    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.

    Jocelyn Rojas, five, 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.

    Lost and found: Five-year-old Jocelyn Rojas was missing for more than two hours before she was spotted by teenagers on their bikes

    Now that the little girl is safely back with her family, police are focusing on finding the suspect.
    Jocelyn Rojas 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 Jocelyn'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.

    The high school student said the little girl ran towards him when she got out of the car.
    'If he wasn't going to stop, I was probably going to like, jump on the car,' Boggs told ABC6.

    Boggs said the suspect would turn around to see if they were still following him after they began to give chase.

    'As soon as the guy started noticing that we were chasing him, he stopped at the end of the hill and let her out, and she ran to me and said that she needed her mom,' he said.
    Boggs took the little girl to the police and they contacted her frantic mother and family.
    Police say the teens may have scared the abductor into giving the girl up and their bravery is being praised by the girl's family and police.

    'He's our hero': The little girl's family express their gratitude to the teenager who found Jocelyn Rojas

    Sergeant Jeff Jones told WGAL, 'It is possible this individual saw the boys following him and it is possible he got nervous. We don't know that for sure; I'd sure like to find out,' he said.

    Jocelyn Rojas' grandmother Tracey Clay was overcome with gratitude to Boggs.
    'Thank you. You're our hero,' she said hugging and kissing him.
    'He's our hero. I mean, there's no words to say,' she told WGAL.
    'You see the amber alerts and you think, "I feel for that family." But when you're in that situation. Oh my god, it's horrible,' she said.


    Grateful: Jocelyn Rojas' grandmother said words couldn't express how grateful she was to Temar Boggs and his friend

    'It’s just something you don’t wish on anybody. Horrible, horrible thoughts flashed through my mind.'
    Police say the male suspect drove the girl in a maroon, burgundy or purple-colored sedan, most likely a Chevy, almost half a mile from her home.
    The latest reports say he had offered to buy the chil

    I saw this story early this morning. Great kids. I hope their parents are very proud and let them know it.

    They are great kids and I'm glad they are getting the pats on the back they deserve.

    I do wonder though how a car couldn't outrun kids on bikes. And why this guy was only 1/2 mile from the girl's house two hours after kidnapping her. Maybe the blockades had pinned him in a certain area but still, 1/2 a mile?

    Other reports say that the police acted quickly to close roads around the area. My guess is that he put her out of the car so that attention on him would be deflected and that he would be able to drive through the cordon.

    Yeah that's what I meant by the blockades may have pinned him. But think about how fast the police would have had to have acted to pin him into an area 1/2 mile from where he kidnapped her. Impossible.

    ETA: I wasn't thinking about it when I started to question it, but it seems likely he took her somewhere nearby for a while. Unless he was driving in circles for 2 hours.

    How great, and brave of these kids. It is so nice to hear good news about teens, and a happy ending to a child abduction story.

    Wow well done Temar and pal, that's amazing. Chasing that car was a really brave thing to do, I wonder if they're typical teens and didn't even consider that the driver could have a weapon or something. That little girl is adorable, kids in glasses are super cute. So glad this turned out well.

    I figured his mum and dad didn't want his name mentioned, or he's maybe a bit younger?

    This restores my fading hope that not all teens are self obsessed morons. His body language when being hugged is pretty typical though LOL. Great story.
