Naya Rivera Missing

Glee vet Naya Rivera is missing after her 4-year-old son was found alone aboard a boat in a California lake.

“This is considered to be a horrible accident,” Ventura County Sheriff’s Department officials told NBC Los Angeles.

On Wednesday, Rivera was reported missing following a trip to Lake Piru in Ventura County, California, with her son, Josey Dorsey. She reportedly rented a boat and the two were swimming in the water. When the boat wasn’t returned, staffers found it adrift in the lake with her son sleeping on board.

A search and rescue operation, which was suspended at nightfall, is set to resume Thursday morning. (UPDATE: Per the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, the search and rescue has transitioned to a recovery operation as of Thursday afternoon.)

Rivera shared a photo of her and Josey on Wednesday, with the caption, “Just the two of us.”

She also recurred on the YouTube dance series Step Up: High Water and was set to star in the show’s upcoming third season after it was revived by Starz.
