Amber Riley Calls Glee Costar Naya Rivera's Disappearance 'Devastating' as Kevin McHale Speaks Out
Also on Sunday, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office issued a warning to anyone "intent on searching for Naya Rivera on your own," imploring them not to do so as conditions around Lake Piru are dangerous.
"1. The lake is closed. 2. Temps are already in the 90’s. 3. The terrain around the lake is very steep and rugged. Our teams are well equipped and highly trained. We don’t want to have to rescue you," the sheriff's office shared on Twitter.
Speaking with PEOPLE on Sunday, Sgt. Shannon King confirmed that investigators completed a search of the cabins near the lake. “They’re not occupied. Nothing came of it,” King said, explaining that the larger focus of the search “was the shoreline.”
“They were just doing the shoreline to make sure nothing has changed. There were a lot of folks that were talking on social media about, ‘Oh, check the cabins. Maybe she’s there, maybe she’s hanging out,’ ” King said, noting that since they had “extra” search and rescue personnel on Sunday, they “did go to a couple of the cabins that were on the north end of the lake, that’s all that’s out there, and nothing came of it.”
Authorities said "there’s no evidence to say she left the water" and "it appears to be 100 percent just a tragic drowning," according to King.
As the search for Rivera, 33, continues, authorities will continue using scanning sonar, dive boat crews and search and rescue teams for “visual surface checks” of the water.
On Sunday, the Sheriff's Office also shared a photo of divers in the water looking for Rivera. "Divers continue the search for Naya Rivera this afternoon at Lake Piru. This is day 5 of the search and recovery effort," the wrote on Twitter. "She disappeared Wednesday afternoon while swimming in the lake."
King said investigators will continue to search the area “at least through Tuesday.”
“There’s no talk of either one way or the other after Tuesday,” King notes. “Tuesday’s sort of the projected date that we’re discussing, and we’re going to continue doing what we have been doing.”
Rivera was presumed dead on July 9, one day after her son Josey was found alone on a pontoon boat at Lake Piru, where they had been swimming.
Authorities have said that Josey is "in good health" and the child has since been reunited with his dad Ryan Dorsey, who is Rivera's ex-husband. The toddler told investigators that his mother never got back into the boat after they had been in the water, according to a press release.
