SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a Navy medic who went AWOL and left a note saying he had planted bombs at a San Clemente high school has turned himself in.
Camp Pendleton Master Sgt. Mark Oliva said 22-year-old Daniel Morgan surrendered Wednesday afternoon at the military base. He said Morgan was being interviewed and could face a military charge of unauthorized absence after failing to report to duty Wednesday morning.
Oliva had no further details. Orange County sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino told KABC-TV that Oliva surrendered at a hospital on the base.
After the note was found in Morgan's barracks, authorities evacuated 3,200 students and 180 staff members from San Clemente High School.
A search at the school was under way, but so far no bombs have been found.
