The bomb threat that forced the closing of the Statue of Liberty was a false alarm, according to the NYPD. Liberty Island, where the statue stands in New York Harbor, remains closed until the investigation is complete. The NYPD bomb squad is searching all the lockers on the premises.
A 911 call made late this morning contained the threat to blow up the statue. Thousands of tourists were made to evacuate the island.
