NORWALK, Conn. (AP) - Police in Connecticut say they have scoured trains in Darien and Norwalk for the surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect, but their search turned up nothing.

One of the trains in question left South Station in Boston at about 5 a.m. Friday. It was the only train to leave Boston on Friday morning before Amtrack suspended service between Boston and Providence, part of a wider regional lockdown.

Once the train reached East Norwalk, police from several departments boarded the southbound train with at least one bomb-sniffing dog, around 8:30 a.m.

After searching seats, hidden compartments, bathrooms, and other areas of the train, officials cleared the train without finding anyone or anything.

The MTA says police also stopped and searched a Metro-North train in Darien, but didn't find anyone.
