OSWEGATCHIE, N.Y. (AP) -- A prayer vigil is planned in a northern New York community stunned by the abduction of two young Amish girls from the family's roadside farm stand.
St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells says a wide-ranging search continues for 7-year-old Delila Miller and 12-year-old Fannie Miller.
They vanished at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday after a white car pulled up to the stand in the rural town of Oswegatchie.
Both girls were wearing dark blue dresses with blue aprons and black bonnets. Because the Amish tend to shun modern technology, police have no photographs of the girls. But Wells says the family has agreed to the release of a sketch of the older child.
Rusty Bissell, pastor at nearby Cornerstone Wesleyan Church, has invited the community to a prayer service Thursday evening.
