Between 1994 and 2000, seven people have drowned in the lake, which is 130 ft (40 m) deep.

A boat is seen on Lake Piru in the Los Padres National Forest, Ventura County, California on July 9, 2020 as the search continues for actress Naya Rivera, who was reported missing after going boating with her son on July 8. "Her mother is kneeling on the dock with her arms outstretched towards the water", Anastasia tweeted.

Josey was found alone and sleeping on the boat wearing his life vest, but Rivera was nowhere to be found.

The Change.org petition was created by Ventura County locals, who have said that the lake is known to be unsafe to swim in because it has "very bad whirlpools".

He was talking in reaction to an Internet petition, that has drawn almost 25,000 signatures, and demanding the investigation be extended past the lake.

In the 911 call, a woman's voice is heard as she tells the dispatcher that she's calling from "Lake Piru". However, when the three hours passed and the rental hadn't been returned, the staff at the rental office went out to the lake and discovered the 4-year-old was alone in the boat. An adult-sized life jacket was also on board.

"I know she would remind me in moments like this that God has a plan for everything and although we may not know that that plan is, we need to keep our chin up and stay strong", Morris concluded.

In a statement on Thursday, the Ventura County Sheriff's Office said they believe Naya drowned in "what appears to be a tragic accident".

"He noticed his mom disappear beneath the drinking water". The search of the moment there was zero visibility in the water and risky conditions too for the divers. They wanted to show the public what they're working up against. And on Friday night, it shared two video clips, one demonstrating the extremely low underwater visibility of Lake Piru affecting the search, and another showing the equipment being used.

Rivera played Santana López on the Fox show "Glee" for six years between 2009 and 2015, and appeared in nearly every episode of the musical-comedy-drama.

If she is declared dead, she will become the third major cast member from the show to die in their 30s. "Approximately 100 personnel are participating in the mission on Thursday, including resources from neighboring counties and the United States Coast Guard".
