Officials have extended their search to find Naya although they are still to find the star that went missing on July 8th, 2020 in her trip to Lake Piru with her son.
Speaking about the investigation Ventura County Sheriff said: “In today’s search for Naya Rivera, cabins and outbuildings in the surrounding area will be checked once again, as well as the shoreline.” “This has been part of the ongoing search effort since her disappearance on Wednesday afternoon. Boat crews continue to scan the lake.”

Further Sgt. Shannon stated that a search around the lake was made but “nothing has changed.”
“They’re not occupied. Nothing came of it,” Shannon said to People Magazine, describing that the wider focus of the search “was the shoreline.”
“They were just doing the shoreline to make sure nothing has changed. There were a lot of folks that were talking on social media about, ‘Oh, check the cabins. Maybe she’s there, maybe she’s hanging out,’ ” King says, noting that since they had “extra” search and rescue personnel on Sunday, they “did go to a couple of the cabins that were on the north end of the lake, that’s all that’s out there, and nothing came of it.”
However, at this time the officials have no explanation to think that Naya has ‘ever “left the water”.’
“There’s no evidence to say she left the water. It appears to be 100 percent just a tragic drowning,” Shannon adds.
As the search keeps continuing officials will keep ‘scanning sonar, dive boat crews and rescue group’ for “visual surface checks” of the river.
Briefing on the situation of Lake Piru which has made it difficult to find Shannon says “it’s not like typical waters, which are crystal clear; this is murky, cold lake water.”

I don’t know if I’ll ever believe it. You were just here… We were just in the back swimming with Josey the day before. Life just isn’t fair.”
“I don’t know what to say… I’m thankful for our times and our journey that brought us together and gave us the sweetest and kindest smart little boy we could ever hope for. I remember sometimes you used to get annoyed at me: ‘Ryan can you stop snap chatting!’ Haha. I’m glad I didn’t listen to you because I have hundreds and probably thousands of snaps and videos that Josey will have forever and know his momma loved him more than life, and how much fun we had together as he was growing up,” he added.
“Life is all about good times and bad times but with Josey, it makes the bad a little less so because a part of you will always be with us. He’ll never forget where he came from. We miss you. We will always love you. Love you Meep,” stated Ryan who was wedded to Naya from 2014 to 2018.
“To everyone that reached out and I haven’t had a chance to or just didn’t get back to you…thank you all for the overwhelming love and support you’ve sent our way. I’ll just say in closing, be kind to yourself, be kind to others, forgive…forget…don’t hold grudges… if you have nothing nice to say maybe try not to say anything,” he ended. “There’s peace in silence. Time on Earth is precious and you just never know….you never know what could happen. Hold your loved ones close, and cherish the times you have with those you care about.”

Though finding the 4 yr old alone officials said he was “in good health,” and he was handed over to his father.
Sources also added that: “Ryan can’t imagine raising Josey without Naya. It’s the most devastating situation.” Ryan had tied the knot with Naya in 2014 and ended their relationship in 2018.
Officials also think that Naya had drowned safeguarding Josey.
“We know from speaking with her son, that he and Naya swam in the lake together at some point during their journey,” Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said at a news conference. “It was during that time that her son described being helped into the boat by Naya, who boosted him onto the deck from behind. He told investigators that he looked back and saw her disappear under the surface of the water.”
