Police in Davie are looking for a woman who may have been dragged into a pond by a gator on Friday morning. Borrelli said the woman's husband, who is out of town and trying to fly home, sent him to the park to get more information after being contacted by Davie Police.

Raw video: Police in Davie, Florida search for woman who was allegedly taken by gator into lake while walking her dog. Police therefore are operating under the theory that the woman was grabbed by a gator.

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

The Davie Police Department has not yet returned Fox News' request for further comment.

"Her dogs won't leave the pond".

Trappers have spotted an alligator in the pond that is about 12 feet long and were watching it, Gallinal said.

"This tragedy is heartbreaking for everyone involved, and our honest condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim at this time", the FWC said in a statement.

Myrna Bernard and her daughter Rachel Bernard, 18, live south of the pond and said alligator sightings are not rare.

Residents said this lake is a unsafe place to walk.

"We can't call the dive team in until they capture the gator", Engle said. "It could have been me or my kids out here and an alligator come out of nowhere", witness Patricia Ramsaran told WSVN.

Ramsaran noted that there are many alligators in this lake but said there aren't signs warning the public that these animals are in the area. "One of her dogs got bit by the gator".

Neighbours told local media that they have seen children swimming in the lakes. They're at least 8-, 9-foot alligators. "The ranger has told me be careful".

Florida was the scene of a fatal alligator attack in June 2016.

Alligators are found in all 67 of Florida's counties, according to the FWC. Since 1948, there have been 300 incidents when alligators have bitten people, and 22 have died.
