Three more suspicious packages were found Thursday morning. Two were addressed to former Vice President Joe Biden and the other to actor Robert de Niro.

The package sent to de Niro showed up at a building in Manhattan that houses a restaurant and production company owned by the actor. According to NBC News, a building employee called police to report he'd seen a package similar to the ones discovered Wednesday. 

Both packages sent to Biden were intercepted in Delaware. One was found at a mail facility in New Castle, the other was about eight miles away in Wilmington. 

All three packages looked nearly identical to the others. They had six Forever stamps and listed U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz's office as the return address. 

The other devices were sent to top Democrats and critics of President Donald Trump, including Hillary Clinton, former CIA Director John Brennan and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters. All the packages contained a pipe bomb. 

Luckily, none of the bombs have detonated. Multiple agencies are trying to hunt down the person responsible.
