Naya Rivera's 'Glee' co-stars are being asked to refrain from trying to find the missing TV star on their own, simply because the situation is way too dangerous.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Department addressed the possibility that individuals including Naya's co-star Heather Morris, were considering heading to Piru Lake to try and help search for the missing actress.

The Sheriff's are asking that everyone leave the search and rescue operation to the professionals, and say the lake is a very dangerous spot.

"For those intent on searching for Naya Rivera on your own, 1. The lake is closed. 2. Temps are already in the 90’s. 3. The terrain around the lake is very steep and rugged. Our teams are well equipped and highly trained," a spokesperson for the Department tweeted.

They added, "We don’t want to have to rescue you."

The statement comes on the heels of Naya's friend and co-star Heather Morris pleading with officers to allow her and a 'small group' of friends to join the search for Rivera 'on foot.'

"My name is Heather Morris, I'm Nayas close friend and co-worker, and I'm trying to conduct an on foot search and rescue mission along with a small group of friends at Lake Piru," she tweeted the department.

Adding, "I understand your team is doing EVERYTHING in their power, but we are feeling helpless, powerless, and want to help in any way. I have left a message with the Department of Rescue and Air today, and I will call again tomorrow. Thank you."

Authorities Decline Offer From Naya's Friends To Join Search

The decline of offered help from outside people has sparked a heated debate on Twitter about whether or not officers should use the help being offered.

"What about heather morris? she is not a fan, but a long time friend and co-worker... please let her help with this," one person wrote.

But, another fan didn't agree and said bluntly, "STAY. OFF. THE. LAKE. let the professionals deal with this. you have zero clue what you’re doing and don’t have the right equipment. we’re all anxious and want her found but looking for her yourself will create more problems!!"

The Sheriff's Department also addressed an ongoing conspiracy theory that somehow Naya may have made it to a cabin surrounding the lake.

"In today’s search for Naya Rivera, cabins and outbuildings in the surrounding area will be checked once again, as well as the shoreline. This has been part of the ongoing search effort since her disappearance on Wednesday afternoon. Boat crews continue to scan the lake," they said.

As we reported, Naya Rivera has now been missing for five days, after she was last seen renting a boat on Lake Piru with her 4-year-old son.
