Newark police give all-clear

[Updated at 2:18 p.m.] Police in Newark said during a briefing that there was no bomb found in a vehicle parked near a Newark overpass.

Officials did say however they were still looking for the person who owned the car - to see if it was a hoax that attempted to bring police to the scene.

[Posted at 12:42 p.m.] A "possible explosive device" is being investigated in a Dodge vehicle parked near a railroad overpass, Newark Police Director Garry McCarthy tells CNN’s Allan Chernoff.

McCarthy told CNN that there are two gas containers and wires in the vehicle, located just off McCarter Highway in Newark, New Jersey. He stressed there are wires in the vehicle, but he is not saying the containers are "wired."

Two robots are at the scene as part of the bomb squad.

Train service has not been affected, New Jersey Transit spokesman Dan Stessel told CNN.
