The mother of the 4-year-old kidnapped Wednesday talked to KOB Eyewitness News 4 about chasing the suspect in her car. 

Melissa Torrez said her little girl was playing in front of her apartment with several other children when she says some teens told her the girl was taken.

Torrez said she immediately got in her car and was able to find the car the teens described.

She says she chased that car for several miles, and accidentally crashed into it on Kathryn near San Mateo.

"He got down from the vehicle, he threw his arms up at me like I don't know what he meant and I was on the phone with the cops and I got out. We were standing face to face and I guess he saw me waving the cops down and then he ran," Torrez said.

Torrez showed us the damage to her car from the crash.

She said after the crash, she realized her little girl had been let out of the suspect's car miles back unhurt.
