A dog-walker in the USA state of Florida has gone missing, and she was attacked by an alligator, a witness told police.

Local media report officers found a dog on a leash but no signs of the woman at Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park.

Trappers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are at the scene, looking for the alligator. Its presence is hindering search efforts, Engle said.

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

Authorities closed the park Friday.

Sharon Estupinan said a park ranger warned her to walk her dogs farther away from the water's edge after she saw a 10-foot (3-meter) gator in the pond three days ago.

Authorities are searching a lake in South Florida after a witness called police saying an alligator attacked a woman walking her dog in a park. "I don't think he could really hide".

Despite the reptiles' widespread presence, only 22 people have died in alligator attacks in Florida since 1948.

Fatal attacks on humans remain rare, however. The most recent death occurred in 2016, when a 2-year-old boy playing near the water's edge at a Walt Disney World resort was killed.
