ORLANDO, Fla. (CBS Connecticut) _ The airline jetBlue reported a security issue involving one of their planes that departed from Providence and landed in Orlando.

Authorities say an airline cleaning crew on-board the aircraft found some sort of threatening note that may have indicated a bomb was on board.

The plane’s fuselage was later inspected and the search turned up nothing.

Currently no threat exists, but the FBI is investigating.

An initial report from jetBlue mistakenly identified the flight’s departure airport as Bradley International, but that was later corrected.
