  • Naya Rivera’s son, Josey Dorsey, is with her family as the search for her continues at California’s Lake Piru.

  • Josey is said to be “in good health” amid this horrifying incident.

  • Naya went missing on Wednesday, July 8.

Yesterday, Glee actress Naya Rivera was reported missing after she went on a boat ride with her son, Josey Dorsey, in California’s Lake Piru. Authorities confirmed a “large-scale search and rescue operation” for her is underway, and her son is now with her family.

According to the latest statement by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, Josey, who was found asleep wearing a life vest on the boat, is “in good health.” Captain Eric Buschow added, “The family is going through a very traumatic time right now.”

Before Naya went missing, she posted a picture of herself and Josey and captioned it, “Just the two of us.”

Captain Buschow went on to say Josey remembered being in the water and swimming with his mom, adding, “He came up and got back up on the boat, but she did not.”

Naya hasn’t been located yet, but the captain said, “All indications point to [an accidental drowning]. These big reservoirs, there is a lot that goes on. There are plenty of currents. People drown in California lakes every year.”

In the hours since this horrible news broke, Naya’s former costars and friends have posted asking their followers and fans to pray for her. Naya’s Glee costar and onscreen wife Heather Morris wrote, “We need all the prayers we can get to bring our Naya back home to us. We need your love and light.” Demi Lovato, who had a recurring guest role on Glee, added, “Please pray for @NayaRivera to be found safe and sound.”
