BOSTON (NEWS CENTER) -  Boston Police and Federal officials have said there has been no arrest made.

FBI just released this information:

"Contrary to widespread reporting, no arrest has been made in connection with the Boston Marathon attack. Over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports based on information from unofficial sources that has been inaccurate. Since these stories often have unintended consequences, we ask the media, particularly at this early stage of the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting."

Earlier both CNN and the AP had said that there was an arrest. They said their source was a federal official, but wouldn't reveal who that person was.

Earlier the AP said: "The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday. The official was not authorized to divulge details of the investigation." 

Officals will have a press conference at 5pm with more details .
