Times Square scare rattles New York

(CNN) – The hunt is on for a possible suspect who terrorized Times Square over the weekend. Police in New York City are going over every inch of the Nissan Pathfinder that was left on 45th street, packed with propane tanks, gas cans, and clocks.

The investigation was focusing on examinations of a Nissan Pathfinder where the attempted homemade bomb was placed.

Oil slick awaits NOLA's new mayor
