OSWEGATCHIE, NY (WSYR/FOX) - Authorities are still looking for Amish girls who went missing in upstate New York.

The sisters, 6-year-old Delila Miller and 12-year-old Fannie, were last seen at the family's roadside stand in Oswegatchie, about 150 miles from the Canada border.

Police said the two girls went to wait on a customer at the stand. According to a witness, a passenger put something inside a vehicle, and when it drove off the girls were gone.

The state police issued an Amber Alert that is still in effect.

"At this point, we have interest in possibly a white four-door sedan or vehicle similar," said St. Lawrence County Kevin Wells. "We need to remember who we are getting vehicle descriptions from and the range they're away from the vehicle. We're looking for what people may have seen from 6 o'clock on."

The girls were wearing dark blue dresses with blue aprons and black bonnets, but Wells said it's possible their abductor changed the girls' clothes and cut their waist-length hair.
