Matsuki's body was located Saturday in the Davie lake, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

Residents of a South Florida homeowner's association received an alligator warning just two days before a woman was attacked and killed by an alligator while walking her dogs.

The woman was last seen walking her dogs near Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park near Ft.

"We will also be implementing a public information campaign with our residents to remind them of these natural hazards", noting that the nature park will remain closed until the signage is installed. The witness told police the woman was gone the next time she looked, but the dogs were still there, the TV station said. One of the dogs had a fresh injury, a gash on its side.

"It's not uncommon for her to go there", Peter Limia, a neighbor told the Sun Sentinel, adding that Matsuki and her husband, Yukio, regularly walked her three dogs within the gated Isla del Sol community.

"This tragedy is heartbreaking for everyone involved, and our honest condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim at this time", Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Rob Klepper told KPLG-TV. "We will be conducting a thorough investigation into this incident", the commission tweeted.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said that a 12-foot, 6-inch alligator was caught and killed after Matsuki was attacked and killed.

Jim Borrelli, a friend of Matsuki, said she and her husband have walked their dogs in the park previously.

One thing hampering the search is divers can't go into the water until the alligator is captured, Engle said.

Florida wildlife officials have logged 401 "unprovoked bite incidents" from 1948 to 2017, according to a fact sheet published in 2017.

Before Matsuki's death, the most recent fatality was in June 2016, when a Nebraska boy whose family was visiting the Walt Disney World Resort was snatched by an alligator and pulled into a lake at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
