DARIEN, Ga. -- All McIntosh County schools were dismissed Thursday morning after a 'security concern' at one of the schools.

Witnesses said that McIntosh County Academy was placed on lockdown sometime Thursday morning. The students were then evacuated and sent home.

McIntosh County Sheriff's Office Major Lowe says that a threat was relayed to the Sheriff's Office by another police department up north.

The unknown department said that a threat was made to the school online. Lowe would not comment on where online the threat was made.

At this point no weapons have been found and there are no injuries reported.

The Sheriff's office does have some people of interest, but the identities have not been released.

No other information has been provided at this time.
