Police Search for Two Abducted Amish Girls

OSWEGATCHIE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities are searching for two Amish girls they say were abducted from a roadside stand in northern New York.

UPDATE: Girls Returned Home

The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office says police patrols are out searching Thursday morning for two young girls – one a 7-year-old, the other a 12-year-old.

Officials issued an Amber Alert for the two girls after they were abducted around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the rural town of Oswegatchie. That’s 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.
