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.
