SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) — Police say the search for bombs is over at a Southern California high school and nothing suspicious was found, despite a bomb threat from an AWOL Navy corpsman that forced a school-wide evacuation.

Orange County sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino told The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/oefDCt ) that a five and a half hour search on Wednesday didn’t turn up any explosives or devices.

The search and evacuation came in response to a note that was found in the barracks of 22-year-old Daniel Morgan Wednesday morning after he didn’t report for duty. The note included a threat directed at the school

About 3,200 students and 180 faculty members were told to leave the school’s buildings on the first day of school while police searched for bombs.

Morgan surrendered to military authorities Wednesday afternoon.
