Amber Alert cancelled, two missing Amish girls found

UPDATE 10pm 8/14: Missing Amish girls Fannie and Delila Miller have been safely returned to their parents.  The NYS Amber Alert has been canceled.

ORIGINAL POST: OSWEGATCHIE, NY (AP) - Authorities say they're continuing the search for two Amish girls they say may have abducted from a roadside stand in northern New York.
 
The St. Lawrence County Sheriff's Office says police patrols are 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 apparently abducted around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday from the family's property in the rural town of Oswegatchie, on the Canadian border 95 miles northwest of Syracuse.
 
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.
