ALBANY, N.Y.  — A New York sheriff says two young Amish sisters now safe at home were kidnapped from their family farm stand and police are seeking more than one person responsible.

St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells said Friday the girls are in good health and provided information that's helping the investigation.

Authorities still aren't releasing any details about what happened to the girls during their daylong disappearance. They say they don't want to compromise a potential prosecution. Descriptions of the suspects and their vehicle are also being withheld.

Seven-year-old Delila Miller and 12-year-old Fannie Miller vanished Wednesday evening after a car pulled up to the roadside stand in Oswegatchie (ahs-wee-GAH'-chee), near the Canadian border.

They turned up unharmed Thursday evening at a house in Richville, about 15 miles away.
