Naya Rivera’s four-year-old son told cops, ‘mum jumped into lake and didn’t come back up’
The Sun
Glee actress Naya Rivera's son said his mum "jumped into the water but didn't come back up" in haunting words to cops as they searched for her.
The 33-year-old is feared dead after going missing on a lake - with her four-year-old son Josey found asleep and alone on a rented boat.
Authorities found the little boy shortly before 5pm on Wednesday at Lake Piru, Southern California, with sources telling TMZ Josey said that his mother had "jumped into the water but didn't come back up".
Divers and helicopters immediately started searching the lake but so far there has been no sign of the star.
Naya's life jacket was reportedly still in the boat and Josey was asleep when the vessel was first found.
Josey is now safe with family members. The boy's father is Ryan Dorsey - who Naya divorced in 2018 and stars in the hit crime drama Ray Donovan.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department began searching for a presumed drowning victim after responding to a report of a boy left alone on a boat at around 4.48pm, they said in a press release.
They later tweeted: "The missing person at Lake Puru has been identified as Naya Rivera, 33, of Los Angeles. SAR operation will continue at first light."
Divers searched the lake until nightfall, but were unable to find the actress, who 113 episodes of the hit musical series from 2009 to 2015.
The search is expected to resume after sunrise in the US today.
Distraught fans tweeted for the Sheriff's department to keep looking for Naya.
"Please don’t stop looking for her I beg you," pleaded one user while another said: "Y’all need to be out on boats with flashlights!"

    It’s so sad but why did she not wear a life jacket , this kid is traumatized by his mother carelessness behavior which cost her life . Trying not to be harsh right now .. as a mother she should have not went back in water without her vest l I don’t care if vest is not cute enough . Horrible tragedy .

    Here we have two different reports. The boy said she “jumped in and didn’t come back up “ in this report....and since her body has now been found, they say the boy said “she boosted him up from behind into boat and he then saw her disappear? Wow....Which is the correct statement?

    To everyone talking about how they suspiciously said, "daughter" instead of "son" : The young boy has pretty long hair so I wouldn't blame them either. At first sight, I would have thought it was a girl too.

  • Hermogeon

    I feel like it was a suicide. All the stuff they brought in the car before renting a boat.... how her son had a life jacket on and 'jumped' in the water... you don't jump if you're about to get your kid in the water... it just doesn't seem like an accident to me

  • Pat Allsopp

    The obvious question is .Why wasn't Naya , wearing her Life Jacket .Which could've saved her life. Isn't it Mandatory practice ,to wear one at all times .?? And why would she take her child .,Into such Murky water ? Thank God ,he was found safe. My Prayer's are with him ,and the Family. For their sad loss.. So many unanswered questions.

    I'm not coming up with any conspiracy theories, but it does seem like people are being quick to jump on others who think there might be more to this. Idk about you guys, but from the get go I've had a gut wrenching feeling that it just doesn't all add up. First off, I think all the details of this case are important, because without them being noticed she may never be found. Second, so we're just supposed to full heartedly believe this officer even though he doesn't know the gender of the child he interviewed? I know finding her is the most important thing, but how can you really feel like they even care when they dont have their facts straight? Not professional at all. Third, I read one statement that said her wallet was left in her car and another that said it was left in the boat with her life jacket ??? Also where is the huge bag she was carrying in the video? She didn't go swimming with it, and it didn't just disappear. So ? Fourth, for all anyone knows she could've been swimming and gotten snatched up while her son was napping, last he saw her could have been in the water even in that case. If he saw her get taken under by the water, wouldn't he have heard and seen her struggle? He would have had more to say, personally I don't believe he saw what happened to his mommy. Fifth, did anyone else notice how fast they were to assume she was dead? Just seemed really quick to me, doesn't make sense.
