Cops: 'Numerous leads' in search for 2 Amish girls story image

OSWEGATCHIE, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say they've received "numerous leads" concerning two Amish girls abducted at a roadside stand in northern New York.

St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells says Thursday that deputies, state troopers, forest rangers and U.S. Border Patrol agents are part of the ongoing search for 7-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 (ahs-wee-GAH'-chee). 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.
