Body found after witness reports seeing teenager sinking in Orlando pond

Body found after witness reports seeing teenager sinking in Orlando pond

Even the Orange County Sheriff's Office tweeted Thursday the lady has never been understood and deputies do not understand how she made to the fenced-off pond.

Deputies have found a body in the retention pond where a missing teen was possibly attacked by an alligator.

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.

Chad Weber, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, told Fox 4 the case was being treated as a missing person and "possible drowning", but not yet as an alligator attack. The teen eventually went underwater and didn't resurface.

Search and rescue teams searched the lake by boat Wednesday afternoon.

Authorities in Orange County, Florida, are searching for a 15-year-old who was reportedly dragged into a local pond by an alligator on Wednesday.

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.

Authorities have not located the teen just yet, but Williamson said the call was "credible", according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Ruben Perez lives a block away from the retention pond.

People who live in the neighborhood say alligators are a common site on the pond. He says he saw what he thought was a teenage boy struggling to stay afloat before disappearing beneath the water.
