Actress and former “Glee” star Naya Rivera, 33-years-old, is missing after a swimming incident at Lake Piru in Ventura County, California.

According to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, the department began investigating a possible drowning victim at Lake Piru on Wednesday night. A dive team alongside the police investigation team were dispatched to the scene.

The Ventura County sheriff’s department later identified the missing person as Rivera that same night, and a search and rescue operation would resume on Thursday morning.

Local authorities said that the search began after Rivera’s 4-year-old son was found floating on a rented boat alone on Lake Piru. Staff at Lake Piru were concerned after the boat was overdue, and another boater soon found it with her child on board but was unable to find her. The child was reported unharmed, and he informed investigators that they were both swimming but she never returned to the boat.

After news broke out of Rivera’s disappearance, fans and former co-stars sent out their prayers in hopes to find the actress safe and sound. “Glee” co-stars like Harry Shum Jr. and Heather Morris shared their concerns, and some fans expressed outrage at the department’s lack of urgency.

This morning, the Ventura County sheriff’s department announced via Twitter that they are continuing the search for the missing actress. The story is currently developing.
