Although authorities havent yet found the swimmer, the original call was "credible", said Jeff Williamson, a spokesman for the Sheriffs Office.
Officials say the body is a female in her late teens, early twenties, possibly Hispanic or black, there was no damage to the body or signs of trauma due to gator bites.
People who live by that pond said they keep their distance because its infested with alligators. It was unclear as of Wednesday afternoon, however, if an alligator was in fact involved in the incident, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Chad Weber said.

After carefully considering this requirement, the Commission on energy of the state on Wednesday, may 9, approved it. That's more than double the cost of utility-scale solar systems, which range from 4.4 to 6.6 cents.
Search crews said Thursday they discovered a body while searching for a teen male they believed had been attacked by an alligator, but they found the body of a woman instead. Deputies received a call about noon Wednesday from a man who said he saw a boy struggling in the water and screamed, "It bit me". The teen eventually went underwater and didn't resurface. "Witness made a good call when they saw someone go down", Williamson told Fox News.
Rescuers were on the scene in minutes and searched the pond for hours until finally calling off the search at 8 p.m., Wednesday. I've seen a guy go one day with a baby carriage and a battery with his two teenage sons because they had a boat hidden in the woods with an electric motor and they were going fishing. "It was bound to happen sooner or later", resident Ruben Perez said.
