Prosecutor: Amish girls found safe spoke to police story image

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A prosecutor in northern New York says two young Amish girls found safe a day after they disappeared from their family's farm stand have given investigators information she hopes will soon lead to an arrest.

St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain says Friday she can't comment on what happened to 7-year-old Delila Miller and 12-year-old Fannie Miller, who vanished Wednesday evening after a car pulled up to their family's farm stand in Oswegatchie.

She said she doesn't want to compromise any future prosecution by releasing details.

The girls turned up unharmed Thursday evening at a house in Richville, near the Canadian border. That's about 15 miles from where they disappeared. They asked for help getting home.

Rain says the girls are healthy.

She also says the episode has left the peaceful rural community feeling vulnerable.
