    Police are looking for a driver they say abandoned a school bus full of children in Queens on Friday.

    Authorities originally went looking for the man for an unrelated domestic case at the school on Friday in Richmond Hill.

    After realizing he had left driving a school bus, the school helped police find the bus between 134th St and Linden Boulevard. It had children aboard, but the driver ran away.

    The children were safe and were reunited with their parents.

    Anyone with information about the suspect should call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
