Amish Girls Abducted From Roadside Stand in Rural New York

By    |   Thursday, 14 Aug 2014 02:50 PM

Two missing Amish girls were allegedly abducted Wednesday from their family’s roadside stand in rural New York, and authorities are seeking information about a customer the girls were serving when they disappeared.

Delila Miller, 7, and Fannie Miller, 12, were waiting on a customer at their family’s business about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday near Oswegatchie, in northern New York.

“Witness saw passenger of vehicle throw something in back then get in back seat,” the Amber Alert issued on the girls said. “Vehicle left scene and victims were gone.”

The vehicle is described as a white four-door sedan, the Amber Alert said. The girls were both wearing dark blue dresses, blue aprons, and black bonnets, and there are no photographs available of the children.

Sheriff Kevin Wells told Time Warner News in Rochester that the number of leads increased in the abducted girls' case on Thursday, but said he wouldn’t comment on the nature of the information. Forest rangers and divers were searching areas around the family property, but Wells said that was standard protocol in the situation.

The Amish community doesn’t typically take photographs, but Wells said the lack of images of the girls has not hindered the investigation at this point; he told TWN that a sketch artist could be brought in if necessary.

Wells said there were “quite a few” witnesses, verifying what they already knew and developing new leads.

Answering a reporter’s question about the department’s unwillingness to label this an abduction, Wells said, “We’re always going to react that way because that would be the worst-case scenario, so that would be the direction that we’re going. But at the same time, again we’re trying to make sure we cover other bases also.”

Anyone with any information on this abduction is asked to call the St. Lawrence Co. Sheriff's Office at (866)NYS-AMBER or dial 911 to provide information on a report or sighting.
