KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Police say the scene is cleared and they are no longer investigating a suspicious device found in the Hospital Hill area Thursday.

They said at 11:30 a.m. a patient at the Center for Behavioral Medicine notified someone about the device.

Police filled the area of East 24th and Harrison streets as they tried to determine what the device was. About 1:30 p.m. they said they officially cleared the scene and had taken a false bomb report.

The Kansas City Health Department was temporarily closed due to the possible security threat. It reopened by 1:15 p.m.
