CHEROKEE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Cherokee County officials searched an area near the North Carolina border on Monday night after multiple reports of a loud boom and a low-flying plane.

Crews searched for evidence of an explosion near Cliffside Highway 221A.

At about 11 p.m., crews called off the search after nothing was found.

Tower officials at GSP said there was a C17 practicing maneuvers earlier Monday night in the Upstate that may have been flying low.

The military plane flew in from Charleston and left the Upstate to practice maneuvers in Columbia.

The C17 is not connected to the search in Cherokee County.
