Police search for 2 abducted Amish girls
Oswegatchie, N.Y. • Authorities are searching for two Amish girls they say were abducted from a roadside stand in northern New York.
The St. Lawrence County Sheriff's Office says police patrols are out searching Thursday morning for 7-year-old Delila Miller and 12-year-old Fannie Miller.
Officials issued an Amber Alert for the two girls after they were abducted around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the rural town of Oswegatchie (ahs-wee-GAH'-chee). That's on the Canadian border 150 miles northwest of Albany.
Police say the girls went to wait on a customer at the family's roadside stand. A witness saw a passenger in a vehicle put something into the back seat, and when the vehicle drove off the children were gone.
Both girls were wearing dark blue dresses with blue aprons and black bonnets.
