It’s been confirmed by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office that the body of ‘Glee’ star, 33-year old Naya Rivera, has been found. Naya’s body was found five days after she went missing while boating in California’s Lake Piru with her 4-year old son, Josey Dorsey.

Earlier this afternoon, the Ventura Sheriff Dept. Tweeted:

 

 

Hours later, a news conference was held after search crews found Naya’s body in the northeast corner of Lake Piru.

 

 

Reports reveal Naya and her son rented a boat around 1 p.m on the day she went missing and about three hours later, Josey was found alone and asleep by another boater.  At the time, officials confirmed ‘Josey was unharmed and wearing a life vest, while an adult life vest, Naya’s purse and identification were found on the boat.’

According to a statement made by the sheriff’s office, “The boy told investigators that he and his mother had been swimming and he got back into the boat but she didn’t.”  The following day, it was believed Naya had drowned.

Naya Rivera was a child actress and model, landing her first role at just 4-years old.

 

 

She played the character of Hillary Winston on ‘The Royal Family’ and in 2009, Naya got her big break when she landed the role of Santana Lopez on ‘Glee’ and in 2011, signed with Columbia Records.

 

 

In 2014, Naya began dating actor, Ryan Dorsey.  The two were married in Cabo San Lucas in July of 2014 and nearly four year later, divorced. Naya and Ryan share custody of their son, Josey.
