MONROE- The FBI said it has no suspects after a note was found on an airplane suggesting it was going to explode when it landed at the airport in this north Louisiana city.

The threat prompted the closure of the airport for much of the day and forced landing planes to divert to other airports.

A search of the plane found no explosives.

Fifteen passengers and three crew members were onboard the commuter jet, operated by American Eagle.

The plane was making a scheduled landing in Monroe after leaving Dallas when the note was found.
