A bomb threat found on a Knotts Island ferry early today halted service temporarily while bomb experts from Virginia Beach searched and cleared both vessels.
An employee found the bomb threat at 5:30 a.m. on the vessel Gov. Hunt written on what appeared to be piece of legal pad paper, said Randall Edwards, spokesman for Currituck County. The vessel Ocracoke was also cleared.
“No evidence of any type of bomb or bomb-making materials was found on either vessel,” Edwards said.
