Naya Rivera Missing

Posted all over social media and circulating on the internet, the disappearance of Naya Rivera has been a mystery to many. Glee star was last seen with her four-year-old son, Josey Hollis Dorsey, getting onto a rented boat on Lake Piru in Ventura County, California. About three hours after the actress and her son got onto the boat, another passing boater discovered the little boy asleep on the boat and Rivera nowhere in sight. Over 80 people are involved in the search to find any clues or the body of Rivera but it is believed that she may have drowned.

Lots of celebrities and fans have been tweeting out with prayers and hope that the beloved actress is still alive. Demi Lovato tweeted out, “I don’t tweet often but sometimes my tweets come true, so together let’s manifest on Twitter that Naya will be found safe and sound!!” Lovato tweeted. “Come on y’all! Let’s put this energy out there: they will find her healthy and alive!!” Although it has now the third day of the search and no answers have been found, it is important to stay positive and hopeful. Death and heartbreak is no stranger to the Glee cast as more than just one of Rivera’s co-stars have passed away over the years. But it has been made very clear by Rivera’s loved ones, friends and fans that she was so much more than just an acclaimed actress, but a mother, friend and daughter and to not give up on her because her son needs her.

Many wonder what could have prompted this disappearance and if it was on purpose or just an accident. Some are looking towards her former husband, Ryan Dorsey that she had serious issues with, ultimately leading to their divorce. In November of 2017, she was arrested for supposed domestic battery against Dorsey and getting physical and “out of control” during an argument.

For now, the search is being held but after talking to Rivera’s son, there is no indication that Rivera made it to shore and so she is presumed to be dead as of Thursday. The lake she disappeared at has low visibility and has an abundance of vegetation making it more difficult to search for clues or signs of her. But currently, there are professionally trained divers, helicopters, boats, and drones assisting the search party in hopes to find Naya Rivera.
