SEA-TAC AIRPORT - A security breach that placed Sea-Tac Airport into lockdown for nearly an hour Thursday morning has ended but long lines remain at security checkpoints.
Planes had been held at gates and security checkpoints were closed down while security officials investigated a reported breach.
The lockdown began at about 9:37 a.m. when a passenger's bag set off an alarm during primary screening and the passenger became separated from the bag, said Transportation Security Administration spokesman Dwayne Baird.
The lockdown remained in effect while security officials reviewed surveillance video to try and match the bag with the missing passenger.
Once the passenger was found, the bag went through secondary screening and was determined not be a security threat.
The lockdown was then lifted, at about 10:30 a.m.
KOMO News 1000 radio reporter Travis Mayfield, reporting from the scene, said long lines of people are still waiting to go through security checkpoints after the lockdown.
But security agents are working methodically to reduce the lines.
Lines extended clear into the parking garage at one point, and the wait to get through security is estimated at 45 minutes to an hour, he said.
