Missing 7 year old boy RESCUED by 70 year old woman

BALTIMORE - A celebration unfolded after 8-year old Darrick Brown returned home after his abduction.
"There you go!" said a family member as he emerged from his house.
"Boy, there were a lot of people worried about you."
Missing for 13 hours and the subject of an Amber alert, the young boy showed no sign of being harmed nor intimidated by his captors.
"Was he scared?" we asked his family.
"No," Darrick responded matter of factly.
"When we saw him he didn't seem scared, did you?"
"No."
But in a crime ridden city struck with fear, Darrick owes his escape to 70-year old Helen Jones.
She spotted him peaking out of the door of a vacant house across from her home on Lyndhurst Street and then emerging from the house after an adult suspect drove away.
"He looked up the street and the man was coming down the street and he ran back down there and ran back into the house and he waited about a minute,” said Jones, “Then he came back out. He looked around again and then I said to Duane, 'That looks like the little boy that's missing.'"
Jones called 911 and Darrick called his grandparents who came to pick him up in a tear-filled reunion.
"I'm really glad God sent me there to see it," said Jones.
Two men in a car had stopped on Darrick’s street late Monday, snatched him up in front of other children and placed him in their trunk before driving away.
Police have one unidentified suspect in custody and they’re still searching for another---21-year old Raheem Taylor.
Fortunately, Darrick was unharmed, but his family says he was tired and hungry so picked up his favorite food from McDonald’s.
"The bottom line is we're glad to have that little boy back safe and sound. All too many times in Baltimore, abduction victims become murder victims," said Baltimore City Police Detective Donny Moses.
Police say the kidnappers attempted to collect ransom money from Darrick’s family and that had already put investigators on their trail.
During the call, we’re told the family recognized one of the suspect’s cell phone numbers as that of someone they knew.
