The evacuation was prompted by a passenger who made it through a TSA screening at Miami International Airport with luggage that FBI officials claimed contained something suspicious.
Police said the FBI took over and shut down a section of that airport.
Upon locating the passenger, they found nothing dangerous.
The heightened alert came in the wake of a Russian plane crash in Egypt believed to be taken down by a bomb.
