WAVERLY (KWWL) -

The Director of News and Community Relations Saul Shapiro says the bomb search at Wartburg College is complete, and no bomb was found.

The Saemann Student Center at Wartburg was evacuated around 7 p.m.

The college's information desk received a phone call from a male. The caller said there was a bomb in the building, then immediately hung up.

Wartburg Security, Waverly Police, Waverly Fire, and the Iowa State Patrol searched the building, but found nothing.

Student's bags that were left in the building were taken to Neumann Auditorium where students picked them up later.

The search was completed around 9:30 p.m.
