Delia Miller, 6, and Fannie Miller, 12, two Amish sisters, were working with their parents at a stand on Mt Alone Road off of Route 812 in Oswegatchie, NY when they went missing around 7 p.m., on Wednesday.

One witness stated they saw a white 4-door sedan pull up and put something in the back seat and when the car pulled away the two girls were gone.

Amish culture avoids modern technology and there is no photograph of the two sisters and the police can only issue a description and a stock photograph of the back of a child showing the clothing they are wearing.

Delila is described as four-feet-tall with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a dark blue dress with a blue apron and black bonnet. She has a round scar on her forehead and is missing some front teeth.

Deputies describe Fannie Miller as five-feet-tall, also with brown hair and brown eyes. She too wore a dark blue dress with blue apron and black bonnet. Fannie is also cross-eyed.

St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells says the girls speak Pennsylvania Dutch, and one of the girls speaks English, WWNY-TV in Watertown reports.

The police believe they may have been abducted and being held against their will. Anyone with information on this reported abduction is asked to call police at 911. A command post has been set up in Oswegatchie.

On Thursday morning, officials stated they had received numbers leads regarding the sisters, reports ABC-7 News, but so far the children are still missing.
