This morning, it was confirmed that Glee actress, Naya Rivera is officially missing after her 4-year-old son was found alone on a boat.

The thirty-three-year-old actress has been confirmed as missing, with officials saying she is presumed as dead.
And, to make this situation even worse, her 4-year-old son, Josey, was found alone at the scene of her disappearance.
And now, the chilling words Josey said to the police officers shortly after his mom’s disappearance have come to light.
The actress portrayed the role of the sharp-witted cheerleader, Santana Lopez.
And she went on to appear in most episodes across all of the 6 seasons.
In 2011, it was announced that the actress had signed a deal with Colombia Records to produce a solo album, and her debut single, “Sorry” featured the rapper, Big Sean, who she went on to have a brief romance with.
So instead, Rivera resorted back to her skills as an actress and went on to appear in a handful of different movies and TV series, including At The Devil’s Door and Devious Maids.
With her now ex-husband, Ryan Dorsey, Rivera had a son, Josey, in 2015, and he has been the apple of her eye ever since.
And she threw herself into motherhood, devoting most of her time to raising her son.
The post shows a tender moment between her and her son, alongside the caption, “Just the two of us.”
Her 1.9 million followers immediately praised the sweet mother-son moment, and it has only spurred the feeling of desperation further.
While out vacationing with Josey along California’s Lake Piru, Rivera went missing in circumstances that still remain unexplained.
But, 3 hours later, another boater raised the alarm after seeing the vessel drifting and Josey sleeping alone on board.
The child was reportedly unharmed.
And her lifejacket still onboard the boat.
The police have since confirmed that “this may well be a case of drowning.”
Divers and helicopters were scouring the reservoir until darkness fell, but no trace of Rivera was found – the search will be resumed at the first light.
“There’s a lot of challenges in a reservoir this size, at times with visibility,” Captain Eric Buschow, of the sheriff’s department, said.
“I don’t have details yet as to the depth of the area where the boat was found or what conditions they’re encountering out there.”
Twitter users have been expressing their shock over the incident, and many can’t even begin to imagine what her poor child must be going through.
And it is utterly horrifying.
According to TMZ, Rivera’s son had told the authorities that his mom had “jumped into the water but didn’t come back up.”
And we can only hope that Josey can be reunited with his mom soon.
Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Naya Rivera.
