Authorities search for AWOL airman in high school bomb threat
The airman is considered AWOL, and military officials are now looking for him. He has not been identified, and his exact whereabouts are not known.
So far, no explosives have been found.
Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman Jim Amormino told KABC-TV that authorities were searching for a Camp Pendleton Marine. The threat was apparently contained in a note found in the Marine's barracks.
San Clemente school officials have cleared the school of students and staff as officials look for explosives.
The students and adults were moved to a nearby school stadium and officials were urging parents not to come to the school to collect their children.
The school district has established a hot line for parents: (949) 234-5575.
