Police: Pennsylvania girl, 5, abducted from yard is found safe thanks to astute teens

Police in Pennsylvania say a 5-year-old girl was abducted by a man offering to take her for ice cream as she played in her yard, but found safe two hours later after two boys spotted her in a car.

Investigators say they are checking with area ice cream shops as they search for the suspect, who's between the ages of 50 and 70 and walks with a limp.

It happened around 4:30 p.m. Thursday in Lancaster Township just outside the city of Lancaster. Police say that's when Jocelyn Rojas was reported missing.

Two hours later, police in nearby Manheim Township say two teenage boys spotted a girl matching Rojas' description inside a car. They began following the vehicle on their bicycles and police say the driver eventually stopped and let the girl out before driving off.
