BREAKING: “Glee” actress missing after renting a boat with 4-year-old son in Lake Piru

“Glee” star Naya Rivera is missing and officials say she is being searched for at a Southern California lake.


LA Times reports officials are searching for actress Naya Rivera after her 4-year-old son was found alone on a boat she rented Wednesday afternoon, officials said.

Rivera rented the boat about 1 p.m. and had an afternoon of swimming with her son, who was the last to see her before she went missing, said Ventura County Sheriff’s Department Capt. Eric Buschow.

Buschow said the boy got back onto the boat after a swim but his mother did not follow. “We’re going on the belief that she did go in the water and we have not been able to locate her. So this may well be a case of drowning,” Buschow told reporters.

The 4-year-old was found sleeping on the boat by himself by other boaters in the lake.

“He’s in good health,” Bushow said of Rivera’s son. The boy was initially reported by authorities to be a 3-year-old girl. “The family is going through a very traumatic time right now.”

The search for the 33-year-old “Glee” actress is continuing and will draw more resources Thursday morning.
