They want to find her.
“We feel so helpless and also so desperate for answers,” Millete’s sister, Maricris Drouaillet, told NBC 7 on Thursday.
Drouaillet said detectives had told her that her sister’s husband, Larry Millete, had retained a lawyer and was no longer cooperating with the investigation.
Police have never named Larry Millete a suspect in the disappearance of his wife.
Drouaillet told NBC 7 Larry Millete was the last person to see her sister.
In recent weeks, she said he had been distancing himself from his wife’s side of the family.
“We can’t imagine him doing anything to our sister,” Drouaillet said.
She said the situation has been hard on everyone.
The family has plastered posters of the missing mother all over Chula Vista.
Searches continue on the hills near her home, near Mt. San Miguel Park.
Meanwhile, earlier this week, hikers found human remains on a trail in Santee. This prompted many questions to Chula Vista police and the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department about the identity of those remains and if they were those of Millete.
Both agencies said the have no reason to believe the remains are Millete’s.
The CVPD’s investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on Millete’s whereabouts can reach out to detectives at (619) 691-5139 or Crime Stoppers at (888)580-8477. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
