Rivera and her son are said to have swam in the lake, only the boy got back on the boat.

According to Captain Eric Buschow, a spokesman for the Ventura County Sheriff's Office, the authorities believe that Rivera has "probably drowned" and a search has been launched to locate her body.

A search and rescue team and a helicopter with a drone were sent to the scene to aid the search.

Buschow said to reporters, “They were seen together on the lake in the early afternoon, and about three hours after they left the dock, another boater on the lake discovered that the boat was sleeping with the (son) on board.

“So they contacted the rangers and started an investigation, and we've been actively looking for the mother ever since. We have both a flight search and our diving team.

"There is evidence that we believe she went into the lake. At this point it is still a search and we know that so far.

& # 39; The (son) said that she had swum with her mother and that she had got back on the boat and her mother had not.

"We know that the girl was wearing a life jacket. Another adult life jacket was found on the boat. It is a little difficult to interview a three year old.

"We think she went into the water and we couldn't find her. This can be a case of drowning.

& # 39; This is a large reservoir, it is deep, such things happen. We don't know all the circumstances. Investigators are working on it and getting as much information as possible.
