A threatening note scrawled on a bathroom mirror prompted police to search a Thai Airways jet for bombs after the plane landed at Los Angeles International Airport.

No bombs were found and now FBI investigators are trying to determine who wrote the hoax note.

The incident occurred on a Thai Airways flight en route to Los Angeles from Bangkok.

After Flight 794 landed safely at LAX, the plane was taken to a remote area where it was met by police and FBI agents, including bomb technicians and canine units. The Los Angeles fire department also had 18 trucks and engines on standby.




"Investigators who conducted a thorough search of the aircraft, luggage and cargo found no evidence to suggest a credible threat to the aircraft existed," Laura Eimiller of the FBI's Los Angeles office tells CNN.

The plane's passengers and crew were interviewed, but no arrests were made.

Luggage on the flight was also rescreened.

Thai Airways president Piyasvasti Amranand told The Associated Press the message on the bathroom mirror was written in English with bad grammar.

"It sounds like it was done by a crazy person," Amranand says.

According to a statement by Thai Airways, there were 171 passengers and 18 crew members on board the flight.
