A woman is missing after a reported alligator attack in Davie Florida

Police are investigating a possible alligator attack in Davie, Florida.

Dale Engle told the Sun Sentinel divers are now searching Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park in Davie for the woman, who has not yet been identified.

A witness told police he saw a woman walking two dogs and then noticed the dogs were barking near the water, but without her, Davie police Detective Viviana Gallinal said later in the morning.

Police responding to the scene say they found a dog on a leash but could not find its owner.

"Divers are searching", Davie Police Maj Dale Engle was quoted as saying by the Sun Sentinel newspaper.

"Her dogs won't leave the pond". Its presence is hindering search efforts, Engle said.




The woman's dogs have been handed over to animal control for the time being.

The park is near the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, a major Miami-area tourist and entertainment attraction.

Authorities closed the park Friday.

Anyone who believes an alligator is posing a "threat to people, pets or property" should call FWC's toll-free hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR, Snapp said. "It's sad to hear someone got hit by the gator", he said.

The reptiles are "opportunistic feeders" that live in all of the state's 67 counties, according to Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission website. Since 1948, there have been 300 incidents when alligators have bitten people, and 22 have died.
