UPDATE: Florida Sheriff says toddler who was dragged into a lake at a Disney resort in Florida was Lane Graves.
The two-year-old's body was found intact by divers about 10-15 yards away from shore in 6-feet deep water.
The Fish and Wildlife officials say they are working to learn from this incident and ensure it never happens again.
Officials say Disney has been extremely cooperative. The family was playing near a beach like area with the two and four-year-old when the toddler was snatched by the gator and drug into the water.

"As a parent and a grandparent, my heart goes out to the Graves family during this time of devastating loss. My thoughts and prayers are with them, and I know everyone at Disney joins me in offering our deepest sympathies,"

-Robert A. Iger, Disney chairman and CEO, said in a statement.

Officials are now looking at the five gators they've taken to see if they are the one involved in the attack. They say they will not stop until the gator is caught.
A press conference is scheduled for 1 p.m. in the case of a child believed to be taken by an alligator in Florida.
Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings says Walt Disney World has been providing "amazing" support as they search for the body of a 2-year-old boy who was snatched by an alligator.
Experienced alligator trappers, sheriff's department divers and sonar equipment are being used to search a network of man-made canals, ponds and lakes where the gator may have taken the boy.
The sheriff says that after 15 hours of searching, the attack is "certainly not survivable at this point."
Demings says Disney has never had anything like this happen in 45 years of operations. He says the theme parks' wildlife management system works diligently to keep guests safe from dangerous Florida creatures, removing or killing any alligators they find.
