OSWEGATCHIE, N.Y. - Authorities are still following up on leads on the disappearance of two Amish girls. The girls have been returned to their family Thursday night.

St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells said at a press conference Friday afternoon that there are no new details to share at this time.

Fannie Miller, 12, and Delila Miller, 6, were dropped off in the town of Richville, N.Y.  After the girls were dropped off, they walked to the closet house.

According to St. Lawrence County District Attorney, Mary Rain, the girls were still wearing their Amish attire. The man recognized them from media reports. Police would not say whether the girls were injured.

The St. Lawrence County Sheriff's Office confirmed that they are looking for more than one person. The search is primarily in St. Lawrence County. According to WWNY-TV, police are searching a home in Hermon, N.Y. for possible evidence in the possible abduction.

On Wednesday night, the two girls were helping a customer at their farm stand along New York State Highway 812/Mount Alone Road when they disappeared. A witness saw a passenger in the car throw something into the back of a four door, white sedan. An AMBER alert was issued a short time later.

Even though the girls are back at home, police say, the search is still active.

The investigation is ongoing and FOX 44 and ABC 22 will provide updates when they become available.
