A 5-year-old girl from Pennsylvania who had went missing for two hours is now at home safe in the arms of her family, and it’s all thanks to a quick-witted teen who followed his gut instinct and ultimately saved the girl.
It all started when 5-year-old Jocelyn Rojas was taken from her grandmother’s front yard. As soon as she noticed that the child went missing, grandma alerted the authorities. The girl’s family was already starting to panic knowing that it’s not like Jocelyn to wander away.
After police arrived at the scene, they secured the neighborhood for 5-year-old Jocelyn Rojas and asked for everyone in the community to join the search efforts. Teen Temar Boggs and a friend joined were two of the people who joined over 100 first responders to help find Jocelyn.
Temar was on his bike when he spotted the girl in the kidnapper’s car who had allegedly lured the child in by offering her ice cream. Without thinking twice, Lamar started chasing the suspect on his bike, and did so for fifteen minutes.
Lamar managed to get close enough to actually see the kidnapper and the little girl up close. Then is when the kidnapper decided to stop the car and let the child out. Jocelyn ran up to Temar and told him that she wanted to go to her mom.
If the kidnapper hadn’t stop his car, Lamar said that he would have most likely put himself in front of the car and do whatever it took to save the girl.
