Rivera, 33, went missing Wednesday in Southern California with her 4-year-old son, Josie, after renting a pontoon boat. The man who rented the ship on the Riviera found the boy alone in the boat after the pair failed to return to shore.
Authorities said they were using various tools to search the river, including gold, dogs and divers.
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said they believe the actress accidentally drowned in the lake, about 556 miles northwest of suburban Los Angeles. Investigators found Rivera’s ID and a purse. Rivera’s son Jose was wearing a life jacket with his ex-husband Ryan Dorsey. Another life jacket fell off the boat, authorities said.
“We don’t know if he will be found five minutes from now or five days from now, so we will continue this effort,” said Capt. Eric Bush, a spokesman for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. “
The sheriff’s office is working with Coastguard and Cotton County investigators to recover. Busho says Prabir is using side-scanning gold in the water with a visibility of only about one foot. A specially trained dog is also being used to warn handlers if they feel any body underwater, the report said.
