The body found at a Southern California lake has been identified as former “Glee” actress Naya Rivera, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said during a press conference Monday.
The body was discovered Monday morning at Lake Piru, where it was found floating in the northeast area of the lake, Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said.
Naya Rivera’s body was found in the lake six days after she went missing.
Rivera, 33, is believed to have drowned while swimming in the lake with her 4-year-old son, who was found asleep on their rental pontoon boat after it was overdue for return.
One life jacket was found on the boat and the boy was wearing another.
Officials said Rivera’s son told rescuers he and his mother had gone into the water to swim, but she did not get back on the boat.
