LANCASTER TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Thanks to the quick thinking and reacting of two teenage boys in Pennsylvania, 5-year-old Jocelyn Rojas is safe.

WDAF-TV reports that Rojas was playing outside of her home when she disappeared. Her mother called the police and with the help of the community, they launched a huge effort to find her.

Among the people searching for Rojas, were two teenage boys on their bikes.

The boys saw Rojas in a car driven by a man, so they immediately followed the car on their bikes. When the driver noticed that the boys were following him, he pushed the girl out of the car and Rojas ran to the boys.

"Soon as the guy started noticing that we were chasing them, he stopped at the end of the hill and let her out and she ran to me and said that she needed her mom and I brought her back over here to police," said Temar Buggs, one of the teenage boys.

The girl's family calls Temar and his friend Chris Garcia their heroes.

Temar told Lancaster Online that he had a gut feeling he'd find Jocelyn, who was reportedly lured into the car with the promise of ice cream. The suspected kidnapper is a middle-aged man who has not been identified.
