Body of missing Glee star, Naya Rivera, found in lake

Naya Rivera (4843131488)

Five days following her disappearance, the body of Naya Rivera has been found at Lake Piru in Southern California, US.

The lake is located an hour outside of Los Angeles and was searched by dozens of divers after Naya Rivera went missing last week while she rented a boat with her 4-year old son on Wednesday 8th July. After the two failed to return with the boat, the vendor found the vessel drifting with Naya's son, Josey Hollis Dorsey, asleep on board.

He told authorities that both he and his mother had been swimming but his mother never got back into the boat.

Naya Rivera is believed to have drowned. She was 33 years old.

Rivera was best known for her role as Santana Lopez in Glee, which she played for six seasons.

She becomes the third major cast member from the show to die, fueling the 'Glee Curse' rumours.
