Orange County Sheriff's spokesman Jeff Williamson claimed in a Thursday early morning e-mail that the maritime machine found the body. However, he did not confirm if it was the teen who went missing on Wednesday.

According to officials, a person reported thrashing in the water Wednesday afternoon.

A witness who lives nearby told deputies that a teenage male had been struggling to stay afloat while yelling, "It bit me", multiple times.

He said the retention pond is known to be home to several alligators and crews spotted at least one during their search on Wednesday. Nothing was found in the water.

Authorities have not located the teen just yet, but Williamson said the call was "credible", according to the Orlando Sentinel. "It would come out and he was swimming towards me and I was like, 'See you later".

Rescue crews in Florida found a body in an alligator-infested pond after a report that a teenager went missing.

Police in central Florida now state a body present in a alligator-infested pond can be really a lady and there aren't any indicators of trauma for her body.

"Somebody cut that open (the fence and) people ride bikes back there and everything". "It could be days, literally", Williamson said. "I stopped doing that about a year ago, once that gator got way too big and aggressive", said resident Luis Cadiz.

The neighbors say they try to keep their distance from the water because of the gators around the lake.
