New York’s iconic Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island were evacuated Friday after reports of a suspicious package inside a locker, according to a senior law enforcement official and the National Park Service.

The evacuation followed a phoned bomb threat, the official said.

About 2 p.m. Friday, the locker that reportedly contained the suspicious package had been cleared by police.


The locker was empty. Other lockers were being checked as a precautionary measure, the law enforcement source said.

Images posted on social media showed crowds of visitors walking on ramps to awaiting ferries.
