A new search warrant was served at the California home of Maya Millete, 39, on Friday, four months after she went missing.
The Chula Vista Police Department served the warrant at Maya and Larry Millete’s home in the afternoon around 4:30pm.
Maya’s family attorney, Billy Little, claimed that a large group of officers went into the home, as well as several cadaver dogs.
A neighbor told Fox News that around 12 police cars and a van arrived at the residence at 5pm local time and were still there as of 6:45pm.
Maya Millete went missing on January 7 and she was reported missing three days later

CBS News 8 also reports that it appeared a vehicle on the property was being searched.
‘We’re trying to maintain the integrity of the investigation,’ said Lt. Frank Giaime, who didn’t want to say much about the search.
It’s not clear why a new search warrant was executed on Friday, though police were dressed in tactical gear.

The couple with their three kids. Maya’s family say they had been arguing frequently
Maya was last seen at her home on January 7, where she made an appointment with a divorce lawyer. She was reported missing three days later, on January 10.
A search of the home and vehicles was conducted that day, as well as the next. On January 12, Larry admitted that the two had been arguing prior to Maya’s disappearance.
She hasn’t been seen in the four months since then, though. Larry, who had been married to Maya for 21 years, stopped cooperating three weeks after she went missing and hired a lawyer.
A search warrant was served at the home for the first time on January 23, the first of 23 warrants the police have executed.
Maya Millete was reported missing on January 10 after seeking a divorce lawyer
According to ABC 10News, the Chula Vista police served a warrant at Larry’s relative’s home on April 1.
Meanwhile, volunteers continue to scour the region, looking for clues in Maya’s disappearance.
Police have conducted 56 interviews so far and reviewed at least 55 tips in relation to her disappearance.
Maya tried to anonymously seek advice on local divorce lawyers on Facebook hours before she mysteriously disappeared.
Family members revealed the couple’s marriage had been on the rocks and that Maya was preparing to file for divorce.
In April, it emerged that Maya had shared a post in a Facebook group for mothers on the same day she vanished claiming she was seeking advice on a local family law firm on behalf of ‘a friend.’
Larry has not been arrested, nor has anyone else, in relation to the mother-of-three’s disappearance
‘Asking for a friend – Has anyone used or have gone through the services of collaborative practice San Diego for divorce? Looking for insights? Positive/negative aspect?’ she wrote, Fox News reported.
The group’s moderator told the news station Maya likely claimed to be asking for a friend as a ‘desperate attempt to remain anonymous.’
She eventually made an appointment with divorce lawyer Marisa Nahale for the following week, but went missing before they could meet.
Maya’s older sister Maricris Drouaillet told Fox News her sibling had been considering leaving her husband over the last year.
‘I think she was ready in December, and then she finally decided to file that divorce that day,’ she said.

The family went camping not long before Maya vanished. Her relatives say she and Larry argued throughout and that it was clear their relationship was over
Maya’s brother-in-law previously told DailyMail.com that they went on a camping trip not long before she vanished and that she and Larry were arguing during it.
‘They argued a lot and it was a little bit uncomfortable. It was weird because Larry was acting different. He wasn’t acting like Larry.
‘He was acting different… They were done. The relationship was done. You could just tell,’ Richard Drouaillet said.
Maya’s family are convinced he is to blame for her vanishing. In the days beforehand, they say she told them: ‘If anything happens to me, it’s Larry.’
An anonymous source claimed to FOX News in April that Larry suspected his wife of having an affair, and that he offered to pay a hit man $20,000 to kill the man last summer.
The source said he was still talking about it in January, before Maya went missing, and that he seemed ‘pretty serious’ about it.
Maya’s family backed up the claim that Larry suspected she was having an affair.
One unnamed relative told FOX that he said of the apparent boyfriend ‘I want to do something to that fool.’
They did not confirm whether or not she was having an affair, or if Larry just suspected her of it.
