Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday was called back to The White House canceling a scheduled event in New Hampshire over an unspecified emergency, according to reports.

Air Force 2 was expected to land in Manchester, New Hampshire around 11:30 a.m., when he was asked to come back to Washington DC, according to WMUR 9. After the report broke, Pence’s press secretary Alyssa Farah sent out a tweet saying that “something came up” and that Pence is required to be in D.C. Farah added that there is “no cause for alarm.”

Farah sent out another tweet, not long after her first, saying Pence “never left Washington, DC.” She also said “There was no ’emergency callback.'”
