Ventura Co. Sheriff Reveals Body Recovered From Lake Piru, Other Reports State It Is Naya Rivera

​ ​ ​ ​

A body has been found at the Southern California lake where former "Glee" actress Naya Rivera disappeared five days ago. TMZ reports the body is Naya Rivera's. More inside...

Naya Rivera went missing on July 8th. Her 4-year-old son – Josey – was found asleep alone on a rented pontoon boat on California’s Lake Piru. Search teams have been searching for the “Glee” star since her disappearance.

Visibility in Lake Piru is quite low, so the Tulare County Sheriff's Office Dive Rescue Team has been using a device that uses sonar scanning underwater to help locate her body. Today, the search team discovered a body:

"A body has been found at Lake Piru this morning. The recovery is in progress," VSCO tweeted.

While officials have not publicly confirmed anything further, they are set to give a press conference today at 2pm PST/5pm EST at the lake.

TMZ reports the body found is of 33-year-old Naya Rivera, according to their own police sources:

Naya Rivera's body has been recovered from Lake Piru ... TMZ has learned. Ventura County officials said Monday that a body had been found at the lake, and our law enforcement sources have confirmed it is, in fact, her. A press conference sharing the news publicly is forthcoming.

Naya's son was found unharmed and the 4-year-old told investigators that he and his mother were swimming. However, his mother never got back into the boat. According to police, it was just Naya and her son on the rented boat.

It's still not clear how the child got back into the boat. The little boy had on a life jacket while another life jacket was found on the boat. Investigators found Naya's purse, wallet, and some food on the boat. Naya was presumed dead when the search began.

Over the weekend, actor Tahj Mowry poured his heart out to Naya, calling her his first love. You can read his heartbreaking letter HERE.

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 Sean and was also romantically linked to her "Glee" co-star Mark Salling.

Over the weekend, her family - including her ex-husband Ryan Dorsey - understandably and heartbreakingly stayed at the docks praying and hoping for her return:

 

Naya's body was found on the same day her "Glee"co-star Cory Monteith was found dead in 2013. He died from a drug overdose. Also, Ryan Dorsey's birthday is in a few days on July 19th.

Our hearts are with Naya's family, friends and fans during this tragic time.
