Larry Millete‘s wife Maya Millete is still missing. She gave birth to their first daughter in 2010, their second daughter in 2011 and their son in 2016.

On September 2, 2021, Larry filed in court a nine-page declaration explaining why he does not Maya’s Filipino parents Pablito Tabalanza and Noemi Tabalanza visiting their grandchildren. Larry and Maya live with their three children in Chula Vista, San Diego, California, United States while Pablito and Noemi live in Moreno Valley, California.

“Her father also does not speak English very well and has never shown any interest with bonding with our children,” Larry wrote in the declaration obtained by NBC San Diego.” Pablito even stated that he doesn’t care if our children ended up living in the streets in Tagalog.”

According to Larry, Pablito is a heavy chain smoker. Larry also has an accusation against Richard Drouaillat, the husband of Maya’s sister Maricris Drouaillat.


Maya and Larry’s daughters are ”very uncomfortable around Richard because he is a drunk and often violent and loud,” according to Larry. Both Richard and Maricris have been actively involved in the search for Maya since Maya went missing on January 7, 2021.

In the declaration, Larry claimed that Maya was suffering from depression. He still maintains that he has nothing to do with her disappearance.

On June 29, 2021, Pablito and Noemi  filed an amended petition and declaration in San Diego family court for visiting rights with their three grandchildren. A court hearing on the visitation request is now set for December 17, 2021.


Larry has a criminal record and he is a US Navy veteran. He was arrested after stabbing a boy, then 17, in Bay Terraces, San Diego on April 30, 1997.

In 1999, Larry enlisted in the U.S. Navy in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. He and Maya were both 18 years old when they got married in the same year.

From 2000 to 2005, Larry served in the U.S. Navy and had no disciplinary actions. When his U.S. Navy active service ended on August 27, 2005, his rank was Hospital Corpsman, Third Class (HM3) and on January 10, 2008, his U.S. Navy reserve obligation was terminated.
