Glee actress Heather Morris pleaded with authorities to join the search for former co-star Naya Rivera on Sunday saying she feels helpless amid her disappearance.Morris, who played Rivera’s love interest on Glee, said she and a “small group of friends” want to conduct an on-foot search to find the actress, who vanished while boating last week in Lake Piru in Ventura County.
“I understand your team is doing EVERYTHING in their power, but we are feeling helpless, powerless and want to help in any way,” Morris wrote to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office on Twitter.
“I have left a message with the department of Rescue and Air today, and I will call again tomorrow. Thank you.” she continued.

The 33-year-old Rivera was reported missing Wednesday after she took out a rented boat with her 4-year-old son, Josey Dorsey, in the lake, about 90 kilometres northwest of downtown Los Angeles.
When they didn’t return to shore, her son was discovered alone on the vessel with Rivera nowhere to be found, authorities said.
Search crews are on day five of searching for Rivera, who is presumed to have accidentally drowned in the lake.
Over the weekend, police released footage showing the underwater visibility of the water.
A video posted on the department’s Twitter page Friday shows the murky depths of the reservoir, with it tough to make out anything other than a large tree limb.
At a Friday evening press conference, Captain Eric Buschow explained that the department has brought in “specialised equipment,” including a sonar system, to help in the search.
“What they do is they go out and they tow these devices in the water that scan the bottom of the lake for any objects that might look like a body,” Buschow said.
“Last night, they had a couple of images that showed up on the sonar that they thought might be promising to investigate. This morning, they sent an ROV, or a small robotic device, down into the water to examine those objects. Unfortunately, they did not locate Naya Rivera. They are still searching.
“We’re still continuing the search and we appreciate everybody’s co-operation.
“We know everyone’s concerned out there about this case and locating her and providing some closure for her family.”
Buschow said he’s confident that Rivera’s body will be found.
