(Newser) – Two Amish girls tending a roadside farm stand in upstate New York disappeared yesterday, and police think they were abducted, reports the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. A witness says 7-year-old Delila Miller and 12-year-old Fannie Miller went to wait on a customer in a white sedan and were apparently forced into the vehicle, according to the Amber Alert issued in St. Lawrence County. Police have no family photos of the girls, given the Amish community's avoidance of modern gadgets, reports AP. The girls live in the town of Oswegatchie, about 150 miles northwest of Albany and near the Canadian border.
