The Associated Press

LAWTON (AP) — Authorities say a bomb threat was called in to the Lawton-Fort Sill Regional Airport early Monday, but nothing suspicious was found at the facility.

Lawton television station KSWO reports that someone called the airport and said he heard some kids talking about a bomb. Police say the caller then hung up.

Authorities say a flight had just landed from Dallas and passengers were ordered to stay inside the aircraft for about 30 minutes as police searched the airport and property.

Authorities say police did not find anything suspicious in their search of the airport. The threat remains under investigation.
