911 call released from moments after 12-foot alligator dragged Shizuka Matsuki to her death

The 911 call has been released from the harrowing moments after a Florida woman is believed to have been dragged to her death into the clutches of an alligator.

"I think an alligator got this lady," the caller said.

Shizuka Matsuki, 47, is believed to have been walking her dogs in Silver Lake Nature Rotary Park last Friday when, per a witness, she was there one moment and gone the next. 

"Her two dogs came running back out to the parking lot," said the caller. " And I walked all the way to the back of the park and one dog is still hanging out in the water and I seen a huge alligator."

Matsuki's remains were found late last Friday night, WSVN reported. The 47-year-old's arm was reportedly found inside a gator that was pulled from the water where she disappeared earlier that morning. 

The gator was trapped and removed from a lake in the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park in Davie, the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

The witness had seen the woman walking her dogs near the water. He later saw the pets at the water's edge without their owner, which is when he called 911.

"She's nowhere to be found," the caller said.
