In the wake of "Glee" star Naya Rivera's disappearance, members of her family have kept vigil at Lake Piru, where she was last seen boating with her young son.
The actress, 33, went missing on the California lake on Wednesday, July 8. Police told reporters her 4-year-old son Josey was found alone and sleeping on the pontoon boat he'd been in with his mom. Josey said they'd been in the water earlier that day but she had not managed to get back in the boat, according to reports.
On Saturday, a tweet from ABC producer Anastasia Williams indicated that Rivera's family was staying by the water as authorities, having presumed the star dead, searched for her remains.
"@VENTURASHERIFF told press that this man and woman are Naya's mother and brother," the tweet read. "Her mother is kneeling on the dock with her arms outstretched towards the water."
Speaking to People, a spokesperson for the Ventura County Sheriff's Office confirmed that relatives of the actress had been at the site of Rivera's disappearance.
"Naya's mother and brother have been at the lake every day since Naya disappeared," a source told the magazine. "They have been in constant contact with the Sheriff's Office and involved in the search. On Saturday morning, they joined the search on a sheriff's boat."
Authorities in Ventura County have been sharing updates on social media, including footage from their sonar search that shows how muddy and difficult to see it is at the bottom of the lake.
Rivera's son Josey, whom she shared with her ex-husband Ryan Dorsey, was reportedly "in good health" when he was found. He was later reunited with relatives including his dad.
Ventura County Sheriff Sgt. Kevin Donoghue has said his team does not suspect foul play, nor do they believe Rivera committed suicide.
ABC's Williams has also tweeted that the actress was not believed to have been in "a bad state of mind," and that she was "familiar" with the lake, which she'd been to before.
"I will say that we are hopeful to find her," Donoghue said. "We want to bring peace and closure to the Rivera family. This is a tragic event."
The lake is reportedly closed to the public.
