On Thursday, officials switched their mission from search and rescue to a recovery operation.

CCTV footage released by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office shows Naya and Josey arriving in her black Mercedes SUV at the lake.

The pair then make their way to the boat rental area and can then be seen getting on board.

The boat then sails off on to the lake and soon after Naya went for a swim but hasn’t been seen again.

A 911 call that was made to report Rivera missing was released by police, who said employees at the boat rental shop made the call after finding Rivera’s son alone on the boat after she didn’t return it within the three-hour rental period.

Investigators with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said on Thursday that more than 100 personnel were searching for Rivera after she vanished in what they said “may well be a case of drowning.”

The actress might have “drowned in what appears to be a tragic accident,” Sergeant Kevin Donoghue said during a press conference.

Officials said that Rivera’s son, Josey Hollis Dorsey — who was found alone on their rental boat in Lake Piro on Wednesday afternoon — told them that he and his mother were swimming in the lake.

The boy said that while he returned to the boat, Rivera never did.

Her child “gave enough information to investigators to conclude that Naya never made it out of water,” Donoghue said.

Authorities said it’s unclear how long it could take to find a body in the water — which is not entirely visible — but said Rivera is presumed dead.

If Rivera’s body is “entangled in something under the water, the body might never come up,” Donoghue said on Thursday.
