"We got all of our friends to go look for her," Boggs, 15, told "We made our own little search party.

"I'm just a normal person who did a thing that anybody else would do," he added.

The girl was last seen by her mother walking toward a wooded area behind an apartment on Thursday, reported. At around 4:20 p.m., the suspect allegedly lured the child by taking her for ice cream and then assaulted her, according to the website.

At about 6:48 p.m., the suspect pushed the girl from his vehicle after Boggs and another boy saw the child in his car and chased him through the neighborhood.

"She runs to my arms and said, 'I need to see my mommy,' " Boggs told the newspaper.
