Body Found in Lake Piru Where Famous "Glee" Actress Went Missing

Ventura County Sheriff's Office found a body floating in Lake Piru Monday, after a six-day search for the missing "Glee" actress Naya Rivera.

She was presumed to have drowned after she disappeared from a rented boat at the lake last Wednesday afternoon. She had rented the boat and took her 4-year-old son out for a day on the lake.

Hours after she left the dock other boaters found the child alone on the boat with Rivera's purse, wallet, and life jacket. The child told investigators he saw his mother jump in the water but she did not come up.

Sheriff Capt. Eric Buschow said, "The body was found floating in the northeastern area of the lake, which is where we believed all along that she had gone in the water,".

The body found has mot yet been identified.

According to DailyMail

A body has been recovered in the search for missing Glee actress Naya Rivera who vanished on a California lake and was feared to have drowned six days ago.

Authorities are yet to formally confirm that the body is that of the 33-year-old.

They announced the grim discovery on Twitter, saying: 'A body has been found at Lake Piru this morning.

'The recovery is in progress.'

The actress's family rushed to the lake on Monday morning and some of her Glee castmates, including Heather Morris, were also there.

They held hands on the shore while waiting for more information from the star's family and from the authorities.

The body was found on the seventh anniversary of Naya's former co-star Corey Monteith's death.

Rivera vanished on Wednesday on Lake Piru after taking a pontoon boat out on the water with her four-year-old son Josey.

A Ventura police officer told it was 'gut-wrenching' and 'devastating' to see the family's grief.

Ventura Sheriff's Department Sergeant Marta Bugarin said the county's search and rescue team found the body floating in Lake Piru at about 9.10am on Monday.
