A car sought in connection with a suspected death  threat against President Barack Obama has been located in Connecticut, authorities said Saturday.

The Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, had asked state police for help in locating the car in connection with a possible threat to the president, State Police Lt. J. Paul Vance said.

Neither the state police nor the Secret Service would specify the nature of the threat.

"We have taken all appropriate investigative steps in this matter, based on the information we received yesterday about a suspicious vehicle and person," Secret Service spokeswoman Nicole Mainor said, according to The Christian Science Monitor. "There have been no arrests or charges brought in this case at this point."

The 2014 Volkswagen Jetta was found late Friday night in Hamden, a suburb of New Haven, Vance said.

Obama on Friday night was in Newport, R.I., which is about 90 miles west of Hamden, attending a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser.

The Secret Service, in a statement on Saturday, said that it had investigated information about a suspicious person and vehicle and was working to determine its validity.

"There have been no arrests or charges brought in this case at this point," Secret Service spokeswoman Nicole Mainor said in the statement.

The car was found near an ice rink and a group of apartment complexes, police said.

Reuters contributed to this report.
