RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Police are investigating a bomb threat that prompted the closure of the terminal at Dinwiddie County Airport.

Virginia State Police say no suspicious device was found.

The incident occurred Sunday afternoon at the airport about 20 miles south of Richmond.

State police say a man told an airport worker that there was a bomb inside the terminal.

The terminal was closed during the search. But the airport wasn't evacuated and the runways remained open.

Police are searching for the man.
