Orange County Sheriff John Mina has stated that 60 detectives from the agency’s Criminal Investigations Division are working tirelessly on this unfortunate situation. 

“We are employing anyone with any information about Miya’s whereabouts to please come forward,” said Mina in a press conference. “Miya is still missing. Her disappearance is suspicious and our detectives and the family members obviously suspect foul play.”  

Armando Caballero, a 27-year-old who worked as a maintenance employee at the apartment complex where Marcano resided, was named a person of interest. According to authorities, Caballero made it known he had a romantic interest in Marcano. 

Additionally, he had a key fob to access the apartments and happened to use it at her unit. 

However, on Sept. 27, the 27-year-old was found dead in his apartment because he apparently killed himself, according to ABC News.
