Naya Rivera’s ex & father of her son Ryan Dorsey entered Lake Piru with her dad George. The pair appeared to be seeking a connection with the missing actress as they embraced in the water.
As the search for Naya Rivera, 33, continues, more of her family members have appeared at Ventura County’s Lake Piru. Her ex-husband Ryan Dorsey, 36 — whom she shares son Josey, 4, with — appeared devastated as he looked somberly out at the water on Saturday, July 11. In another photo, the actor wiped tears away as he sat perched on rocks alone, removing his sunglasses during the deeply emotional moment. Ryan — who was married to Naya from 2014 – 2018 — later entered the water with her distraught father George Rivera.

George and Ryan put their arms around each other as they entered the lake knee-deep in the powerful and tragic image. The duo seemed to be seeking a connection to the presumed dead Glee alum, who police say “may never” be recovered due to possible “entanglement in something” in the murky, deep water. George — who is also dad of Naya’s brother Mychal, 29, and sister Nickayla, 25 — also charged into the water alone, washing his face repeatedly before exiting. Naya’s sister Nickalya hugged Ryan while in the lake, comforting each other through the heartbreaking ordeal.

In other images, Nickayla could be seen crying as she placed her hands over her face as brother Mychal comforted their father George. Earlier in the afternoon, Mychal boarded a Sheriff’s boat alongside mother Yolanda. The duo both sported protective life jackets as they stepped off of the white boat and onto the dock, looking deeply sad as the search continues for Naya.
