For the last 7 years the 13th of July has shattered our hearts beyond repair. There aren’t enough words to describe the pain we are feeling, we are truly heartbroken at the loss of @nayarivera . Naya, Cory loved you so so much. He cherished your friendship more than you will ever know. From the laughs you shared, to the strength you gave him when he needed it the most. Cory truly adored you. He was in awe of your incredible talent, the way you gave everything you had to each performance; the slap in the auditorium was one of his favourite stories to share. You once said Cory was like a member of your family; you will always be a part of ours. We’ll carry you in our hearts forever. We miss you. Friends reunited for eternity. We send all our love and strength to your beautiful boy, your family, friends and fans ????????????

Naya, who played Santana Lopez on the show, was reported missing last Wednesday after her four-year-old son Josey was found alone on a rented pontoon boat in the middle of Lake Piru in Southern California.

After days of searching, the 33-year-old’s body was recovered from the lake on Monday.

While answering questions by the media, police said they believe Naya and Josey both got caught in a current while swimming in the lake – and that she had enough energy to get her son back on the boat, but she “couldn’t save herself”.

They also confirmed Naya was not wearing a life jacket, but said an adult life jacket was found on the boat next to her son.
