    Thanks for this touching, sorrow-filled interview, @swedeheart.

    We can have no clear understanding of how investigations by LE are proceeding in this case, nor how they are communicating with and/or supporting the family, but I find it so very sad to watch Maya's sister as she answers a question regarding LE, and responds by saying

    "...Even with them, they haven't really helped us in our searches..."

    Does Maricris mean LE haven't been involved in the family's specific searches, or does she imply they are not searching for her actively at all? Surely this is not true, but perhaps their focus needs to be on finding and naming a suspect, and gathering enough credible evidence to warrant charges against the person/s, rather than using resources to find Maya.

    When asked is she has confidence all is being done to find Maya, Maricris says "she has hopes" they'll be able to find her.

    Heart-wrenching...

    I believe CVPD answered the "search" question last week. If they knew the location of MM -- dead or alive, they'd be there on the spot. LE stated they don't want to give the family or its team of volunteer searchers false leads by directing them to any area.

    The Chula Vista Police Department also stated “it would like to recognize the volunteer search efforts and the support from numerous community members assisting to locate May. We recognize one of the frustrating aspects of May's disappearance is that there is no specific region or location identified.”

    Maricris Drouaillet said we try to understand, but then again, we as a family, want an answer as soon as possible. Their deepest fear is that no new information will come to light.

    ETA: add extended interview with CVPD

    Extended interview: Capt. Eric Thunberg, CVPD investigations unit regarding Maya Millete case

    April 5, 2021



    Transcript:

    [..]

    one of the questions the family has is

    06:58

    can't you give them

    07:00


    a general area to search because as you

    07:03

    know they have lots of

    07:05

    volunteers who are willing to search

    07:07

    certainly i

    07:08

    understand you don't have a specific

    07:10

    area for them to search but don't you

    07:12

    have a general corridor

    07:14

    that you can assist the family in

    07:16

    helping them

    07:17

    where to search i will say that if we

    07:20

    knew if we knew of where to go

    07:24

    and had an idea of

    07:28

    where they could search that was

    07:30

    conducive that was consistent with what

    07:31

    we know or believe

    07:33

    or what we believe was travel the route

    07:36

    that was traveled

    07:37

    yeah we would share the information but

    07:40

    at this point we are still

    07:41

    working to determine exactly where

    07:44

    those areas may be and so we're

    07:48

    exhausting

    07:48

    all all aspects of

    07:53

    investigation as far as trying to

    07:54

    determine where that might be and to

    07:56

    nail it down

    07:57

    um a hundred percent and so absent

    08:00

    absent you know very specific

    08:02

    information that's the hard part is

    08:04

    we can give a general description um you

    08:07

    know of of where things might go but the

    08:08

    problem is

    08:09

    that's not it's not based on anything

    08:11

    other than a desire for people to do

    08:13

    something and a desire to

    08:14

    let them go out and and search and it

    08:16

    may not be accurate and that's part of

    08:18

    the problem is

    08:19

    we don't want to create a bunch of busy

    08:21

    work

    08:22

    and mobilize people when in fact it may

    08:25

    not be

    08:25

    accurate information and so we're going

    08:27

    to be very careful with sending out

    08:29

    folks you know or mobilizing folks or

    08:31

    giving people you know

    08:33

    information to help us if it's not

    08:35

    accurate that's not that's just not good

    08:37

    that's just not

    08:37

    it's not a good it's not a good practice

    08:39

    it's not a good habit it's not safe

    08:41

    for a number of reasons and so if and

    08:44

    when we have information that we can

    08:45

    provide that gives us

    08:47

    you know specific areas will we share it

    08:49

    of course we will

    08:50

    we would absolutely use the public's

    08:52

    help they're very organized

    08:54

    and the families group of friends we're

    08:56

    very appreciative of that and understand

    08:57

    that if we could in any way shape or

    08:59

    form give them something that was useful

    09:01

    we would but

    09:02

    my fear is that anything we give them at

    09:04

    this point

    09:06

    is not going to be based on anything but

    09:07

    conjecture um and so i know they have

    09:10

    tracked where she's been where she's

    09:11

    hiked and that they have looked for

    09:12

    areas that they have gone

    09:13

    we're still digging into that as much as

    09:15

    we can um

    09:16

    and still looking for evidence that will

    09:18

    help us narrow things down

    09:20

    but at this point we don't have anything

    09:21

    that is beyond conjecture and it and it

    09:24

    would be a shame to

    09:25

    send them out on something when when

    09:28

    again it's you know this is a

    09:30

    a broad area we're talking about and so

    09:33

    we don't have anything concrete to

    09:34

    pinpoint

    09:35

    it it's it's it it'd be it would be um

    09:38

    it might be pointless and we don't want

    09:39

    to we don't want to send them out

    09:40

    needlessly

    09:41

    The response to Maya's disappearance has been nothing short of amazing. The efforts of the volunteers and the relentless pursuit by her family is a testimony to the love so many feel, or have come to feel for May.

    As sad as this situation is, it is heartwarming to see strangers care so much and spend their free time searching.

    I have no doubt May will be found. Why? Because the Perp(s) are dumb. Lot's of video evidence, and whatever else we don't know about. There were some amateur attempts to cover their tracks, but it won't be good enough.

    Justice is coming. I hope their nights are sleepless.

    I found this ABC10 newsreport from Jan 21-- a couple of days before CVPD searched Maya's residence under a warrant search.

    I think investigators already had a good profile on Larry before they collected evidence from the home:

    Millete's car is still at her Chula Vista home. There has been no activity on her bank statements and her phone goes straight to voicemail.

    ABC 10News spoke to her husband on Thursday. He said he spent hours Wednesday night with detectives from Chula Vista Police trying to find his wife. He tells ABC 10News he is grateful for all of the search efforts.

    he noticed a hole in the door.. or a patched hole? If it was a fresh hole, why not peer and see if she was in there.

    One bit of alleged evidence being presented online that has me hung up, if he fired six shots and killed her, wouldn’t there be some evidence in the house?
    How do you shoot someone in a house and not leave blood evidence behind, even if you clean up before the search warrant?

    From your link:

    ...Police are looking at surveillance video from (LM's Uncle Ricky and Aunt Cathy's) (Encanto) neighborhood from the evening of January 7th, when Maya Miliete went missing and when 6 loud bangs rang out at about 10:00 pm...


    ETA: Encanto is a hilly urban neighborhood located in the southeastern part of San Diego, California.

    ETA: Encanto is north of National City (which is north of Chula Vista) in east SD county.

    Also where was the hole exactly? Was the hole punched because someone wanted to look into the room. Or was it made to manipulate the doorhandle on the other side, so one could enter.

    Either way ''someone'' totally lost control that night for them to punch a hole into that door.

    Now that we know he likely had help, Maya could be anywhere. :(

    I still find it interesting that, while mentioning them having hiked near the Colorado River and Grand Canyon, he follows that statement up with "it takes about a day to get there." Was that to make sure everyone knew he couldn't have possibly driven that far with her body? LM might not have had the time to do that, but his "helpers" certainly might have.

    And I imagine Maricris is at her wit's end, emotionally and physically, searching and searching for her sister day in and day out. We have seen it so many times, victims' families becoming disheartened and thinking LE is not working hard enough. I can't imagine that pain. But I do have faith that LE is doing exactly what needs to be done to bring justice to May's family. I imagine if we have grown to care about Maya as much as we have here, that there are more than enough officers/detectives working her case that have, as well. It won't be long now, Maricris.

    I just hope that LE finds her, instead of family or friends while out on a search party. I just can’t imagine the pain of finding a loved one like that.

    Interesting theory. If he did have assistance from relatives, then the possibilities of disposal would be anywhere across state line or across the border even. I wonder if they confiscated Uncle Ricky's big white truck. News Video shows a big white f350 parked in the driveway.

    The possibility of accomplices personally gives me hope that a confession will eventually happen and that she will be found. The more links in a chain, the more likely one will break with enough pressure... but that's just my opinion

    Though I cant imagine what the family is going through, with no answers or leads, I'm confident LE is doing their best in the investigation. Doing what needs to be done in building a solid case. It would be devastating if they investigation was bungled, resulting in no prosecution.

    Being tight lipped with leads and evidence is way harder now than say back in the 90's (OJ era), when there was barely internet and social media. Nowadays, somebody can just tweet info or post a video , then bam, thousands of people viewed it an instant. My, what a time/era we live in..
