PIMA COUNTY, AZ ( Tucson News Now) - The Explosive Ordinance Disposal Sergeant of PCSD says several hospitals in Tucson and at least one in the county have received bomb threats on Saturday.

The individual calling is making these threats from a number that has been traced back to Mexico. PCSD think it could be a ghost number.

EOD Sergeant says the individual is calling in and saying there are three bombs in the building and everyone needs to get out. The caller adds that his wife and daughter are missing and the government isn't doing anything about it.

At this time Pima County Sheriff's Department finds no credibility with these threats.

Hospitals receiving these calls should be advised to have their own staff check their own work spaces.

So far, no hospital has found anything unusual or conducted any type of evacuation.

The FBI has been plugged into this from the city side and is looking into this as a hoax.
