Award winning Actress Naya Rivera, best known as the snarky Santana Lopez on “Glee,” is presumed dead after she disappeared from a rented boat on a Southern California lake Wednesday, according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.
By about 12 p.m. ET Thursday, the effort to find Rivera transitioned to a search and recovery effort. About 80 people were taking part in operations to find her body.
Sheriff’s officials said there was no evidence of foul play or any indication of a suicide. They also said they believe whatever happened was an accident of some sort. Authorities also said the Rivera had been to the lake in the past.
