UPDATE: Both girls found alive on Thursday 08/14/2014 and returned to their Oswegatchie home.

OSWEGATCHIE, N.Y. -- Police in northern New York activated an Amber Alert on Wednesday night for two Amish girls believed taken against their will.

According to deputies, Delila Miller, 6, and Fannie Miller, 12, went to a roadside vegetable stand in the town of Oswegatchie, St. Lawrence County, around 7 p.m. Wednesday to wait on a customer.

A witness reported seeing a passenger put something in the back seat and when the car left, the two girls were gone.

The vehicle is described as a white four-door sedan.

Delila is described as 4 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 5 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.

Anyone with information on this reported abduction is asked to call police at 911.

Because the girls are Amish, there are no photos of them, but authorities have released a sketch of one of the girls, Fannie Miller.
