During a press conference on Monday, Ventura County Sheriffs Office gave an update on finding Rivera and the cooperation from outside law enforcement agencies.

Rivera went missing July 8 after going on a boat ride in the lake with her 4-year-old son. She disappeared while swimming in the reservoir northwest of Los Angeles, sheriff’s officials said. Her son was found asleep on a pontoon boat that had been rented three hours earlier that day.

County officials said there were no signs of foul play.

“I can’t make any sense of what happened,” said Ventura County Deputy Chris Dyer. “We just know that we found a 4-year-old on a boat, and he said that his mother never got back in. “So, right now, we’re viewing this as a tragic accident.”

On Twitter, Dave Quinn tweeted out the image below of the Glee cast gathering at Lake Piru, where Rivera’s body was recovered.
