Naya Rivera has been missing for just about 24 hours after boating with her four-year-old son Josey on Lake Piru in California. Josey was found safe on the boat but said his mom did not come back after a swim. She is presumed dead at this time. More than 80 people are currently involved in the search, which is utilizing helicopters, boats, ATV vehicles and ground personnel to try to locate Naya.
The Ventura County Sheriff has provided an update on the steps they have taken to try and find her in the vast lake area.
“Multiple teams of professional search & rescue personnel are actively searching Lake Piru for clues to the location of Naya Rivera. With over 80 people involved in the search right now, we are using helicopters, boats, ATV vehicles, and ground personnel to try and locate her,” the Sheriff’s department tweeted. The department added, “We have mutual aid for specialized dive teams en route from Los Angeles County, San Luis Obispo County, and Tulare County. We will keep you posted with any updates as we learn them. Our hearts and prayers go out the all of the family and friends of the Rivera family.”
Authorities have said the search for Naya Rivera is now a “recovery” mission.
A search and rescue operation was underway in Lake Piru late Wednesday after officials found a toddler inside a rental boat alone, without the woman who rented the boat, who later was identified as former 'Glee' Actress Nya Rivera/
When Ventura County sheriff’s deputies arrived at about 4:40 p.m., they found the girl unharmed, said Sheriff’s Department Cpt. Dean Worthy.
Staff at a boat rental company near the lake told officials that the little girl had been with a woman who rented the boat for three hours. When the boat was about 30 minutes late, staff went out in search of the boat.
“The woman was nowhere to be found,” Worthy said.
Helicopters, divers and drones have been deployed in search of the woman, Worthy said.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Sec. of State Mike Pompeo said that the U.S. would "certainly look at" banning Chinese social media apps including short-form video app TikTok over national security and privacy concerns.
"With respect to Chinese apps on people's cell phones, I can assure you the United States will get this one right too," Pompeo said in an interview on Monday's episode of Fox News' The Ingraham Angle. "I don't want to get out in front of the president, but it's something we're looking at."
Pompeo added that people should only download TikTok "if you want your private information in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party."
The news comes as TikTok increasingly looks to distance itself from its parent company Beijing-based ByteDance. Last week, TikTok, along with 58 other China-made apps, were banned from India over national security and privacy concerns. The ban came as a huge blow to TikTok as India was one of it fastest growing and most profitable markets. There have also been reports that Australia's government was looking at a ban.
The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to TikTok for comment.
Also on Monday evening, TikTok announced it was pulling out of Hong Kong after the city's government passed a controversial security law last week.
Reuters reported on Monday night that the social media giant is removing itself from Apple and Google's app stores for Hong Kong. "In light of recent events, we've decided to stop operations of the TikTok app in Hong Kong," a TikTok spokesperson told Reuters. The short-form video social network reportedly has 150,000 users in Hong Kong.
TikTok is the latest tech giant to announce that it had reevaluated its operations in Hong Kong following the passing of the territory's National Security Law, which some observers say will drastically alter Hong Kong's autonomy and curb speech.
Earlier on Monday, Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Google and Telegram all said they were suspending co-operation with Hong Kong's police in relation to requests for user information.

Usher released his self-directed "I Cry" video on the Fourth of July, hoping to spark the conversation of change.
The video includes black and white visuals and photography by Gordon Parks. With Usher facing the camera, various shots from Parks, including those of children crying and protestors holding signs against police brutality, pop up on the screen.
Usher spoke on the importance of his new record. "No matter how successful you are, you still have to understand that someone, somewhere, is still experiencing this unjust reality, and it became more vivid when we all had a moment to be home," he said. "I think the pandemic gave us an awakening that we needed, because we were able to bring all of those emotions. All of those emotions began to surface as a result of being able to look at what's going on in the world."
Proceeds from "I Cry" will be donated to LISC, the Local Initiatives Support Corporation, which looks to help underserved communities and communities of color across the nation.
