UPDATE: Ventura County Sheriff Department 3 p.m. EST
No foul play is suspected at this time. There is footage of her and her son Josey boarding the boat alone.
The boat was overdue for rental at 4 p.m., so an employee went to go search for her. That is when they found Josey sleeping alone on the boat and called authorities. The child said his mom went swimming, and she didn't come back up. He had on a life vest, and an adult life vest was still on the boat, along with Rivera's purse and ID.
Search efforts began immediately, and continued until 10 p.m. Wednesday. They began again at dawn this morning, and will continue until sunset.
