A California woman who has been missing since January allegedly told her family shortly before she disappeared that if anything happened to her, her husband would be to blame.

“If anything happened to me, it would be Larry,” Maya Millete reportedly told a family member, according to Fox News.

Maya Millete, a mother of three, was married to Larry Millete and was last seen Jan. 7, Fox News reported. On a camping trip earlier that week, Millete made the comment to a family member, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to Fox News. That was also the same day she scheduled an appointment with a divorce attorney for the following week.

Maya’s sister Maricris and her husband Richard Drouaillet noticed that Maya and Larry had marital troubles for quite some time, according to Fox News.

Maricris spoke to NBC7 about the number of arguments between the couple on the camping trip.

“We felt sometimes uncomfortable about it, too,” she told the news outlet. “But you know, we were just praying and hoping they would be able to work it out. We didn’t see this coming, you know, after that.”

Drouaillet claimed that her husband Larry frequently contacted his wife’s family to try to help in resolving their issues.

“He was more of an aggressor, trying to get us involved,” Drouaillet told Fox News. “He was trying to get us on his side, when we felt like it was a lot of lies that he was telling us.”

Some of Maya’s family members also told Fox News they’re reluctant to speak about Maya’s disappearance because they are afraid of her husband, Larry.

The Chula Vista police and detectives have been working the case since her disappearance, Chula Vista Police Capt. Eric Thunberg told Fox 5 San Diego.

“This is not a cold case,” Thunberg said. “We have an investigator and a team of investigators that we call upon when necessary. That detective has been working this pretty much full-time since the get-go.”

“We certainly have people who remain crucial witnesses to her disappearance. We are in frequent communication with our regional partners about this case and are working to identify evidence, locate it, analyze it and follow where it leads,” Chula Vista Police Department spokesperson Eric Thunberg told Fox News on Sunday.
