BRADFORD COUNTY, Fla. – Two elementary-aged siblings were reported missing Monday afternoon in Bradford County.  After a three hour search, the children were located safe.

The Bradford County Sheriff's Office responded to the area of SE 86th Street and CR-325, south of Hampton, after receiving a call about the missing children.

The kids were last seen when their bus driver dropped them off at home.  BCSO didn't say who reported them missing and where the children may have gone after they were dropped off.

The search involved numerous BCSO personnel, Union Correctional bloodhounds, Alachua County's helicopter and several Bradford County School District employees.

The children were found safe three hours after they were reported missing.
