Question 4
Read the following passage.

Jocelyn spent all day playing happily with her friends outside her apartment as her mom, Jaimee,
kept her eye from a window.
At about 4 p.m., Jocelyn walked around the corner of the building to get her bicycle and
disappeared. The frantic mother called out to her daughter as she searched the building. She knew
something was wrong when she saw that Jocelyns bike was still there. Jaimee called 911.
Police officers blocked the streets and searched the suburban neighbourhood and handed out a
photo of the blonde girl Jocelyn. Kino, 15, was with some friends moving a couch into the
apartment of his elderly neighbour when a police officer approached him and asked if hed seen
Jocelyn. A little bit later, Kino walked over to Jocelyns apartment to check out the situation.
I felt that I was going to find her, he said and cycled his BMX. He searched without a plan, simply
keeping a sharp eye out as he cycled past the wealthy neighbourhood. Suddenly a maroon Chevy
passed by him. He made eye contact with the man behind the wheel, and saw a tiny blonde girl in
the passenger seat. Kino instantly knew it was her. He trailed the car but the driver kept moving,
slowly. Finally, the driver pulled the car to the side of the road a few hundred metres ahead of him
and pushed open the passenger-side door. Jocelyn slipped out of the car, and ran into Kinos arms.
The kidnapper sped away.
Chief of the Police Department complimented Kino for his bravery.
