Naya Rivera: ‘Glee’ Star Missing and Presumed Dead After Boating Incident / VIDEO

*Actress Naya Rivera has gone missing after she and her 4-year-old son rented a boat for an outing on a Southern California lake. The boy was found alive, but alone on the boat, but Rivera is presumed dead.

A separate boater found Rivera’s son, Josey, in a pontoon on Lake Piru at about 4 p.m. local time — three hours after the actress rented the vessel, CBS2 Los Angeles reported, citing police statements.

Law enforcement sources say her son, Josey Hollis Dorsey, told deputies his mother had jumped in the water … but didn’t come back up.

Divers immediately started searching the lake, but so far there’s no sign of the “Glee” star. The search was suspended due to nightfall, but it’s expected to resume Thursday, shortly after sunrise.

Rivera’s life jacket was still in the boat and Josey was asleep when the boat was first found, reports TMZ. Josey is okay and is now with family members. Naya and the boy’s father, Ryan Dorsey, divorced in 2018 and share custody.

Rivera, 33, played Santana Lopez on the Fox drama “Glee” from 2009 to 2015.
