Heather Morris and Other Glee Stars Gather at the Lake Where Naya Rivera Died

It was a somber scene at Lake Piru on Monday as Heather Morris and other Glee cast members gathered together at the site where their former costar Naya Rivera went missing.

A source tells PEOPLE that Morris, who played Rivera's love interest on the musical comedy series, was at the lake and arrived with friends.

In footage captured by ABC 7, Morris, 33, and several others are seen standing hand-in-hand as they look out onto the body of water where Rivera was last seen.

The Ventura County Sheriff's Office tweeted earlier on Monday that a "body has been found at Lake Piru this morning. The recovery is in progress."

During a press conference on Monday afternoon, Sheriff Bill Ayub of Ventura County Sheriff's Office said they "are confident the body we found was Naya Rivera."

"It has been an extremely difficult time for her family throughout this ordeal," said Ayub. "Our hearts are with them and we share in their grief for Naya’s loss."




A spokesperson for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to PEOPLE on Saturday that Rivera’s family members had visited the California lake.

"Naya's mother and brother have been at the lake every day since Naya disappeared. They have been in constant contact with the Sheriff's Office and involved in the search,” a source told PEOPLE. “On Saturday morning, they joined the search on a sheriff's boat.”

Ventura County Sheriff Sgt. Kevin Donoghue previously told PEOPLE that although the events that led to Rivera's disappearance were "still a mystery," there was no reason to suspect foul play or that Rivera was attempting suicide.
