ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The search for two missing Amish sisters who apparently were abducted from their family's roadside farm stand in northern New York ended with their safe return about 24 hours later when they were given a lift home, authorities said.

St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain said the girls turned up cold and wet but unharmed Thursday evening at a home in Richville, near the Canadian border.

That's about 13 miles from where they disappeared in the rural town of Oswegatchie. They asked for help getting home.

Word of 12-year-old Fannie and 7-year-old Delila Miller's return came shortly after about 200 people attended a prayer vigil at Cornerstone Wesleyan Church.

The sisters vanished at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday after a white car pulled up to the farm stand. An Amber Alert was issued shortly after.

No other details about what happened to the girls were immediately available.

A neighbor who visited the family after hearing about the girls' safe return said she spoke with one of their brothers. He said they were well but being checked out.
