Rivera was declared missing after her 4-year-old son, Josey, was found asleep alone on a boat on Lake Piru in Ventura County. According to officials, Rivera and her son had rented the boat about three hours before she was discovered to be missing.
The officials also reportedly revealed that Josey told authorities that he went swimming with his mother, but she never made it back to the boat.
While Josey was found wearing a life jacket, it is believed that Rivera was not wearing one after an adult life vest was found on the boat.
Following the discovery that there was a missing person, a search was immediately initiated with the use of helicopters, trained divers as well as drones, but the actress is yet to be found.
Officials later explained that the search was suspended in the evening and that rescue effort would continue at sunrise on Thursday.
