LANCASTER, Pa. -- Police in Pennsylvania say a 5-year-old girl was abducted while playing in her yard, but found safe two hours later after two boys spotted her in a car. Investigators are seeking the suspect, who drove off.

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, as police and fire crews scoured the area, 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 male driver eventually stopped and let the girl out before driving off.

Lancaster Township fire Chief Ron Comfort says the girl was scared, but had no obvious physical injuries.
