New York officials have found suspicious wires in a bathroom onboard a flight that was returned to Kennedy International airport, but no explosive device was found.
New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne says Delta Flight 126 bound for Madrid was returned to the gate and evacuated Thursday after a report of a suspicious device aboard. The flight took off at 8 p.m. and it landed around 10 p.m.
Officials briefly questioned a male and female passenger and released them.
Authorities say wires were found in the lavatory that apparently did not belong to the plane.
It's not clear how many people were on board. A call to Delta was not immediately returned.
