UPDATE: Friday, 3:30 PM. A Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson gave an update on Friday about the efforts to find Glee actress Naya Rivera. Rivera has been missing since Wednesday when she disappeared while swimming at Lake Piru north of Los Angeles. The boat she rented was found later in the day with her four-year-old son asleep on board.

There were fewer people searching for Rivera on Friday, down to 40 from 100 the day before. The reasons for the reduction, said the spokesperson, were the dangers of low visibility and what he yesterday described as “trees and plants and such that are under the water that can cause entanglements.” Shallow in parts, at its lowest point underwater, the lake is over 1,000 feet deep.

Amber Riley Shares Touching Video of Naya Rivera Singing With Son Josey

  Amber Riley Shares Touching Video of Naya Rivera Singing With Son Josey Amber Riley Shares Touching Video of Naya Rivera Singing With Son Josey“My favorite duet partner,” the Los Angeles native, 34, captioned the Tuesday, July 14, Instagram footage. “I love you. I miss you. I don’t have words right now, just lots of feelings. Rest In Peace Angel, and know that your family will never have to worry about anything.

As a result, rescuers were trying to be both safer and more effective, using technology and special dogs to narrow their search on Friday. “We’re not putting divers in the water at the same rate,” said the spokesperson. “We’re using sonar to identify things and then sending divers down to investigate. With the technology we can search larger areas more efficiently.”

“Last night they had a couple images that showed up that they thought might be promising,” said the Sheriff’s spokesperson. He indicated that, after the search resumed at 6 a.m. Friday morning, a robotic submarine was sent down to those spots. “Unfortunately, they did not locate Naya Rivera,” he said.

The search team was also taking dogs out on boats to see if they could help where sonar could not. Boats combed the lake with the animals positioned at the rear, apparently because dogs can detect scents from the bottom of lakes that are stirred up by the bubbles a boat propeller produces.

UPDATE: Thursday, 4:30 PM. A search and rescue operation has turned into a recovery effort for Glee’s Naya Rivera. The actress has been missing since Wednesday when she disappeared while swimming at Lake Piru north of Los Angeles.

5 major differences between 'The Old Guard' movie and comics

  5 major differences between 'The Old Guard' movie and comics Though the movie is written by the cocreator of the comic, there are still some major differences between the two.

Divers were experiencing less than one foot of visibility in the water, even in daylight. “In that area, there’s a lot of trees and plants and such that are under the water that can cause entanglements,” said a Sheriff’s Department spokesperson. “It makes it unsafe for the divers and makes it a more complicated search.” The difficult conditions have made the recovery operation a very slow process. Crews were also were using sonar to help with the search.

Sheriff’s officials said there was no evidence of foul play.

In a 911 call released on Thursday by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, the woman who first notified authorities of a missing woman identifies herself as the wife of one of the workers at the lake. The call reveals few new details and even contains one factual error. The woman on the call says she believes a little girl was found in the boat when, in fact, it was Rivera’s 4-year-old son.

Several Glee alums took to social media on Thursday to offer prays for their former co-star:

Demi Lovato, who also played opposite Rivera on the hit show, posted an Instagram story asking people to “Please pray for @nayarivera to be found safe and sound.”

UPDATE, Thursday, 11 a.m. The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department has called in specialized dive teams in their Lake Piru search for actress Naya Rivera. “Our hearts and prayers go out the all of the family and friends of the Rivera family,” the Department tweeted.

The VCSD did not officially announce that Rivera is presumed dead.

“We have mutual aid for specialized dive teams en route from Los Angeles County, San Luis Obispo County, and Tulare County,” the VCSD tweet said. “We will keep you posted with any updates as we learn them. Our hearts and prayers go out the all of the family and friends of the Rivera family.”

Naya Rivera posing for a picture: Naya Rivera was reported missing on Wednesday, July 8, after renting a boat with her 4-year-old son, Josey, in the Los Angeles area. Us Weekly confirmed that officers were looking for the 33-year-old Glee star on Wednesday after she was late to return the pontoon boat. “It is believed that Naya and her son were swimming in the lake near the boat and as they were getting back into the boat, her son made it into the boat and Naya went underwater and did not resurface,” the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department told Us. Rivera shares Josey with ex-husband Ryan Dorsey. The pair, who wed in July 2014, surprised fans with their decision to tie the knot just three months after her split from Big Sean. (Rivera and the 32-year-old rapper called off their engagement in April 2014.) The Step Up: High Water star later revealed in her 2016 memoir that she briefly dated Dorsey, 36, before she met Sean. “By the time we sort of reconnected, I was like, gosh, there’s a reason why you keep coming back in my life and we keep coming back together,” Rivera wrote of Dorsey in her 2016 book, Sorry Not Sorry.     Rivera and Dorsey’s marriage nearly came to an end in November 2016 when she filed for divorce. While they later reconciled, their relationship hit another rough patch in November 2017 when Rivera was arrested after an alleged altercation with Dorsey. After the actress subsequently filed for divorce for the second time, the domestic battery charges against her were dropped as Dorsey decided not to press charges. While their divorce was finalized in June 2018, the twosome continued to coparent Josey. The day before Rivera brought her son to the lake on Wednesday, she shared a sweet snap with the little boy via Instagram. “Just the two of us,” she captioned a photo of her kissing her son. As fans flooded the comments section of Rivera’s post with positive thoughts, another one of Rivera’s social media posts went viral. “No matter the year, circumstance, or strifes [every day] you’re alive is a blessing,” Rivera wrote on July 2 via Twitter. “Make the most of today and every day you are given. tomorrow is not promised.” Scroll through for everything we know about Rivera’s accident:
