In news that can only be described as shocking, actress Naya Rivera is missing and presumed dead after her 4-year-old son was discovered alone on a boat.
“Naya Rivera is missing on a Southern California lake after her toddler son was found alive, but alone on a boat … TMZ has confirmed.
Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies found the 4-year-old boy on the boat — presumably rented by Naya — shortly before 5 PM on Lake Piru, but Naya was not there. Law enforcement sources tell us her son, Josey Hollis Dorsey, told deptuies his mom had jumped in the water … but didn’t come back up.
Divers immediately started searching the lake, but so far there’s no sign of the “Glee” star. The search was suspended due to nightfall, but it’s expected to resume Thursday, shortly after sunrise.
We’re told Josey is okay, and is now with family members. Naya and the boy’s father, Ryan Dorsey, divorced in 2018 and share custody of Josey.”
The news comes not even a week after the 33-year-old took to Instagram to say:
“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.”
Just Tuesday (July 7), she posted a photo of herself and Josey.
