A body has been found at the Southern California lake where former “Glee” actress Naya Rivera disappeared, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office (VCSO) announced in a tweet Monday.
The body, which has not been identified, was discovered Monday morning at Lake Piru.
“Recovery is in progress,” tweeted the VCSO.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s department has notified Rivera’s family and the medical examiner’s office of the body found in Lake Piru, Capt Eric Buschow said Monday morning.
“When you have a situation like this and it ends up being a recovery, it’s hard for everybody involved. I can’t even imagine what it’s like for the family,” Buschow said in a live interview with KTLA Monday morning. “Hopefully this provides some level of closure, whatever that means, for the family.”
He did not give confirmation that it is indeed Rivera’s body.
The body was found floating in the northeast area of the lake Monday morning.
Police authorities have been on a search for Naya Rivera since Wednesday.She had gone to the lake that afternoon and rented a pontoon boat with her 4-year-old son, according to authorities.
Naya’s son was later seen on the boat, but his mother was nowhere to be found. One life jacket was found on the boat and the boy was wearing another. Investigators found Naya’s purse and her identification, but no other clues on the boat.
