Glee actress, Naya Rivera went missing on Wednesday after an afternoon boating trip with her son Josey Hollis Dorsey out on Lake Piru in Ventura County, California.
Helicopters, drones, and dive teams have been deployed to help find Naya Rivera, hopefully alive, while some of those closest to her plead for her safe return.
According to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, Rivera rented a pontoon boat at about 1 p.m. for herself and her 4-year-old son to take out onto Lake Piru, which is located about 50 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.
About three hours later, another boater found her child sleeping in the boat by himself. The boater notified officials, who immediately began a search for Rivera with the use of helicopters, drones and dive teams.
The child was said to be unharmed and told investigators that he and his mother were swimming, but his mother never got back into the boat.
It was not immediately clear how the child got back into the boat.
“There’s a lot of challenges in a reservoir this size, at times with visibility,” sheriff’s Capt. Eric Buschow said. “I don’t have details yet as to the depth of the area where the boat was found or what conditions they’re encountering out there.”
