Teen Chases Down Kidnapper on Bike

After five-year-old Jocelyn Rojas vanished from her front yard in Lancaster, PA this afternoon, police scoured the neighborhood looking for her, and asked neighbors and anyone else available to help track her down. The unlikely heroes of the afternoon? Bike-riding, 15-year-old Temar Boggs and a friend of his.

After two hours of searching, Boggs and his friend saw Jocelyn in a car. They chased the car for 15 minutes, during which the kidnapper seemed to know he was being followed. The driver tried to shake the boys, but eventually gave up, stopping at the bottom of a hill to let the little girl free. Said Boggs about the rescue: "I feel like I did something very accomplishing today."

The suspect—described as a limping white male between 50 and 70 years old, driving a reddish-maroon sedan with round taillights and wearing green shoes and pants and a red and white striped shirt—is still at large. Authorities believe he lured Jocelyn with the promise of ice cream.
