Search for missing Amish girls ends with safe return

By Michelle Kapusta,

The search for two missing Amish sisters from New York ended after the girls safely returned home.

According to the Associated Press, 7-year-old Delila Miller and 12-year-old Fannie Miller, both turned up at a house in Richville, near the Canadian border on Thursday evening.

Authorities are now trying to piece together exactly what happened that brought them approximately 15 miles away from where they disappeared a day earlier.

Officials are not releasing many details about the case, as the Amish are private people, but they have said that the girls were unharmed and have spoken with investigators.

Sheriff Kevin Wells told WWNY-TV that at this point, the case is far from over.

“We have the safe return of the two girls, but at the same time we have a lot of work to do. There’s still been a crime committed here, these girls were still taken away from their homes.”

The girls vanished from their family’s farm stand in Oswegatchie on Wednesday after a car pulled up to them.

An Amber Alert had been issued after the sisters went missing.
