A young man from Lancaster, PA is being hailed as a hero after helping to rescue an abducted 5-year old girl.
15 year old Temar Boggs and his friend joined a search party for the missing girl, riding their bikes around the neighborhood.
That’s when they spotted a suspicious vehicle with a little girl inside.
That’s when a maroon car caught his eye. (He had gotten a bit ahead of Garcia.)
The car was on Gable Park and turned around when it got near the top of a hill toward Millersville Pike, where Boggs said several police officers were gathered with the kind of cart used to carry an injured football player off the field.
The driver, an older white man, then began quickly turning onto and out of side streets connecting to Gable Park, Boggs said.
The neighborhood is something of a maze; many of its streets are cul-de-sacs.
Boggs got close enough to the car to see a little girl inside. Garcia was nearby.
The driver looked at Boggs and Garcia, then stopped the car at Gable Park and Betz Farm Road and pushed the girl out of the car. The driver then drove off, Boggs said.
Boggs said he didn’t see where the car went.
“She runs to my arms and said, ‘I need to see my mommy,’ ” Boggs said.
Since rescuing the little girl, Temar has met her family, who’ve hailed him as a hero and a guardian angel.
But according to Tamar, “I’m just a normal person who did a thing that anybody else would do.”
An amazing story.
We are so proud of Temar for his heroic actions. Thanks to him, a little girl is safe and a terrible tragedy avoided.
