Victoria Justice tweeted, "Praying for Naya 🙏🙏🙏," as Glee actress Vanessa Lengies wrote, "I love her. I love you. Holding you tight. 🙏"

Jackée Harry shared a throwback clip of herself sharing the screen with Rivera on The Royal Family in the early '90s. "Prayers up for the lovely Naya Rivera. 🙏🙏," wrote Harry on Twitter. "We starred alongside one another in her first very television series, The Royal Family, and I’ve watched her career blossom ever since. Please God, don’t cut this life short."

Rivera's ex-fiancé Big Sean also liked a number of tweets calling for her to be found safe. The pair began dating in April 2013, becoming engaged that October. In April 2014, however, the rapper broke off the engagement, saying at the time that it was a "difficult decision."

A search-and-rescue operation was undertaken at the lake, but she was not found, according to Fillmore Police Department. Authorities suspended the search for the night, but plan to resume on Thursday morning.

"The missing person at Lake Puru has been identified as Naya Rivera, 33, of Los Angeles," the Ventura County Sheriff's Department tweeted at 10:39 pm PST. "SAR operation will continue at first light."

According to KNBC, Josey was wearing his lifejacket when he was found asleep on the boat. An adult lifejacket, believed to be the one provided to Rivera, was still on the boat. "This is considered to be a horrible accident," a Ventura County Sheriff's Department spokesperson told the outlet, adding that no foul play was suspected.

On July 2, Rivera tweeted a selfie with an optimistic message, writing at the time: "no matter the year, circumstance, or strifes everyday you're alive is a blessing. make the most of today and every day you are given. tomorrow is not promised."
