OSWEGATCHIE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities in northern New York state are searching for two Amish girls they say may have been abducted from their family's roadside stand.
The St. Lawrence County Sheriff's Office says police patrols are out searching for 6-year-old Delila and 12-year-old Fannie Miller.
Officials have issued an Amber Alert for the two girls after they went missing around 7:30 last night from their family's property in the rural town of Oswegatchie (ah-swee-GAH'-chee), on the Canadian border.
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.
