Maya Millete disappeared four months ago today.

CHULA VISTA, Calif. — Chula Vista police executed a search warrant Friday evening at the Chula Vista home of Larry Millete, husband of missing mother Maya Millete. 

Police appeared to be searching a vehicle on the property and a police dog was seen entering the home as well. 

"We're trying to maintain the integrity of the investigation," Lt. Frank Giaime said, when pressed about any specific details of the search warrant.  

Detectives arrived with the investigative court order in hand at the Millete at about 4:30 p.m., according to the Chula Vista Police Department.

CVPD spokesman Lt. Frank Giaime declined to disclose what prompted the new search of the woman's residence in the 2400 block of Paseo Los Gatos, near Mount San Miguel Park in the eastern reaches of the South Bay city.

Neighbors tell News 8 that police arrived at the Millete home dressed in full tactical gear. The garage was closed off at 6:17 p.m. 

According to News 8 investigative producer David Gotfredson, who's on the scene, all three children are accounted for. 

The first search warrant was issued Jan. 23.  

On Tuesday, Chula Vista Police released their bi-weekly update on the search for missing mother, Maya Millete.

The department assured the community that law enforcement officers working the case remain as dedicated now as they were on the first day of the missing person report.

In April, Chula Vista Police Department announced the partnership of a multi-agency group including the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, FBI, NCIS. The department says the primary goal is, “bringing May home to her family or bringing justice to May’s family regarding her disappearance. This law enforcement partnership continues to work closely together and is in constant communication regarding Maya’s disappearance.”

Maya Millete, 39, worked in early 2020 as a civilian contract specialist for the Navy’s Southwest Regional Maintenance Center (SWRMC).  In June of 2020, she transferred to the Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC), formerly SPAWAR, where she also worked as a contract specialist.
