The body of a Florida lady who went missing on Friday was discovered just hours following some of her remains have been discovered inside an alligator, officials mentioned on Saturday.

The lady, identified as Shizuka Matsuki, 47, of Plantation, Fla., was last observed walking her dogs near a lake in the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park in Davie, about 25 miles north of Miami, on Friday morning, the Davie Police Department stated.

A man saw her walking her dogs there, and then minutes later saw the dogs operating loose, one of them injured, reported WPLG, a nearby ABC affiliate. He called the police.

The man &ldquowent to the region where he thought that they had been walking, and he immediately spotted an alligator,&rdquo said Detective Viviana Gallinal..

There are an estimated 1.three million alligators in Florida &mdash they reside in each and every of the state&rsquos 67 counties and can be located in nearly all its fresh and brackish water bodies &mdash but attacks are rare.

The likelihood of a Florida resident being seriously injured in the course of an unprovoked alligator attack is about 1 in three.two million, the commission said on its site.

There have been 401 unprovoked alligator bites between 1948 and 2017, the commission stated, and of those 24 resulted in fatalities. Over the last 10 years, Florida averaged six bites per year that have been significant adequate to require professional health-related treatment.

The most current death in Florida happened in 2016, when a 2-year-old boy was snatched by an alligator although playing in a lagoon at a Disney resort. He died of drowning and traumatic injuries.

Final year, a ten-year-old girl narrowly escaped an alligator attack in Orlando.

&ldquoShe was capable to pry the alligator&rsquos mouth open and take away her leg,&rdquo a spokeswoman for the commission mentioned at the time.

Residents are advised to stay away from feeding alligators, keep a safe distance and make positive pets keep on a leash, away from the water&rsquos edge. Dogs are specifically eye-catching to alligators.

&ldquoAlligators are opportunistic feeders and will consume animals that are readily available to them,&rdquo the commission&rsquos fact sheet says. &ldquoThey favor to go right after prey they can overpower very easily. Chance is the primary element that causes an alligator to pursue prey.&rdquo
