A brave couple in Massachusetts helped rescue an 11-year-old girl from her kidnapper. On Wednesday night the couple saw a vehicle that matched the description of one the police were looking for. Benny Correa and his wife Amanda Disley were on their way home after dining with their family when they saw a dark blue Honda Civic car in Brimfield. Authorities were looking for the car in connection with the case of a girl who had been kidnapped after being threatened with a knife.
The car had windows with tinted windows and had the same tires as what they had seen on the news in a report on the kidnapping of Charlotte Moccia, a girl who was kidnapped after getting off a school bus in Springfield. The couple then decided to follow the car - with their five children sitting in their truck - and called 911 to report the incident. "We had an intuition that it was the same car," Disley revealed to ABC News in an interview broadcast on Good Morning America.
As they followed the car they dictated the plaque to the police over the phone, and when they actually checked it it was the suspect's car. The couple followed the suspect's car even as the speed increased. Correa even had to carry a red light, stopping first to make sure there was no danger to his family, so that he could track the kidnapper.
Correa says he had to drive aggressively to avoid losing track of the blue car. “I got pretty close to the car. I had to do what I had to do, as a father I am, "said Correa, thinking of the anguish that the relatives of the kidnapped girl must have felt without knowing where he was. Eventually the van in which the parents and their five children were traveling ran out of gas amid the chase but police were able to catch up to the suspect, arrest her and save Charlotte.
