SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Officials at a Utah high school evacuated after a bomb threat amid a wave of similar threats around the country say they’ve found no evidence of explosives.

Murray School District spokeswoman D. Wright said Murray High School students were sent home and police called in after the school outside Salt Lake City received what sounded like an automated or recorded phone call. Wright says when a school official asked a question, the recording repeated and then the call hung up.

Nothing was found after police conducted a three-hour search using bomb-sniffing dogs. The school re-opened for evening activities.

The Utah threat came as schools from New England to Wisconsin, California and the United Kingdom reported similar threats. An elementary Colorado was evacuated after getting an automated phone message.
