NAYA Rivera was spotted out and about with her young son Josey just five days before going missing at a lake in California.
On July 3 the Glee actress and her only child, 4, were seen shopping together in California as Naya held her little one by the hand while she held a cereal box in the other hand — in what may be the final photos of the star.
In the outing, Naya, 33, wore white shorts and a long-sleeved gray shirt matched with a ball cap and a pair of white sneakers.
She kept a low profile with a pair of sunglasses, also making sure to wear her mask while out.
Josey — who Naya shares with ex-husband Ryan Dorsey — held on to his mother while the duo made their way around.
Late Wednesday, Naya's son was found by himself on a boat at Lake Piru, Southern California as sources told TMZ that Josey said his mom had "jumped into the water but didn't come back up."
Divers and helicopters began searching the lake but Naya has not been found, and her life jacket was reportedly still on the boat.
Josey is currently safe with family members as the search for the Step Up costar continues.
Divers searched the lake until nightfall, but they were not able to find Naya, and the search is expected to resume again when daylight strikes again.
According to FOX11 in Los Angeles, Naya's vehicle was found parked close to the boat rental company — her purse was still inside.
The local Sheriff has said that Naya is "presumed dead".
In a tragic final Instagram post, Naya holds Josey close with a caption that read, "Just the two of us."
Plenty of fans headed to the comments section to react to the heartbreaking news.
One wrote: "I really hope you are brought back safe to read all these comments left by people who care for you."
Another added: Please be okay…you have to be okay. Prayers for your family."
A follower also said: "To think this could be the last picture she posted. So sad."
Lake Piru is one of two lakes in Ventura County that have a total of 42 miles of coastline.
Over the years there have been various drownings, making the lake quite dangerous for those who attempt to swim in it.
According to the LA Times, the lake holds deep columns of chilly water that can overwhelm people.
Lifeguards are on patrol at the lake three days a week in order to keep those in the area safe.
Strong winds on Lake Piru also often whip up waves that can rock a small boat enough to tip an unsteady fisherman into the water.
