“They were seen going out on the lake together in the early afternoon, and approximately three hours after they left the dock another boater out on the lake discovered the boat drifting with the [son] on board asleep” said Captain Eric Buschow, a spokesman for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office.
He added: “Indications are that we believe she did go in the lake. At this point it’s still a search and that’s what we know up to this point. The [son] said that she had been swimming with her mother and that she got back in the boat and [his] mum didn’t. We know that the girl had a life vest on, there was another adult life vest on the boat. It’s somewhat challenging interviewing a three-year-old. We’re going on the belief that she did go in the water, and we’ve not been able to locate her. This may well be a case of drowning.”
One of Naya’s most recent posts on Instagram she encouraged her fans by writing: “No matter the year, circumstance, or strife everyday you’re alive is a blessing. Make the most of today and every day you are given. Tomorrow is not promised.”
