ORLANDO, Fla. (WESH) — Authorities say nothing alarming was found after they conducted a search at Orlando International Airport in response to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the area.
The Orlando Police Department tweeted Wednesday that no threat was found at the airport.
Airport officials said a suspicious vehicle was reported around 9:30 a.m. on the first level outside of the main terminal. Officials said two canines alerted on the vehicle, which was located in a parking lot that is not accessible to the general public.
An airport canine team swept the area and Orlando police cleared the scene just before 11:30 a.m.
The airport remained open during the investigation and officials said they were working to “minimize impact to travelers” while officers investigate.
The search came a week after a mentally-distressed man went to the Orlando airport with a fake gun in an attempt at what officials call “suicide by cop.” He was taken into custody and nobody was harmed.
