A search was ongoing Wednesday afternoon for a missing teenage boy after a possible alligator attack, CBS affiliate WKMG reports.

A water rescue is underway Wednesday for a teenage boy seen flailing in a large retention pond in Orlando while screaming, "It bit me!"

A person who officials described as a credible witness told deputies they heard a male say "he bit me".

Wildlife officials said there are alligators in the water, but there is no indication that an alligator was involved in this incident.

Authorities plan to search the pond until the teen is found or the search is called off.

Orange County Fire-Rescue is searching the lake in a residential neighborhood in east Orlando for any signs of the 15-year-old boy.

Video from a news helicopter showed at least three boats searching the north side of the pond near a canal. "Time to go, '" Perez said Jeff Williamson with Orange County Sheriff's Office said deputies have also knocked on doors in the area asking if anyone they knew was missing. He said the teen was about 20 yards from shore. "It was bound to happen sooner or later", resident Ruben Perez said.
