For Black History Month, NewsOne honors GAME CHANGERS: Everyday heroes whose actions make life better for the people around them. SEE ALL OUR GAME CHANGERS HERE.

Place of Residence: Lancaster, Pa.

Why He’s a Game Changer: Boggs, just 15 at the time, helped to track down a 5-year-old girl who had been abducted.

They say if you see something that you should say something. Well, Boggs and his friend Chris Garcia let their actions do the talking for them when they tracked down a 5-year-old who had been abducted while playing in the yard outside of her house.

Boggs just seems like a good kid. At the time of the abduction, he and his friends were helping an old woman move a couch. Once he heard about the abduction, Boggs said he gathered a bunch of other teens to search the area on their bikes.

That trip was unsuccessful but Boggs was determined to find the girl. He launched off on another search and Garcia wisely decided to accompany his friend.

“I had the gut feeling that I was going to find the little girl,” said Boggs.

He was spot on. Boggs and Garcia spotted a suspicious van that kept turning down side streets. And then he was able to look inside the vehicle and see the girl. Boggs and Garcia then relentlessly pursued the van for 15 minutes.

“I wasn’t scared, I was just [thinking], “Save the little girl, make sure she was okay,” said Boggs

The abductor grew scared and let Jocelyn out of the van.

“She ran to me and said she needed her mommy, and I rode her back home,” said Boggs.

Harold Leroy Herr, a 73-year-old man with a history of kidnapping and sexually assaulting children, plead guilty to kidnapping and was sentenced to 50 years behind bars, which at his age is a life sentence.

“I want you to stop hurting little kids,” the victim said in a taped statement that was played in court.

Boggs and Garcia meanwhile were hailed as heroes. One woman raised almost $20,000 for the teen’s college.

“I just think its amazing that teenagers at that took it upon themselves to put their lives in danger to make sure my child was okay,” said the girl’s mother.

Boggs said he and Garcia were just doing the right thing and would do it again.

“It was just out of heart. It wasn’t to get attention or anything. It was just to help somebody in the community, help make sure another little life was okay and make sure her future could be possible,” said Boggs.
