Update: Body of boy found

… the Orlando police confirmed the body has been found and identified the toddler’s name as Lane Graves.

Efforts are continuing to find the child.

The child was on the edge of the lagoon when the alligator dragged him into the water, according to the boy’s family, said Florida Fish & Wildlife executive director Nick Wiley. He cautioned that the investigation is still in an early stage and that officials need to interview at least two other families who may have witnessed the incident.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said the child was “wading … along the lake’s edge at the time that the alligator attacked.”

Williamson said the boy was in less than a foot of water.
