Another of the show's stars, Heather Morris, wrote in her Instagram story: "We need all the prayers we can get to bring our Naya back home to us".

On Saturday, a woman believed to be Yolanda Rivera was seen crumpled on the ground near Lake Piru in Ventura where her daughter went missing.

"My name is Heather Morris, I'm Nayas close friend and co-worker, and I'm trying to conduct an on foot search and rescue mission along with a small group of friends at Lake Piru", Morris tweeted at the Ventura County Sheriff's Office. "I$3 want to help in any way".

The "Baby Daddy" star posted a heartbreaking message to his ex-girlfriend, who is presumed dead after she went missing on Wednesday afternoon when her 4-year-old son Josey was found alone on a boat on Lake Piru in California, where he admitted he had always "wished" for the day they could be together again.

Police are now in the fourth day of hunting for the star, but have encountered difficulty finding her body due to the lake's murky waters.

Authorities are even using sonar equipment and advanced robot cameras to facilitate the search for Naya's body.

According to People, they have been visiting the site of Rivera's disappearance each day. The Sheriff's department confirmed that searching beyond the lake, in surrounding cabins, outbuildings and other areas has been part of the ongoing search effort since Wednesday.

Rivera and Morris both found fame on "Glee", where they started as supporting players but quickly became fan favorites. "We need your love and light". ⁣ ⁣ I ask everyone reading this to please lift up, along with the entire Rivera family, Ryan and Josey in prayer and to respect what they are going through during this time. More co-stars have since shared their grief.

Jackée Harry, who appeared in the sitcom The Royal Family, posted a clip of her acting alongside Rivera.
