‘Glee’ star Heather Morris mourns with Naya Rivera’s family at Lake Piru
“Glee” actress Heather Morris was seen holding hands with co-star Naya Rivera’s family in an emotional scene at the Southern California lake where her body was recovered Monday, according to reports.
Morris, who played Rivera’s love interest on the Fox series, was among the friends who joined some of the actress’ relatives at Lake Piru, the Daily Mail reported.
The group was captured holding hands facing the shore of the lake, about 56 miles northwest of Los Angeles, and then consoling each other with hugs, news station KABC reported.
It’s unclear whether any other cast members were at the scene.
The heartbreaking scene came as authorities announced a body was recovered floating in the northeast section of the lake, where Rivera was last seen, the outlet reported.
The body was confirmed as Rivera, who went missing Wednesday on a boating trip with her 4-year-old son, Josey, law enforcement sources told TMZ.
Authorities said Rivera was presumed dead after vanishing beneath the surface of the lake, prompting a six-day search to find her body.
Morris pleaded with authorities on social media to join the search with a “small group of friends” on Sunday, saying she felt “helpless” amid her disappearance.
“I understand your team is doing EVERYTHING in their power, but we are feeling helpless, powerless and want to help in any way,” Morris wrote to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office on Twitter.
