When a Stranger Grabs a Girl From Her Front Yard, These 3 Words Saved Her Life

Every parent's worst nightmare is your child being taken or harmed right in plain sight.

We always try to teach our children about "stranger danger" and to be cautious around people they don't know, but sometimes situations can be beyond our control.

When 5-year-old Jocelyn Rojas was playing in front of her grandmother's home, the unthinkable happened.

A man approached her and lured her to a vehicle with the promise of ice cream, then proceeded to grab her neck and shove her inside.

A search party was quickly formed and they even blocked off the streets while searching for the little girl. Canines were brought in as people canvased block by block for the child.

After being missing for 2 hours, 15-year-old Temar and Chris sprung into action and jumped on their bikes to help look for Jocelyn.

Nearly half a mile from her home, the boys spotted a maroon sedan, the same vehicle used in the kidnapping.

“Every time we’d go down the street, he’d turn back around, and then…we’ll follow him,” said Temar.

15 minutes went by as they young men chased the car.

Temar bravely pulled his bike right next to the car and immediately suspected that this was the man that everyone was looking for.

With all the courage he could muster, Temar looked into the man's eyes and uttered, "I see you."

And then something they did not expect happened.

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

Jocelyn's grandmother Tracey Clay was overcome with gratitude to Boggs.

'Thank you. You're our hero,' she said hugging and kissing him.

The next day, the kidnapper was caught with the help of the description the boys gave to police.

It really goes to show that anyone can make a difference!
