Lancaster teen Temar Boggs hailed as a hero in 5-year-old's abduction. ...Temar Boggs had a feeling he'd find the 5-year-old girl who was abducted Thursday in Lancaster Township....He was right.
Boggs, a McCaskey freshman who lives in Gable Park Woods, had been hanging out with a friend at nearby Lancaster Arms apartments and helping move a couch when a man came by asking if they'd seen a missing girl.
They hadn't, Boggs said, so they went to watch TV.
A short time later, his friend went outside and saw lots of police officers and people from the neighborhood looking for the girl.
Police said that the girl had been taken that afternoon from the 100 block of Jennings Drive.
Boggs and about six friends joined the search.
"We got all of our friends to go look for her. We made our own little search party," Boggs, 15, said Saturday, though he didn't know the girl or her family.
They walked through some nearby woods and along a creek where they were told the girl might have gone.
When Boggs and his friends returned to Lancaster Arms on Jennings Drive, they saw more police officers and TV news crews.
"The whole block was filled," he said.
That's when, Boggs said, "I had the gut feeling that I was going to find the little girl."
A friend asked Boggs to hold his bike. Boggs figured the bike would help him search for the girl.
So he and another friend, Chris Garcia, rode on area streets — Michelle Drive, St. Phillips Drive, Gable Park Road — looking for her.
That's when a maroon car caught his eye. (He had gotten a bit ahead of Garcia.)
Too bad our civil right leaders can't be here to praise this boy.....Obama needs to talk about kids like this...
