15-Year-Old Boy Saves 5-Year-Old From Kidnapper (Video)

Two teenage boys from Pennsylvania are being called heroes after saving a 5-year-old girl who was kidnapped from her home (video below).

When 5-year-old Jocelyn Rojas went missing from her front yard in Lancaster, neighbors and police embarked on a two-hour search for her, CNN reported.

Temar Boggs, 15, took action. He and his friend rode their bikes in search of Jocelyn. They were able to locate the girl in a sedan about a half-mile away. Temar said the driver was elusive.

"Every time [we'd] go down the street, he'd turn back around, and then ... [we'd] follow him," Temar said.

Temar and his friend tailed the car for 15 minutes. The driver eventually realized he was being followed, and gave up.

"He stopped at the end of the hill and let her out, and she ran to me and said that she needed her mom," Temar said.

Jocelyn’s family took turns hugging Temar, thanking him for his heroics.

“He's our hero,” Jocelyn's grandmother, Tracey Clay, told reporters. “There is just no words to say.”

The suspect remains at large. He was described as a white male between 50 and 70 years old, WHTM reported. He was driving a reddish-purple or maroon car with round taillights. He also walks with a limp.

"I just feel like I did something very accomplishing today," Temar added.
