‘Glee’ Star Naya Rivera Reported Missing & Feared Drowned

Authorities are desperately searching a lake north of Los Angeles for former ‘Glee’ star Naya Rivera. She rented a boat on July 8, and hours later, only her four-year-old son was found in the vessel.

The boy “told investigators that he and his mother were swimming, but his mother never got back into the boat,” CBS Los Angeles also reported. Helicopters, drones and dive teams soon searched the lake for Naya.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department has also confirmed that they’ve been searching Lake Piru for Naya, but announced that their search and rescue operation will continue at “first light” on July 8. Earlier Wednesday night, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department had tweeted that it’s looking for a “possible drowning victim at Lake Piru.”

Naya famously played cheerleader Santana Lopez throughout Glee’s entire run between 2009-2015.
