A bomb scare in Dale County caught the attention of experts and authorities from across the Wiregrass Wednesday.

But it turned out to be a false alarm.

Authorities were called to Rose Hill landfill after someone found what appeared to be a bomb or a missile.

After a thorough investigation, authorities say there was actually no explosive material found inside the shell.

It is simply a casing or a dud that was possibly used in a training exercise, and appears to be about 50 years old.
