/ LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL (RNN) – It is unlikely that a child pulled by an alligator into a lake at a Disney World resort Tuesday night will be found alive, the officials said early Wednesday.

The alligator, which witnesses said was between 4 and 7 feet long, dragged the child into a large lake adjacent to the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa around 9:30 p.m. EST Tuesday, officials said.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings. said more than 50 law enforcement personnel are either on the water or on the shore and will search for the child “until there is a resolution.” He said there was no security video recording the area at the time of the incident.

The sheriff’s department is working with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in the search.
