Town of Oswegatchie, NY (WBNG Binghamton) An Amber Alert has been cancelled for two Amish girls who have been abducted.

Authorities say Fannie and Delilia Miller have been found alive and are back with their parents. The alert was cancelled as of 9:47 p.m. Thursday.

After a car dropped the two off in the town of Richville, the two girls walked to the closest house. The man who opened the door knew who they were and drove them home.

Police said the two seemed to be healthy, but were "cold and wet".

Authorities had been looking for the two girls since 7:20 p.m. Wednesday, August 13, when they were taken on State Highway 812/ Mt. Alone Road, in the town of Oswegatchie.

The girls were last seen at a roadside stand. The two were waiting on a customer in a small, white four-door sedan with an unknown license plate number.

According to the sheriff's office, witnesses said they saw the passenger of the vehicle throw something in the back of the car and then jump in the back seat.

When the vehicle left the area, the two girls were also gone.

It is not yet known who took the girls, or if any arrests were made.
