Rivera went missing last Wednesday evening, after a boating trip with her son, Josey Dorsey. When Josey was found alone on the pontoon boat Rivera had rented, a search began and has continued over the past five days. The boy told investigators that Rivera had never gotten back into the boat after they'd been in the water together.
Over the weekend, Rivera's ex-husband, Ryan Dorsey, visited the lake with members of the actress's family. Dorsey has not yet publicly commented on Rivera's disappearance.
Update 7/13, 5:27 p.m.: The Ventura County Sheriff's Department confirmed in a press conference that Naya Rivera's body was recovered on Monday morning and said no foul play was suspected.
