    I understand wanting her found and closure for the family, but some of these peoples' posts just shock me. Clearly people lack knowledge on what we discuss on this message board and know about bodies in drownings and all. But wanting a citizen search or more people-- smh. Do people not understand if and when her body ascends to the top, if it's just people out there searching, they could take photos and leak it online, and cause a HUGE mess and make it even more tough for families. For example, the members of law enforcement that had photos of Kobe and the crash... some people lack common sense and a heart. I'm afraid if they open that lake back up and her body floats up, it would be a disaster for the common folk. Please leave it to those in charge. There's a guy on YouTube called Adventures with a Purpose and many viewers have reached out to him to help. He does sonar searching, diving, etc. Has brought closure to a few families recently with cars and bodies underwater.

    *** EDIT: I'm referring to the tweets and people harassing the dept on Twitter

    Her ex is at the scene! As evidenced by the Daily Mail. He looks distraught along with the other family members, so I am sure is not really concerned about social media at the moment.

    That's a valid question for sure. I get the impression it is purely an accident, but like you mention, who knows yet! I do think it is an odd situation for a young mother to go on a boat with a toddler alone, and it didn't look like many people were around i.e. L.A. beach waters. But according to news reports, she often went to that lake as a peaceful place to go to, so it sounds like she had experience with boats. Tragic!

    I too am surprised that the sonar scans may be all but completed! Surely they couldn't scan most of that side of the lake by now?! I would think that would be the last thing to be discontinued! I wonder how long similar searches continue for in general?

    Oh! Don't worry about it, I should've just responded to today's posts lol. It is just all so sad. Unfortunately, the 'edit' function here only works for awhile ;)

    Good points. I guess when the official search is over this Adventures guy could have free rein to help with the search, maybe with the family's blessing, if she isn't found by LE.

    Lot's of good new info in this article:


    Authorities used a photo that Naya Rivera took of her son, Josey, shortly before she went missing to help them determine where to start searching for her in a California lake.

    Naya Rivera Missing After Boating With Son Josey on Lake Piru: Everything We Know
    “There was a picture sent to a family member that showed the boy on the boat by a cove,” Robert Inglis of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue Team told Us Weekly in an exclusive interview. “We found where that cove was.”

    A timestamp on the photo revealed that the pic was taken 90 minutes to two hours before the 4-year-old was found alone on the pontoon boat on Wednesday, July 8, half a mile from the shore of Lake Piru, with no sign of the Glee actress, 33.

    Inglis explained that the area where the photo was taken and the spot where the boat was found were starting points for authorities before the search was expanded. “We did send our dive members to those two locations and searched those extensively,” he told Us, adding that in a lot of cases there are witnesses “who see someone jumping off a boat so we know which area to search and we can find the body more quickly. In this case, it really could be the whole lake. There are a lot of coves that have to be searched.”

    From the article I posted above this is the divers theory of what happened which I'm pretty sure people on WS theorized too.

    “What I suspect is that the winds kicked up,” he said. “Those pontoon boats are very light, and when you push them, it can get away from you. She might’ve tried to swim after the boat. But that’s all speculation. Once we do locate her, that’ll answer a lot more questions.”

    I grew up on a lake in WA state that is 50 miles long and 1500 ft deep, super clear water.
    As a single mom, there has been plenty of times that I’ve taken my son on a boat and on a Jetski alone. And we’ve jumped in and swam! Apparently, only couples can boat?? Or I have to wait until a friend or grandparent can go?? No, it’s fine for a single parent to take their child alone on a lake.

    I'd say that if there were an unlikely alternative to an accidental drowning it would be her faking her own death. Obviously that would be a better outcome also.

    I assume you would both wear life jackets. I'm just saying that personally I would not feel comfortable enough to go out in a boat in deeper water with a young child, particularly since I am not a strong swimmer. I would feel better doing so from shore in shallow water.

    Well, it isn't unheard of, that's for sure! But in this case, I wouldn't think so being as her toddler was the only one with her onboard.

    Im sure LE and the searchers are doing the best they can with what they have.

    They have interviewed her son, who was on the boat with her, and was able to provide them with some knowledge and insight into what happened(linked earlier in thread.).

    They have analyzed the cell phone photo she sent to a family member while on the boat at the lake and determined where on the lake she was when that photo was taken(linked earlier in the thread).

    I'm sure that they are using the best equipment they can afford, with their often-times limited budgets. It's a shame they probably can't afford the $200,000 systems.

    It's a shame you think the divers are "useless". They are risking their lives in dangerous conditions to find her body so her family can have closure.

    All IMO.

    ETA: The searchers numbered over 80 and were from multiple counties (linked earlier in thread). They even RE- checked cabins on shore to appease posters on social media sites, using valuable resources/personnel who could've been used in other ways/locations to locate NR. IMO.

    #NayaRivera: The search for @NayaRivera has ended this Sunday evening on #LakePiru with no new developments, per @VENTURASHERIFF. Another search of shoreline cabins, outbuildings, and the pumphouse yielded nothing. The mission resumes Monday morning. #FindNaya

    This lake is anything but clear. Deep, sticky, muddy bottom, silt drifting on top of that, and tons of underwater obstacles (plant life, rocks). Also, except near the marina, most of it plunges deep right from the shore and not easy to scramble out on the far side.

    That's why something like 9 (now 10) people have drowned there since around 1994. I guess that doesn't sound like a lot, but it's not close to anything and only about 3000 residents in the area. Tiny marina, really. It's very quiet.

    Other parents have drowned there, trying to save a child.

    The Tragic History of Lake Piru, Where Naya Rivera Went Missing.

    I guess I was off by a little - 12 drownings in 23 years, not counting this tragedy. But the murkiness of the water seems to me to be a big problem.
