Naya Rivera: Officials Believe She’s Dead, Still Searching For Body

By Ryan Naumann

Naya Rivera is presumed to be dead by officials who have been searching for the actress since last night.

According to reports, authorities now believe Naya has drowned and the search for her has changed from a rescue to a recovery mission. Officials say Naya’s boat was found in an area where there was only 5 to 9 inches of visibility. They said Lake Piru is filled with trees and debris on the bottom.

Officials say it takes 7 to 10 days for a body to rise to the surface and be found.

As The Blast previously reported, on Wednesday, the 33-year-old actress took a trip out to the lake with her son. The two rented a pontoon boat around 1 p.m. There were no other guests with the two.

Three hours later, another boater came upon Naya’s boat and found her son sleeping by himself. The boater notified officials and a search was launched immediately. The search was suspended by nightfall but has resumed this morning. Officials are no longer believe they can find Naya alive.

The lake has rules for swimming only in designated sandy beach areas. A L.A Times article entitled, “Lake Piru’s Tragic Toll” detailed the many drownings that have taken place at the Ventura County lake.


Investigators found Naya’s car still parked in the parking lot with her purse inside. The last social media post made by Naya was a photo of her kissing her son captioned, “just the two of us.”

Naya’s ex-fiancé, Big Sean, showed his support for the search by liking a series of tweets about the “Glee” star.

The rapper liked a tweet reading, “Praying they find Naya Rivera. She wrote this 6 days ago” which included a screenshot of a tweet she wrote last week. The tweet read, “No matter the year, circumstance, or strifes everyday you’re alive is a blessing. make the most of today and every day you are given. tomorrow is not promised.”
