Authorities in Chicago searched a plane arriving from Detroit today amid reports of a suspicious package.

But a Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman says the plane was deemed safe after the search.

Chicago police checked the plane while a hazardous materials team remained on stand by.

A Southwest spokeswoman says the 117 passengers and five crew members all got off the plane before it was searched.

After the search, the plane was going to continue on to Nashville, Tennessee.
