The missing case of ‘Glee’ star Naya Rivera continues to haunt fans as rescue workers nor police have been able to find any information about her after the star was presumed dead following her trip to Lake Peru with her four-year-old son Josey. 

The latest development in her investigation is that the search is now being carried out with the help of search dogs and underwater divers. As multiple attempts have failed to give any results, one of Rivera’s closest friends and 'Glee' costar Heather Morris has decided to organize a rescue mission with the help of other friends and family. She took to Twitter to express that she was feeling "powerless" despite the extensive search. Heather, shared a tweet today, July 12, that read, “My name is Heather Morris, I'm Nayas close friend and co-worker, and I'm trying to conduct an on-foot search and rescue mission along with a small group of friends at Lake Piru. I understand your team is doing EVERYTHING in their power, but we are feeling helpless, powerless and want to help in any way. I have left a message with the department of Rescue and Air today, and I will call again tomorrow. Thank you.”
