'Glee' Star Naya Rivera Is Missing And Declared Dead
Since yesterday, the media has been following the story of the disappearance of a 33-year-old actress of the series "Glee" Naya Rivera. In the late afternoon of July 8, she rented a boat to take her four-year-old son, Josey, for a walk on lake Piru, southwest of Los Angeles. Sometime later, the boy was found lying alone in the boat.
On the evening of July 8 and the afternoon of the 9th, rescuers tried to find Rivera, while it became clearer by the hour that she was unlikely to have survived. Soon it became known that the actress was recognized as dead, CNN writes about this, referring to to the County Sheriff. According to his version, the girl drowned. At the same time, the Sheriff does not give any guarantees that the body of the actress will eventually be found.
It is still not clear exactly what happened to the star of the series "Glee." After her boat's lease expired, rescuers found the boat in the middle of the lake with Josie sleeping inside. The boy, who was wearing a life jacket, was able to explain that he and his mother wanted to swim — she even jumped into the water but did not return after that. At the same time, a life jacket designed for an adult remained in the boat. Whether it belonged to Rivera or was a spare is also unknown.
According to media reports, four-year-old Josi was not injured; his health is not in danger. After the incident, it was taken by Ryan Darcy, Naya Rivera's ex-husband, whom she divorced in 2018 (the marriage lasted four years). The actress's entourage, reports People, knows nothing about the reasons for her disappearance and refutes the version of suicide that arose. "She was happy and worked hard," an anonymous source was quoted as saying.
Lake Piru is considered quite dangerous — it is deep (about 48 meters), cold and windy. The case when a person drowns in this reservoir is not the first.
