Man Hijacks School Bus in Missouri

KSDK NewsChannel 5 - Man Hijacks School Bus In Centreville
Police are looking for a man who stole a school bus.

The bus driver had gone outside her Centreville home to warm up the bus, and went back inside her house to get her child.

Police say that after the driver and her child got on the bus, and were driving, a man appeared from one of the back seats. He told the driver to drop off the child at the school or daycare where the child was going, then to drive on. A short time later, he told the driver to get off the bus, and he drove the bus away.

The driver and the child were not harmed. Police aren't sure if the man had a weapon.

The bus was later found in the 800 block of 75th Street in East St. Louis. The search for the hijacker continues.
