LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: Going to break in for just a moment to give you some more updated information that we've got on this situation with -- a school bus is missing in Pennsylvania. We understand this is in Berks County, Pennsylvania.

Officials there are looking for a school bus that has 10 to 20 children on board and from grades one through nine. These children were picked up at Oley High School about 8:20 Eastern. That would have been almost four hours ago -- actually, more than four hours ago, four and a half hours ago or so, and they were supposed to be taken over to Berks Christian School in Exeter, about 15 miles or away or so, and they were supposed to be driving along Route 662.

As we understand it, we have checked with our Weather Center, and we have found that there is a flood watch that is in effect in that area, and this bus is now missing. Therefore, you can understand the concern that officials have right now.

The driver of the bus is 60 to 70-years-old, and as we said, there are 10 to 20 children on board this bus. It was supposed to be on Route 662, which is also known as the Oley Turnpike Road, and we have no idea exactly where -- at what point they believe this bus may have -- may be along that road, but conditions in that area, rainy and foggy, and there is a flash flood watch.

So, if anyone has seen this bus or has seen anything -- or picked up any information that could be helpful to police, please make sure you get in touch with them immediately.
