The 27-year-old man who found the missing 5-year-old girl in Upper Darby will receive the $10,000 reward that was offered by the city, police said.
Nelson Mandela Myers spoke to reporters Tuesday afternoon, hours after finding the little girl.
Myers was on his way to work in Norristown when he heard screaming from a nearby playground.
Myers says he found the missing 5-year-old under a slide and immediately put his jacket around her because she was shivering, cold and wet.
He says the girl told him someone was chasing her.
Myers then called 911 for help.
At the time, Myers says he did not know the girl was the victim of an abduction.
As a parent with a 5-year-old, Myers says there were never any second thoughts about doing the right thing.
"I'm just glad I was there at the right time. I just wished that somebody would do that for my child if my child was in that situation," Myers said.
