There’s nothing better than hitting the road with your three best friends. Road trips are some of the most memorable experiences young adults will face.

But for this group of friends, they might remember this trip for all the wrong reasons.

Four children from Queensland, Australia made headlines after they took one of their parents’ cars for a joyride, and not just any joyride!

On July 13, 2019 a 14-year-old boy, two 13-year-old boys, and a 10-year-old girl took off in a 2005 Nissan Patrol, which they packed with fishing rods and cash. One of the boys left a note for his parents saying “he was leaving,” according to Australia’s 7News.

They were found more than 900km (or 553.23 miles) from their homes. 7News reports that they were first spotted early Sunday morning where they were allegedly “involved in a petrol theft incident.”
