A Connecticut State Police spokesman said the agency was working with the US Secret Service to track down a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta, the Courant reported.

In a statement, the Secret Service confirmed that it was searching for “a potentially suspicious person and vehicle,” but would not confirm whether the vehicle was located.

Obama was in Purchase, N.Y., and Newport, R.I., on Friday for fund-raising events.

According to NBC New York, the vehicle may have been near where the president was stopped in New York.

Further information was unavailable early Saturday.
