Ventura County Sheriff gives statement after Naya Rivera's body has been found

Glee star Naya Rivera has been found dead five days after she leapt into a lake in front of her young son.

The remains were found after a frantic search for the actress, 33, who jumped in the water at California’s Lake Piru and didn't resurface, according to her little boy Josey, 4.

Ventura County officials apparently confirmed the body found was Rivera, reported the Los Angeles Times, after her devastated family were pictured holding hands beside the water.

“She mustered up enough energy to get her son but not herself on the boat” truly heartbreaking 💔 A wonderful mother. RIP Naya
wearing your life jacket will save your life..why she didn't wear hers is strange, since a lot of people have lost there life's in that lake..signs should be posted and warnings should be put on all boats to wear your life jackets even while swimming
Does this mean she saved her son but couldn't save herself? Man I hate this. Rest in peace Naya. This is devastating news.
Some of those reporter's questions are so crass, why does it matter if she was face up or down when she was found - someone's loved one has died, show some respect

As a mother, I'd do anything to protect my children, even if that means putting my own life at risk to save them. Naya saved her son but unfortunately lost her life by doing so.
My heart is breaking. I send my love out to her son, family & anyone else who needs it. She died a hero 💕

I can’t imagine her thoughts as she drifted away from her son :(
Omg she made sure he was ok before drowning , this is so heartbreaking ... I can’t fathom the tragedy of this story .
Edit - Naya boosted her son back onto the boat before she drowned . She saved him before things got ugly and unfortunately as we know the worst happened .

heart is heavy. can’t imagine what her sweet family’s going through. praying for them and her little boy. may she rest in peace, love, and light ❤️
God bless her heart and soul. She saved her son’s life and gave up her own. She was many things to many people: an actress, a singer, a daughter, a sister, an inspiration....but she was a MOTHER first! And this just solidifies how wonderful of a Mother she was! “She mustered up enough energy to get her son back onto the boat, but not enough to save herself.” 💔😓 Rest in Paradise you beautiful, selfless soul. Your son is alive today because of you Naya! Heaven couldn’t wait for this beautiful angel, and man, are they lucky to have her!

i wish i had the right words but this happened so suddenly, i'm still in shock and i'm currently sobbing

as much of a tragedy as this is, it's such a relief that her family, friends, and fans now have closure, especially because people were rumouring her body will never be found

naya, i'm sure you're in a better place now, it's good to know that you're not suffering anymore. you brought so much light into people's lives and i'm so grateful for your existence

to her family and friends, i am so sorry for your losses, please remember that grief has no expiration date

rest in peace naya marie rivera, i love you so much, as do countless other people <3

guys remember keep the comments respectful! if it’s not going to help the situation in any way it’s best you don’t say it!!!

remember her family can see all this and although not yet, josie, her son will grow up without a mother and will be able to see every thing that people have written about her, make sure he sees the good and not the bad!!! 🥺🤍🤍

we all loved naya and forever will rip angel!!! 😚🤧

Geezus.... absolutely heartbreaking. Poor child must be so confused 💔
Lesson learned: Don't swim with a very young child if you're the only adult in the boat, everyone in the boat should always wear life vests and don't travel using a boat if you're alone. Safety first is the number one priority. Condolence to her family, friends and fans.
Natalie Romero
Natalie Romero:
Obviously she wasn’t diving in and swimming underwater with her son with her.. so did her foot just get stuck? How did she get dragged underneath the water?
Rosie Young
Rosie Young:
I can’t believe it. Absolute tragedy. We will always love you sweet Naya. Rest in peace. 💔❤️
Natalie Romero
Natalie Romero:
I don’t understand so did her and her son swim for a little bit then she got stuck on a branch then started sinking? But was able to get her son in the boat was the water cold or something I don’t completely understand
Miss Reen
Miss Reen:
I just feel like when it's your time to die.. you'll know.. and she died the same way she lived surrounded by waters.. in March she posted a video of her in a bathtub under water saying, " gravity pulls me under but the urge to breath helps me stay afloat." She probably had signs but she didn't understand what they meant. If she was spiritual she could've prayed about it or maybe she did... I don't know but it's just not a coincidence. It was her time. So sad.
