A bomb threat that halted a commuter plane shortly before it was to take off with 33 people on board Friday morning appears to have been a hoax, authorities said. No explosives were found on the American Eagle plane that was parked at the Toledo airport, authorities said. Authorities had believed a passenger from the plane reported the threat in a cell phone call to emergency operators around 10:30 a.m., but FBI spokesman Scott Wilson said officials had determined the call did not come from the plane.
