“Glee” actress and former Big Sean fiancée Naya Rivera may have lost her life from a tragic boating accident. New reports claim California law enforcement believe she likely drowned after renting a boat with her four-year-old son.
Naya x Accident
Although details are still scarce, the latest reports suggest the search for Rivera might result in her body being found. An accident is ultimately cited as the possible cause of a drowning.
Actress Naya Rivera, known for her role on “Glee,” is believed to have drowned in “what appears to be a tragic accident” while boating with her son on a California lake, authorities said Thursday. Rivera was reported missing Wednesday, when her 4-year-old son was found on a pontoon boat by himself. Sergeant Kevin Donoghue said in a news conference Thursday that Rivera and her son rented a boat to take out on Lake Piru in Los Padres National Forest at approximately 1 p.m. local time. The rental was supposed to last for three hours — and when the pair had not returned by 4:30 p.m., workers went out to search for them, Donoghue said. (CBS News)
Local law enforcement spoke about the possibility of Rivera’s body never being discovered if she drowned. During a Thursday conference, Sgt. Kevin Donoghue of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office gave an update to media.
“It depends,” Donoghue replied when asked if Rivera’s body will be recovered if she did indeed drown. “If the body is entangled in something beneath the water, it may never come back up. We don’t know.” (Us Weekly)
Wait, There’s More
On Thursday, Rivera’s ex-fiancé Big Sean went to his social media channels with some low-key support. The rap star appeared to reference a tweet praying for Rivera’s safe return.
Big Sean, née Sean Michael Leonard Anderson, also liked a tweet from Los Angeles radio station Real 92.3 about praying for Rivera. Along with the tweet, the radio station shared a message that Rivera posted just days ago that reads, “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.”
Before You Go
According to reports, people searched for Naya as of Thursday morning and believed she may have possibly drowned. She went missing Wednesday night after going out with her son at a lake just outside of Los Angeles.
Rescuers will resume their search Thursday morning for “Glee” actress Naya Rivera after she went missing from a lake in Southern California. Rivera, 33, vanished from Lake Piru in Ventura County on Wednesday evening. The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said search efforts will resume “at first light” and called it a possible drowning. Rivera went to the lake Wednesday afternoon and rented a boat with her young child. Both were seen going out on the lake together, Sheriff’s Capt. Eric Buschow said at a news conference. (CNN)
