San Clemente, California - A Navy doctor accused of leaving a threatening note saying that planted bombs at a nearby high school - prompting officials to students and staff to leave the school buildings, the first day of school - has involved in a military base in Southern California Wednesday, authorities said.

Daniel Morgan, 22, went to Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base at Camp Pendleton about 1:00 Wednesday Master Sgt. Mark Oliva said.

Morgan was last seen at the base to 17 hours Tuesday, the Orange County Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino said. By not reporting to work Wednesday morning, the barracks were recorded and a note was discovered, he said.

Morgan claimed in the memo that he had placed explosive devices in and around San Clemente High School, located a few miles of one of the gates of Camp Pendleton, Amormino said.

Shortly after the note was found, about 3,200 students and 180 teachers were told to leave the school buildings. Students and staff expected the school football field - and later in a gym room, auditorium and others - including a bomb team searched through the buildings and classrooms. Approximately four hours, each was sent home.

"Campus is secure," Amormino said at midday. "We have all the bomb-sniffing dogs in this province are looking for a room within a room."

No bombs were found by Wednesday afternoon. Also was responsible not believe that all military-grade explosives were taken from the base, said Marine Lt. Joshua Benson.

"At this point all we know is that he threatened to information on a piece of paper," he said.

Morgan was questioned by the military authorities and could face a military charge of unauthorized absence, having failed to report to duty, Oliva said.

"It's weird, do not you think someone who is supposed to protect our country because all our children at risk," said student Megan Lombardy KCAL-TV.
