Was Jesus body stolen by his disciples to hide him?

No, well given that we take the Bible as being The Word of God we can see the book of Matthew chapter 28 verse 11-15answering the question,  we can see that 'the elders and the chief priests' (reference to the Phaisees?) Paid off the 2 Roman guards who were near the tomb 11 While the women were on their way, some of the guards  went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened. 12 When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money, 13 telling them, “You are to say, ‘His disciples came during the night and stole him away  while we were asleep.’  then they would try to cover their deception up by distracting Pilate 14 If this report gets to the governor,  we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.”   and of course the Guards took the bribe.  15 So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.

So when we are questioned by unbelieves about whether or not Jesus body was taken away rather than gone to Heaven we sould quote this small passage.

In Jesus name AMEN
