Surveillance video appeared to show the three in the school bus sitting, walking around and trying to remove the bus surveillance camera.

A Polk County School Board bus driver noticed her bus was missing when she went to the lot to start her student pick-up route.

The bus was driven south to a park in Highlands County, deputies said. The bus was later returned to Polk County.
