Divers are searching a Florida pond after a witness said an alligator attacked a woman walking her dogs and dragged her into the water.

In a Sun Sentinel report, Davie Police major Dale Engle said the woman's dogs would not leave the pond as divers searched for her on Friday morning.

Maj Engle said one of the dogs also was bitten by the alligator.

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

Authorities have closed the park.
