Two Pennsylvania teens are being hailed as heroes after they chased down a man in a car who had snatched a five-year-old girl from her grandmother's front yard - on their bikes .
A 5 year old girl, was missing for two hours yesterday when Temar Boggs
and a friend saw the child in a car near Lancaster Township and gave chase.
After Boggs, 15, and his friend had been tailing the vehicle for 15 minutes, the driver let the little girl out of the car and sped off.
The girl was playing in the front yard of her grandmother's home on the 100 block of Jennings Drive in Lancaster Township when she disappeared at about 4:35pm Thursday.
The family notified police and officers sprang into action, blocking off streets and scouring the area with canine units. Police showed the child's picture around the neighborhood and Boggs and his friend joined more than 100 first responders searching for the girl.
Boggs spottted the girl in the abductor's car and he and his friend began to follow the car. Boggs and his friends kept after the kidnapper. “We chased the car for fifteen minutes.” Eventually, the kidnapper, apparently unable to shake Temar Boggs and his friends, gave up his victim.
“I guess he got scared that we were chasing him, and he let her out….She ran to me and said she needed her mommy.”
Boggs put the girl on his shoulders and carried her while riding his bike, but he decided that that was too dangerous, and so he carried her the rest of the way.
'If he wasn't going to stop, I was probably going to like, jump on the car,'.
