Naya Rivera, ‘Joy’ Actress, Is Missing at California Lake
A hunt group scoured Lake Piru in Ventura County for the 33-year-old on-screen character on Wednesday. Her 4-year-old child was discovered alone on a vessel.
Naya Rivera, 33, who featured in six periods of Fox’s “Joy” as the sharp-witted team promoter Santana Lopez, was absent on Wednesday night as a hunt group scoured Lake Piru in California, as indicated by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office said that it was looking for a “potential suffocating casualty” in the lake. The pursuit was suspended late Wednesday and will be continued Thursday morning.
A sheriff’s office representative, Eric Buschow, said that Ms. Rivera had leased a vessel with her 4-year-old child on Wednesday evening. Another boater found the child alone on the vessel at 4 p.m., he said.
The kid was protected on Wednesday night, he said.
Ms. Rivera started going about as a 4-year-old on the CBS sitcom “The Royal Family” and showed up on various shows, including “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” “Family Matters” and “Baywatch.”
She got through to more extensive fame on “Merriment,” with her job developing all through the primary season before she was made an arrangement standard in the subsequent season.
Ms. Rivera wedded the entertainer Ryan Dorsey in 2014 and brought forth their child, Josey Hollis, in 2015. The couple split in 2018.
