Search for Naya Rivera Has Come to an EndNewser — Newser Editors
The search for actress Naya Rivera has come to an end, authorities say. Searchers found a body in California's Lake Piru on Monday, where the 33-year-old Glee star went missing five days ago, reports the Los Angeles Times.
"We are confident the body we found is that of Naya Rivera," Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said at a press conference Monday, per CBS.
Rivera went out on a boat ride with her 4-year-old son, but only the boy was on the boat when it was discovered. Authorities suspect Rivera went for a swim and drowned.
The body was found floating in the northeast part of the lake, reports the AP. The sheriff said the location of the body, clothing, and physical characteristics made officials confident that the body is that of Rivera, as did the fact that no other people were reported missing in the area.
Lake Piru is about an hour's drive from Los Angeles, and Rivera had boating experience.
