Amanda Disley and her husband Benny Correa were coming back from dinner with their five children. It looked like a calm ordinary evening, but then the night took a shocking turn.

While driving home, the couple noticed something going on inside a car. Just hours before, they heard about an Amber Alarm issued for a 11-year-old girl named Charlotte Moccia, who had been kidnapped on her way home from school.

The couple realized that the girl was being held inside the car. Without hesitating for a second, they got into a high-speed chase to save the young girl. Now they’re being praised by the police for their courageous action.

Charlotte had stepped off the school bus and was making her way home when a man grabbed her and forced her into his car, she was kicking and screaming, ABC News reported.

An Amber Alert was issued which Amanda and Benny saw and a few hours later found themselves crossing paths with the blue Honda which had distinctive wheel trims similar to description in the alert.

The couple gave chase and found themselves pursuing a car that was traveling at 100 mph and running red lights.

When you see someone’s life in danger, “you go,” Amanda said.

But she added that her husband slowed and let cars pass at the red lights before continuing their pursuit. She said they would never have put their children’s lives in danger.

Amanda recorded the chase and called 911 after getting close enough to read the car’s registration plate. Police took over and were able to stop the suspect and Charlotte is now safely back home with her family.

Charlotte’s family thanked everyone involved in the safe return of their daughter in a statement released through Springfield police.

“In particular, we’d like to thank Amanda Disley and her husband for their vigilance and courage for putting themselves in harm’s way to make sure she wasn’t out of their sight.”

Police praised the couple’s actions without which Charlotte may not have been found.

“This was an absolute life and death situation for this little girl. Thank you to the public for helping us out and it has come to a very good conclusion,” said Commissioner Cheryl Capprood, from Springfield Police.
