DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A woman who told an Ohio airport worker about a bomb, which ended up halting flights at Washington Reagan National Airport, said she had received a message from God.

No explosives were found Sunday aboard a plane that flew from Dayton to Washington, D.C. The Washington airport was shut down for about 20 minutes.

Dayton airport director Terrence Slaybaugh tells the Dayton Daily News that the 54-year-old Shelbyville, Ky., woman indicated God sent her a message, which she relayed to a ticket agent in Dayton. Slaybaugh says the woman said the US Airways flight had a bomb on board and people would die.

FBI Special Agent Michael Brooks tells The Associated Press no charges have been filed. The woman is at a mental health facility.
