Arrests Made In Amish Girls Abduction

(Albany, NY) -- A couple is in custody in the abduction of two Amish sisters in upstate New York. St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells says the girls helped lead to the arrest of the two.
Steven Howells and Nicole Vaisey were arrested at their home Friday about 20 miles from where the girls were taken Wednesday. Wells said the couple planned the kidnapping and that there was a good chance of more victims. They are being held on first-degree kidnapping charges.
Authorities say the girls, aged 12 and seven were dropped off 15 miles from their home where they knocked on the door of the nearest house for help. The man who opened the door recognized the girls from news reports and took them home.
