In a report by John Friot of 7News, the girls were taken by two unknown suspects on Wednesday evening in Oswegatchie in New York and were brought to an abandoned house in Bigelow.

The girls were able to escape from the house and had been frantically looking for help.

The girls were reportedly found safe at a Richville home, nearly 13 miles away from where they were allegedly taken, according to St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain.

A source close to the family said the girls were well and were being taken care of.

Police reports also confirmed that the Miller girls were abducted by two men whose identities have not been known.

A witness claims to have seen the two girls waiting at their family's roadside stand, and when a customer left, the girls were nowhere to be seen.

During the time of the abduction, the two girls had dark blue dresses on. They were also wearing blue aprons and black bonnets, according to the authorities.

Police investigators went on a frantic search following the kidnapping, but their search was slowed down because the Miller family did not have a picture of the girls.

Family neighbor Dot Simmons said the Miller girls have been routinely selling jams, produce and other farm product at their stand.

Fannie and Delila are among the youngest of the 13 children of Mose and Bob Miller.

The Miller's live in St. Lawrence County, home of the second-biggest Amish community in New York.
