Amish Girls 'Abducted' In Upstate New York

Police in upstate New York are searching for two young Amish girls who they say were abducted from their family's roadside stand.

The two girls, aged 12 and six, were last seen around 7.30pm on Wednesday assisting a customer near their home inOswegatchie, a rural community about 60 miles from the Canada border.

A witness told police that a passenger in a white 4-door sedan put something into the back seat, and when the car drove off both girls were gone.

St Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells said investigators have little else to go on at this time and are seeking the public's help.

"There's no indication to take us any certain direction at this point," he said.

"We're following all leads. We're making sure that we overturn every stone that we're aware of and we're moving from there."

A statewide Amber Alert was issued to seek the public's assistance.

The girls, identified as Fannie Miller, 12, and six-year-oldDelila Miller, were both wearing dark blue dresses with blue aprons and black bonnets.
