Actor Tahj Mowry shared an open letter to actress Naya Rivera on Instagram. Rivera is presumed dead after going missing last Wednesday (July 9th) from Lake Piru in California. A search for her is currently underway. Her four year old son Josey, who was on the boat with her, was found safe.

Tahj wrote via Instagram, “My sweet Naya –- to say that I am devastated would be an understatement. This is a nightmare. Everyday gets harder. However, I am holding onto hope that you will be found. We grew up together. We became adults together. We experienced so many firsts together."

He continued, "You were my first experience with everything; love, intimacy, heartbreak. We broke each others hearts and then mended them back together…more than once.”

He added, “I will never not think of you. No woman has ever measured up what you gave me or how you made me feel. I’ve never liked to admit it but I have never stopped loving you. A part of me always wished for the day where God would bring us back together to be what we dreamt we could have been.”

He ended his letter by sending prayers to Naya's family, which he refers to as his "forever family."
