Authorities told the media that signs reading “no swimming” are posted in the area of the incident and alligators are known to roam the area. The attack took place around 9pm Tuesday evening. Four alligators have been pulled from the lagoon and examined and there is no evidence those alligators had contact with the child.

“Right now we’re going to bring in some fresh eyes and continue with the search,” said Jeff Williamson, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. “Prepare for the worst, hope for the best.”
