Body found in search for missing “Glee” star Naya Rivera
The discovery came amid an extensive search for the missing “Glee” star. Rivera went missing July 8 after going on a boat ride in the lake with her 4-year-old son. She disappeared while swimming in the reservoir northwest of Los Angeles, sheriff’s officials said. Her son was found asleep on a pontoon boat that had been rented some three hours earlier.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department said at an afternoon news conference Monday that based on where the body was discovered, and the physical characteristics of the body, that it was determined to be Rivera.
No life jacket was discovered with the remains, however an adult-sized life jacket was discovered on-board the pontoon.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department said an autopsy will be performed to positively identify the actress as well as determine the cause of death.
The body appeared to have been in the water for several days, officials said. Source
