"It bit me!" said the Orange County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff's office states it does not have any report of a woman who's gone missing.

The recovery of the body comes a day after a teenager who was said to be yelling and flailing before sinking into the water, witnesses told Fox 4 in Fort Myers.

The body was recovered at approximately 6:30 a.m. Thursday morning about 15 to 20 yards from where a resident reported seeing someone flailing in the water on Wednesday. "He went into his home and got some binoculars".

Crews searched an Orlando pond on Wednesday. Wolfe says it was terrifying to watch.

"My understanding is that is not large enough to take a grown man down", Williamson said.




"It would come out, and the tail go like that and he was swimming towards me and I was like, 'See you later".

Officials say the body is a female in her late teens, early twenties, possibly Hispanic or black, there was no damage to the body or signs of trauma due to gator bites.

Neighbors said alligators have moved into the pond over the past several years.

People who live by that pond said they keep their distance because its infested with alligators. He saw an alligator in the area two days ago. "He watched them and watched them until the individual went down", added Williamson.

A 15-year-old is believed to be missing in a possible gator attack at a lake in Orlando, Florida. "He was taking his boys back there to fish", explained Ruben Perez.
