Terrible news reaching us from the US as Glee Star Naya Rivera, aged 33, is missing and presumed dead after her son was found alone on a boat on Lake Piru in California. The 4-year-old told cops that they were swimming together but she didn’t get back on board. Rivera’s car was still parked at the lake.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department in a statement said that a search for a presumed drowning victim started at around 1pm on Wednesday, with the child found inside the rented boat at 4pm – and at 8pm a body had not yet been located.
A search and rescue diving team, as well as a helicopter and a drone have been dispatched to assist in the search operation.
On Tuesday, Rivera shared a photo with her son with the caption, “just the two of us,” on Twitter.
