Police are searching for a woman after an alligator reportedly dragged her into a pond on Friday morning.

Davie Police said the witness told them the woman was walking her dogs before she was grabbed by the alligator.

"One of her dogs got bit by the gator", Engle said, adding that divers are now searching for the woman. The dog has since been taken in by animal control, WSVN said.

"Divers are searching", Davie Police Maj Dale Engle was quoted as saying by the Sun Sentinel newspaper. "At this time, we haven't had any reports of anybody missing other than [a] witness, who saw her earlier and then never saw her again", Gallinal admits.

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