Unsettling news alert to wakeup to. Glee alum Naya Rivera, 33 was last seen with her 4 year old son Josey after renting a pontoon boat for the two of them on Lake Piru in Ventura, California. An alert was sent out when the boat didn’t make it back. Josey Dorseywas found alone, sleeping and unharmed. Apparently he told authorities that his mom, “went in the water but kept swimming and didn’t come back.”
A search and rescue mission began on Wednesday afternoon but was called off at night. It was set to resume this morning. According to a tweet from the Ventura County sheriff’s office dive teams from the region are assisting through mutual aid.
Rivera, who has been acting since she was a child is best known for her role as Santana Lopez on Glee. She received several nominations and accolades for her role.She also released a song in 2013 called, “Sorry” with one time fiance Big Sean. After the Big Sean split Rivera then began dating fellow actor Ryan Dorsey, whom she had previously dated four years earlier. They were married in July 2014 (coincidently on the original date set for her wedding to Big Sean.) In November 2016, Rivera filed for divorce after two years of marriage from Dorsey. In late November 2017, Rivera was arrested and charged in West Virginia (where Dorsey is from originally) with misdemeanor domestic battery against Dorsey after she allegedly hit him in the head and face during an altercation over Josey.
