'Glee' Star Naya Rivera is Missing, Police Search for 'Drowning Victim'
The 33-year-old rented the boat on Wednesday afternoon at Lake Piru, north-west of Los Angeles, the Ventura County Sheriff's office says. However, according to ABC-7, when the boat was overdue to be returned, staff found the boat with her son on board, but Rivera was missing.
A search and rescue operation was undertaken at Lake Piru, but the actress was not found. Search was suspended for the night, with plans to resume the search today.
A tweet from the Ventura Sheriff’s Department at 6.30pm PST (2.30am GMT) read: ‘Hapening [sic] now: Search for possible drowning victim at Lake Piru. @VCAirUnit. @fillmoresheriff on scene. SAR Dive Team and PIO on the way [sic].’
According to TMZ, Josey told authorities that his mother had jumped into the lake, but did not come back up. The child is now safe with family. Rivera’s car was found in a nearby parking lot, with her purse in the vehicle.
Her last instagram post was of her and her son, captioned "Just The Two Of Us"
We can only pray she is safely found and reunited with her son.
