Teens chase kidnapping suspect on bikes, save 5-year-old girl

Two teenage boys are being hailed as heroes after they chased a car carrying a kidnapped girl – on their bicycles.

In July of 2013, five-year-old Jocelyn Rojas was playing in her front yard in Lancaster, Pennsylvania when she suddenly disappeared. Rojas’s parents feared the worst, so they alerted police and began a frantic search of their neighborhood.

Instead of waiting for the police to find the little girl, fifteen year-old Temar Boggs and his friend decided to start looking for her themselves. Soon, they spotted Rojas in a car with a man, so they began to follow the car on their bicycles. The teens followed the car for fifteen minutes as the man tried to lose them. Finally, he seemingly gave up, pulled over, and shoved the child from the car.

“She ran to me and said that she needed her mom,” Temar said.

BAMF’s Of The Day: Temar Boggs And Chris Garcia

15-year-old Temar Boggs and his friend Chris Garcia bravely saved a little girl from being abducted, making them our BAMF’s of the day.

Just moments after Temar Boggs and Chris Garcia head the amber alert for 5-year-old Jocelyn Rojas, both boys hopped onto their bikes and joined the search for the missing girl.

Boggs noticed a car make a u-turn near the top of a hill where several police officers were gathered. The suspicious vehicle started roaming the side streets in the neighborhood, which is known for having several cul-de-sacs and dead ends.

The teen chose to chase the car on his bike, and even got close enough to see a little girl inside. He even made eye contact with the driver, who was frightened enough by the encounter to let the little girl out of the car. Boggs stated:

“She runs to my arms and said, ‘I need to see my mommy.’”

Boggs escorted Jocelyn to the police where she was reunited with her family.

The suspect, described as a white male between 50 and 70 years old, is still on the loose. He was driving a maroon car with round tail lights, wearing green shoes, green pants and a red-and-white striped shirt. He reportedly walked with a limp.
