The Glee star was reported missing after her 4-year-old son was discovered alone on boat just three hours after she rented it. Authorities determined she and her son had been swimming in the lake, but Rivera did not return to the boat and presumably drowned.
After her son was found unaccompanied on the boat, authorities noted he was wearing a life vest and told them she hadn’t worn one. Search teams had been looking for Rivera ever since July 8, with her father and her ex-husband Ryan Dorsey among those joining the efforts. When she was presumed dead, locals in Ventura County petitioned for more protection for swimmers. Rivera is the ninth person known to have drowned in Lake Piru since 1994.
