal possession of an assault weapon.

Maya’s remains have yet to be found despite a nine-month search by her family, friends, officials and community members.

“The investigation into this case, while we know Larry Millett is responsible for the murder, is ongoing, and is bringing [Maya] San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephens said at a news conference last week that “a proper burial for her family is going home.”

Stephen pointed out that although the search area is still vast, officials believe Maya’s remains may be about 2.5 hours from the family home.

Larry Millette told authorities that on January 8, a day after Maya went missing, he spent more than 11 hours at Solana Beach with his 4-year-old son. He left his phone at home, but Stephan said Larry entered his home address into his car’s entertainment system 2.5 hours before he returned home.

Draulet said the search is now focused in areas where Larry and Maya travel to and from Chula Vista for about two to three hours.

“Now that the DA’s office has given us a slightly more specific area to search, we are all fired up,” she said on Monday. “It gave us hope that we would be able to bring him home.”

Last weekend, the family searched near Ocotillo Wells, a desert area about two hours northeast of Chula Vista.

Despite the absence of Maya’s remains, the Astrict Attorney is confident that his office can prosecute Larry for murder.

“California law, like the rest of the country, is very clear that we can file a murder charge even if we don’t have a body. In fact, the law is so clear that we can’t kill someone and get a profit by hiding the body. There’s a way we can’t find it,” Stephens said while announcing the allegations.

“There is a case law that we will use in this case, which makes it even more clear that a missing body is circumstantial evidence that dishonesty was committed and that it is a murder.”

Larry is currently being held without bond, but is due back in court for a bail hearing next month.

Superior Court Judge Marine D’Adezio signed a criminal protective order that would prevent Larry from contacting certain individuals if he is granted bail before trial.

“Mister Millet, you must not harass, strike, threaten, assault, pursue, pursue, tamper, destroy or cause damage to important or real property, disturb their peace, put them under surveillance or Blocking their movements,” D’Adezio told Milete. Individuals in the order, who were not publicly named.

Meanwhile, the couple’s three young children — ages 5, 10, and 11 — are currently safe with Larry’s parents, but Maya’s family is hoping they can spend time with them soon.

“We haven’t seen them yet. We’re hoping we can soon,” Drouillet said. “We know they are in good hands because they are with their grandparents.”
