Pictures of two-year-old Lane Graves who tragically drowned after he was taken by an alligator have emerged.
Orange County Sheriff Jerry confirmed the body was recovered around 3.30pm from the man-made Seven Seas Lagoon near Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Parents Matt and Melissa Graves, from Nebraska, were on holiday in Orlando with their children.
The alligator dragged the boy into the lake on Tuesday night while he was playing on the waters edge of a 'no swimming' area. After more than 15 hours of searching, his body was recovered ‘in tact’.
Witnesses described the alligator as being between 1.2 and 2.1 metres long.
During the search it was reported that five alligators were captured and euthanised.
Orlando Sheriff Demings said 'this type of thing' had never happened before.
Disney has closed all resort beaches until further notice.
