DA: Amish girls safe after apparent abduction

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – Authorities say two missing Amish girls have turned up safe about 24 hours after they were apparently abducted from their family’s roadside farm stand in northern New York.

St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain says the girls turned up cold and wet but unharmed Thursday evening at a home in Richville, about 13 miles from where they disappeared in the rural town of Oswegatchie.

Word of 12-year-old Fannie and 7-year-old Delila Miller’s return came shortly after about 200 people attended a prayer vigil at Cornerstone Wesleyan Church.

The sisters vanished at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday after a white car pulled up to the farm stand.

No other details about what happened to the girls were immediately available.
