Naya Rivera has been declared missing, after authorities found her son alone on a boat in the middle of Lake Piru in Southern California on Wednesday.
According to TMZ, police initiated a search for the actress and her four-year-old son Josey after they failed to return a rental boat after the three hours she had paid for.
Naya’s son was later found sleeping on the boat wearing a life jacket, but his mother was nowhere to be found.
Law enforcement sources have claimed Josey told police his mother had jumped in the water, but didn’t come back up.
Wednesday’s search was suspended due to nightfall, but it resumed in the early hours of Thursday morning.
The Ventura County Sheriff Department tweeted a photo of the lake this morning, and wrote: “The search for Naya Rivera will continue this morning at Lake Piru.”
“The lake will be closed to the public while search operations continue. Dive teams from throughout the region will be assisting us through mutual aid.”
