“I understand your team is doing EVERYTHING in their power, but we are feeling helpless, powerless and want to help during anyway. I have left a message with the Department of Rescue and Air today, and I will call again tomorrow. Thank you,” she added.

Morris has been staying connected to all officials part of the operation and updating her followers as well.

“Thank you to the Tulare County, Los Angeles County, San Louis Obisbo, and all who are working to tirelessly right now in the search and recovery of our Naya,” she tweeted earlier on Thursday.

Rivera, 33, went missing after a boat ride last week on Wednesday with her son. Her four-year-old was found unaccompanied on a boat telling people how his mother had gone for a swim but never came back.

Officer Chris Dyer of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said earlier: “We’re presuming that an accident happened, we’re presuming that she drowned in the lake. There are no signs of foul play, no signs that anything went wrong, besides a tragic accident.”
