Amber Alert issued for missing Amish girls


OSWEGATCHIE, N.Y. -- A statewide search for two missing Amish girls who police say were taken from a roadside stand Wednesday night.

According to CBS 6 in Albany, an Amber Alert is appearing on signs for drivers to be on the lookout for a white 4-door sedan, which a witness said was at the roadside stand before the girls disappeared.

Oswegatchie is about 150 miles from Albany, near the Canadian border.

Fannie Miller, 12, is described as being approximately 5 feet tall, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Delila Miller, 6, is about 4 feet tall, with brown hair and brown eyes. She has a round scar on her forehead and is missing front teeth.

Both girls were wearing traditional Amish clothing -- dark blue dresses with blue aprons and black bonnets.

According to the Amber Alert issued late Wednesday night by the New York State Police, the two girls went to their roadside stand to wait on a customer in a small white 4-door sedan at about 7:20 p.m. A witness saw the passenger of the vehicle throw something in the back seat of the car and then get in the back of the car. When the sedan drove off, the two girls were gone.

Anyone with information is asked to call the St. Lawrence County Sheriff's at 866-NYS-AMBER or dial 911.
