The recovery effort

During a press briefing at 2pm PT, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office, confirmed that they found Rivera's body close to the surface of the water. Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub addressed the press and provided a recap of the search.

Rivera and her son had rented a boat around 1pm PT last Wednesday and at 4:48 pm, officials responded to a report of a boy being alone on a boat. The owner of the boat rental went out to look for the boat and found Naya's son Josey alone and asleep on board. According to NBCLA and the sheriff's department, Rivera and her son had gone swimming in the lake, but Rivera did not have a life vest on. After Josey was found on the boat, police also found an adult life vest, as well as Rivera's purse and wallet.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Rivera's friends and family during this time.
