R.I.P.: Police Confirm Body Found In Lake Piru Is Naya Rivera

​ ​ ​ ​

Ventura County Sheriff's Office confirm the body found in Lake Piru this morning is actress Naya Rivera. More details inside…

Sadly, it has been confirmed the body found in Lake Piru today is actress Naya Rivera, according to the Ventura Country Sheriff’s Office.

After announcing a body had been found in the lake earlier today, Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub spoke during a press conference to share details about their discovery of the body and to share more details about the day Naya disappeared.



According to the police, Naya’s body was found floating in the northeast area of Lake Piru and that it looked as though it had been in water for several days. Police are confident she didn’t commit suicide and that no foul play was involved.

"We are confident the body we found is that of Naya Rivera," Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said, adding "there is no indication of foul play or that this was a suicide."

Naya’s body has been taken to the Ventura County Coroner's Office where it will be identified through dental records.

Officer Ayub said Naya’s 4-year-old son, Josey, told them that he and his mother went swimming in the lake. The child told police the “Glee” actress helped him on the boat, but when he looked back, she disappeared. The 33-year-old actress went missing on July 8th. Her son was found asleep alone on a rented pontoon boat on California’s Lake Piru. Search teams had been searching for the “Glee” star since her disappearance five days ago.

Police said they have been in contact with Naya’s family and that they have visited the lake every day.

Peep the press conference below:

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

Actor Tahj Mowry poured his heart out to Naya, calling her his first love, as police continued their search for her body over the weekend. Many fans have expressed how they wished he had told her how he felt about her before she went missing. You can read his heartbreaking letter HERE.

In 2014, Naya married actor Ryan Dorsey. They welcomed a son - Josey - before getting a divorce in 2018. Before she married the "Pitch" star, Naya was engaged to rapper Big Sean and was also romantically linked to her "Glee" co-star Mark Salling.

Our hearts ache for her young son, who will never see his mother again. Our hearts are with Naya's family, friends and fans during this tragic time.
