CALIFORNIA (NEWS 1130) – Former ‘Glee’ actor and musician Naya Rivera is missing and presumed dead.

Multiple reports suggest she was on a rented pontoon boat on Lake Piru, California with her 4-year-old child Wednesday afternoon but failed to return the boat when it was due.

Staff went out on the water and found the boat with the 4-year-old on it, but Rivera was not on board.

She is formally missing, presumed drowned and a search will resume in Thursday morning.

The 33-year-old rose to prominence in her role as tough cheerleader Santana Lopez on ‘Glee’ and played the role for 6 seasons before launching her own musical career.
