On July 8, Rivera was reported missing by the Ventura Police Department on the boat owned by Rivera, a 4-year-old son on an afternoon trip to the lake.
The next day, the authorities announced that the actress had been presumed dead, revealing that she had transferred her quest for a “recovery mission” to find a star from 33 years.
“This afternoon at Lake Piru, divers are beginning their search for Naya Rivera,” tweeted the department of sheriff county Ventura on Sunday afternoon.
Capt. Eric Buschow shared more detail on an inquiry by Glee, including how Rivera ‘s son participated in the investigation, what police suspected to have happened, and more.
“There is no suggestion that this is an assault or a crime,” Buschow observed. “It’s not a foul act that is abducted or murdered. “Nothing can say it’s also a suicide.”

Buschow said he hoped that an autopsy will provide some answers once they find the actress’ body. “She’s finding … she can provide clarification on what has happened, depending on the autopsy findings,” he said. “It was, indeed, like a horrible mistake.”
According to Buschow, what law enforcement officials think is that Rivera “headed to the lake north.”
“She’s never been to the south of the lake, we know from tracking cameras,” he says. “The boat never returned to the south, so the emphasis was on the lake’s north side and northeast.”
He said the leased boat Rivera was “discovered to the north of the lake. “His son has been sitting alone on it.
“There were not that many people on the lake that day. They were all on the north side of the lake everywhere she was seen. We just need to know that all the signs were drowned on the lake at this point, “he says. “She’s in the water and we still assume that all the signs are.”
Buschow said that the Glee star was seen in waters for the last time and that she and her four-year-old son were both swimming together.
Buschow said, adding that Josey helped out with his situation, “He was asleep on the plane, wrapped in a towel.” “Children of this age would always be critical for information to provide, and he was capable of providing researchers with information which was very helpful.”
Buschow promised that Rivera ‘s search will continue, but some resources will be “scaled down.” “sea scan sonar, dogs and divers,” as well as the “ROV,” a remotely controlled vehicle, were amongst these resources.
“The search is going to continue in some way and as we are moving forward it could be restricted to only a couple of crews of the boat flying over by the helicopter, that kind of thing.
Buschow said his team “found something interesting and is researching it at the moment. Yet what the authorities discovered did not explain.
While the police searched the 33-year-old star, Buschow said how devoted fans would help.
It is an unbelievably difficult time for them if you meet them, touch them, and support them.
He knows that others want to go to the beach, but he does not recommend it.
“First of all, the lake is closed to the public, with the warmth and humidity, while driving up there, they know it’s not for those who are untrained and unfamiliar with the place.
