'Glee' Star Naya Rivera Missing After Boat Ride

Authorities said the search for the actor will resume at first light Thursday morning.

“Glee” star Naya Rivera is missing and feared drowned following a boat ride with her young son on a reservoir in California.

The actor’s 4-year-old son was discovered alone in the boat they had rented and taken out on Lake Piru, in the Los Padres National Forest, on Wednesday afternoon, reported CBS Los Angeles.

The mother-and-son had been swimming and Rivera never returned to the vessel, the boy reportedly told investigators.

Rivera, who played cheerleader Santana in the Fox show that aired 2009-2015, tweeted this picture of the pair together shortly before her disappearance:

Drones, dive teams and helicopters scoured the reservoir for the 33-year-old actor. Ventura County Sheriff’s Department suspended its search at 8 p.m. local time and said it would resume “at first light” on Thursday morning.
