It’s with a heavy heart that I confirm Naya Rivera has passed away.

The 33-year-old “Glee” star went missing on Wednesday after she went to Lake Piru with her 4-year-old son, Josey.

She rented a boat around 1 p..m. and about three hours later another boater discovered her son, Josey, alone in the boat.

Josey said he and his mother went swimming, but she never got back in the boat. 

Officials immediately began to search for Naya Rivera using helicopters, drones and dive teams.

The search went on for five days before a body was recovered.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department held a press conference to confirmed the body was indeed Naya Rivera.

This is so incredibly sad. My prayers go out to Naya’s family and all who knew and loved her.
