 UPDATE:  GIRLS FOUND SAFE

Authorities are searching for two Amish girls who were abducted from a roadside stand in northern New York.

The St. Lawrence County Sheriff's Office says police patrols were out searching Thursday morning for 6-year-old Delila Miller and 12-year-old Fannie Miller.

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.

Fannie Miller is a white, approximately 12 years old with brown hair and brown eyes. She is approximately 5 feet tall and weighs about 90 pounds. Fannie was last seen wearing dark blue dress with blue apron and black bonnet. The victim is also crosseyed.

Delila Miller is a white, approximately 6 years old with brown hair and brown eyes. She is approximately 4 feet tall and weighs about 50 pounds. Delila was last seen wearing dark blue dress with blue apron and black bonnet. Victim has round scar on forehead and is missing front teeth.

The suspect has been identified as White 4-door sedan. Vehicle is small with unknown plate number.
