"One of her dogs got bit by the gator", Davie Police Maj. "He could not find the woman that was walking the dogs, so he called for police assistance, and we're still looking for her", Davie Police Detective Viviana Gallinal said immeditelly following the incident. Her husband, who is out of town, has been told his wife went missing after walking the dogs.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission believes the woman is deceased, and they have shifted from search to a recovery mode.

The dogs have been turned over to animal control. They now believe she did not survive. This is a developing story. "So you're not shocked this happened, not at all, but heartbreaking", Ramasaran said.

Trappers spotted the animal in the pond and captured it before it was euthanized, FWC officials said. Borrelli said he was also asked to break the news to the couple's son, who is in his 20s and lives in NY.

The park where the woman disappeared Friday is near the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, a major Miami-area tourist and entertainment attraction.

Authorities closed the park Friday.

Friends of Matsuki said that she was a wonderful woman who loved to cook.

Residents said this lake is a unsafe place to walk.

"There is plenty of gators in this lake". I'm out here all the time with my kids and my husband. As a result, all 67 of Florida's counties have alligators, and people who live in the state can expect to see them.

They're at least 8-, 9-foot alligators. Dale Engle told the Sun-Sentinel. "My son threw the bread in the water to feed the little fish there and as we walked away, that gator was there in a heartbeat".

Jeff Pohlman, assistants park director, told the Sun Sentinel that the city had hired three trappers in the last 18 month to two years to catch an alligator seen at the lake, but they hadn't been successful. Borrelli said he was asked to go to the park to get more information. Twenty-two bites have resulted in death, the agency said.
