Days after Naya Rivera went missing in Southern California, the star's friends, family members and fans are starting to realize they may need to accept a tragic reality:
There may never be any closure.
Giving an update on the Glee actress Thursday afternoon, Sgt. Kevin Donoghue of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office admitted that Rivera's body may never turn up.
“It depends,” Donoghue responded when asked if Rivera’s corpse will be recovered if she did, indeed drown in a tragic accident.
“If the body is entangled in something beneath the water, it may never come back up. We don’t know.”
As previously reported, the 34-year-old Rivera rented a pontoon boat with her four-year old son, Josey, on Wednesday morning.
Hours later, a fellow boater discovered Josie alone on the vessel... his mother nowhere to be found.
Authorities were subsequently called in and a massive search for Rivera commenced, with over 80 people at one point scouring Lake Piru.
Sadly, though, police officers quickly grew pessimistic over their chances of locating Rivera, giving the low visibility in the area.
According to the same office cited above, "investigators believe Rivera drowned in what appears to be a tragic accident."
Could she somehow have taken her own life?
Considering the former Glee actress posted on Instagram this month about the important of savoring each and every day?
"We interviewed her son and there was nothing that we learned from her son that would have suggested that this was suicide."
"Everything that we've learned so far leads to this being some sort of water recreational accident," Donoghue added.
Donoghue went on to provide a few more details, but none which shed much light on what actually happened to Rivera.
Despite all the tools available to authorities, they appear to be up against the elements and the odds in this case.
The officer noted that the search uses advanced technology, such as a scanning sonar, which "paints pictures of the lake bed floor."
"When it sees an anomaly, an object that's consistent with the shape and size of what we're looking for, then we send divers to search that specific area."
Donoghue said three such devices are being used to search for Rivera's body, though he wouldn't pinpoint their chances of success.
"To say definitively what actually happened, we really can't say. We just don't know, it's a mystery.
"We're still investigating, we're still searching. We're trying to uncover clues as we go."
"But so far, we really don't have a lot of information to make any guesses as to what could have happened."
If Rivera really did drown and perish this week, she would be the ninth victim to have done so since 1994 in Lake Piru.
The body of water is not a natural lake - and its bottom is covered by trees and other debris, in which a swimmer can easily get entangled.
The lake also has strong currents, making swimming difficult.
"People have been asking for years for the city to put up warning signs for swimmers," reads a new petition, shared in the wake of Rivera's disappearance.
"Locals of Ventura County don’t go to Lake Piru for this reason! Tourists have no idea what they’re getting into. Lake Piru needs signs."
"We’re tired of waiting. We need justice for all those who got lost at Lake Piru. Put up the signs."
Lake Piru is located about 57 miles north of Los Angeles in Ventura County, California, is nearly two miles long and 130-feet deep at some points.
Following the discovery of the pontoon on Wednesday, Josey told investigators that his mother did not get back in the boat after being in the lake.
It is unclear, though, if Rivera put her son back in... or if Josey climbed up himself.
"I know she was in the water. I don’t know if she helped him back on the boat," Donoghue said.
"That I don’t know."
As former co-stars and loved ones continue to mourn Rivera - fearing the worst while trying to maintain whatever semblance of hope they can - Josey at least appears to be in good physical condition.
Police said Thursday that four-year old, who has since reunited with father Ryan Dorsey, is in "good health."
Ryan and Naya were married from 2014-2018, and Josey is the couple's only child together.
Devastatingly, to state the obvious, the boy remains the only witness to what happened to Naya.
"He gave us enough information for us to conclude that she is still in the lake somewhere," Donoghue said.
'My investigators are speaking to the family," he added. "They're saying he's doing as good as he can under these circumstances."
"Given his age, I don't think he fully understands everything that's going on. But his family, their family, they're heartbroken."
"This is an absolute tragedy."

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is coming back for Season 4.
We know this for certaiin.
However, in just the two weeks that have elapsed since this announcement was made, plenty of questions have arisen in regard to various cast members.
Snooki, for example, is out.
She claimed on the third season finale this summer that she was sick of the drama -- and then she elaborated on this stance via a subsequent podcast.
The beloved MTV personality really is saying goodbye to the show that made her famous.
But what about Angelina Pivarnick?
Pivarnick was at the center of the feud that took over Jersey Shore to wrap up season three, as she claimed her wedding day was totally ruined by the insult-laden speech given at the reception by her bridesmaids.
Bridesmaids and co-stars, of course, that is.
"Angelina, you're the lice to my hair," Deena said on stage, for example, while Snooki added that she was "the fly to our shit."
Pivarnick flipped out at her supposed friends after they gave this roast and embarrassed her in front of her guests.
Many observers therefore wondered whether Angelina would return for another round of episodes... or if this incident pushed her over the edge.
Late last month, Pivarnick hinted that she'd be sticking around because...
... well, Jersey Shore makes her a lot of moeny.
Now, however, she's erased all doubts.
“[Are] you not returning to the show? I hope you do return because [it’s] boring without you!!! It would get so interesting if [Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola] returned!!!” one user wrote to the 34-year-old via Instagram on Thursday, July 9.
“Yes, I am,” Pivarnick replied.
So there you have it.
To many viewers, Angelina's alleged rivalry with JWoww and company was simply BS fodder concocted by producers to produce attention and ratings.
Since the finale aired, though, the women have been continued to quarrel over social media.
Most recently, Deena took to Twitter to share her side of the story, Tweeting:
“For months, myself, Jenni and Nicole were getting threats and her knowing how bad it was for us she continued to play the victim and make us look [like] terrible to people … and after seeing the episode and seeing her true colors …
"I can care less if I ever see her again in my life."
She will be seeing Angelina for sure next season, however.
“I’ve been getting death threats since 2009 And I still get them to this day,” Angelina responded at the time, showing little mercy or regard for her castmate, adding:
“I can’t control what people write to you or what they write to me.
"You are always going to have trolls commenting and saying stupid s–t. Don’t blame [me] for other people’s actions."
Vinny Guadagnino, meanwhile, also appears to be on Team Anyone But Angelina.
“OMG, Angelina. Shut up … I liked it better when your Twitter was deleted," he wrote at one point this summer, to which Pivarnick fired back:
"It was NEVER deleted, sweetie pie. Just do yourself a favor and learn how to talk to the QUEEN of Staten Island!!! [You] are a peasant, and I am your ruler.
"Get that straight, and we shall be good. Whoever messes [wit] the queen shall face consequences."
MTV has not yet announced a premiere date for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 4.
As far as we know, all original cast members aside from Snooki will return for another bunch of drunken episodes.
Yes, even Ronnie.
Despite the fact that he clearly needs help.
