(Newser) – Another airport scare for New York City: Authorities evacuated a terminal at JFK this afternoon after a man walked through a security area, set off an alarm, and then disappeared. When cops couldn't locate him, they evacuated Terminal 8 so everyone could be re-screened. A source tells the Daily News that officials think the terminal "is fine." It handles domestic and international flights for American, and some were being delayed.
