ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Police in North Carolina are looking for a "person of interest" after what was described as an explosive device was found at an airport.
Authorities at Asheville Regional Airport initially said the package found on the curb near the baggage claim area on Friday was made to look like an explosive device.
FBI spokeswoman Shelley Lynch later said the package included explosive materials. She said she couldn't elaborate on what the package looked like.
The Asheville Police Department's Hazardous Device Team responded to the package and disabled it.
The main road into the airport was closed for about two hours. Officials also ordered an evacuation of a portion of the main terminal.
