Authorities continue to search for "Glee" star Naya Rivera after her four-year-old son, Josey, was found alone in a rented boat.
They began searching for a "possible drowning victim" in the lake after another boater found the young boy alone in the boat. According to TheWrap, Rivera was swimming with her son when she went under and never resurfaced for unknown reasons.
According to the Ventura County sheriff’s department, Rivera rented the boat at approximately 1 p.m. PT on Wednesday. It was around 4 p.m. PT that her son was found alone. It is unknown when Rivera went missing.
According to TMZ, it was her son Josey who told police that Rivera had jumped in the water and not come back up. Her life jacket was reportedly still in the boat and Josey asleep when he was found. Rivera's vehicle was found in the parking lot with her purse inside.
