Law enforcement agents 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 say a suspicious vehicle was reported on the first level outside of the main terminal.

Airport officials say the vehicle was in a parking area not accessible to the general public and that canine officers had “alerted” on it.

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.
