OSWEGATCHIE, N.Y. (August 14, 2014) Authorities say they've received "numerous leads" about two Amish girls who were abducted from a roadside produce stand in northern New York.
Deputies, state troopers, forest rangers and U.S. Border Patrol agents are involved in the search for Delila Miller, 7, and Fannie Miller, 12, St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells said Thursday.
Officials issued an Amber Alert for the two girls after they were abducted at around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the rural town of Oswegatchie, N.Y., 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.
