Tahj Mowry Shares Beautiful, Heartbreaking & Regretful Message To His 'First Love' Naya Rivera + See Underwater Footage Of Search

​ ​ ​ ​

Tahj Mowry pours out his heart to his first love Naya Rivera, who is missing and presumed dead after boating with her young son. Get into his sincere and heartbreaking message inside…

Actor Tahj Mowry is going through it as rescue teams continue to search for missing “Glee” actress Naya Rivera.

As you know, rescue teams have been looking for Naya after she was reported missing around Lake Piru. As of now, authorities presume she’s dead and is searching to locate her body. Naya’s 4-year-old son was with her on Lake Piru, however, he was found alone, sleep on the boat in the middle of the lake. Visibility in Lake Piru is really difficult, so the Tulare County Sheriff's Office Dive Rescue Team is using a device that uses sonar scanning underwater to help locate her body.

Peep video from the search below:

"We grew up together. We became adults together. We experienced so many firsts together. You were my first experience with everything; love, intimacy, heartbreak. We broke each others hearts and then mended them back together…more than once. I will never not think of you. No woman has ever measured up what you gave me or how you made me feel," Tahj poured his heart out to Naya - his first love - in an intimate Instagram post.

Tahj and Naya go way back and share many firsts. They met on the set of “Smart Guy” in 1997, when Naya played the role of Tanya Kelly opposite Tahj's child prodigy TJ.

In her memoir “Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes and Growing Up," she shared she and Tahj were each other’s first kiss. The kicker? Their first kiss happened at a movie theater with their moms sitting in front of them. Her first red carpet was with Tahj at the NAACP Image Awards (in a white dress on the very day she got her period for the first time). Poor thing.

Naya & Tahj ended up breaking up for a superficial reason. In her book, she said he told her “he thought he needed to date someone more on his financial level.” They had a falling out over it, but ending up becoming friends again.

”I’ve never liked to admit it but I have never stopped loving you. A part of me always wished for the day where God would bring us back together to be what we dreamt we could have been,” Tahj wrote in the tribute to Naya posted on his Instagram.

Tahj –younger brother of Tia & Tamera Mowry - continued to pour his heart out to Naya, praying she’s found safe and sound.

”I pray deeply for the Rivera family and that God blankets them with strength, peace, and love right now. Mychal and Nickayla – you will always be like younger siblings to me and I love you dearly. I watched you two grow up into beautiful adults. George and Yolanda – whatever you need I am here for you. We are forever family and I love you.

“I ask everyone reading this to please lift up, along with the entire Rivera family, Ryan and Josey in prayer and to respect what they are going through during this time. I pray that God showers the entire family with strength and peace that only He can give,” he wrote.

”I still have faith. I still have hope. Let’s please all pray that she is found and brought home safely.’ The actor concluded: ‘Naya, I miss you deeply. I wish I got the chance to tell you that once more but I’m believing I will get that chance. I know deep down you’ve always known how I felt.”

Many fans have expressed how they wished he had told her how he felt about her before she went missing. In 2014, Naya married actor Ryan Dorsey. They welcomed a son - Josey - before getting a divorce in 2018. Before her marriage, she was engaged to rapper Big Season and was also romantically linked to her "Glee" co-star Mark Salling.

Everyone isn’t here for Tahj’s tribute:

Both Tia & Tamera also posted wishful thoughts of her being found via their IG pages:

We pray she's found alive.
