Two young Amish girls who were abducted near their family home in upstate New York were found unharmed Thursday night, and police are now trying to determine who kidnapped them and why.
St. Lawrence County Dist. Atty. Mary Rain told the Los Angeles Times that Fannie Miller, 12, and Delia Miller, 6, were dropped off by their kidnappers outside a home in Richville around 8 p.m. Thursday, nearly 20 miles from the highway in Heulevton where they were kidnapped late Wednesday night.
"The investigation is answering some of those questions; I just can't provide the answers at this point … we have directions from the young ladies on where to begin our search for these people, persons or people," Rain said.
It was not clear if the girls were targeted because of their Amish heritage. Rain said that "can't be ruled out" at this stage.
