It is unlikely that a 2-year-old boy pulled by an alligator into a lake at a Disney World resort will be found alive, authorities 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. Tuesday.

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 boy "until there is a resolution."
