Abductors of Amish girls may have planned more kidnappings

Missing Amish Girls

CANTON, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a New York couple arrested in the kidnapping of two young Amish sisters may have also planned to abduct other children. St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells says “there was the definite potential” of additional victims besides the 7-year-old and 12-year-old, who were returned to their family late Thursday.

Stephen Howells Jr. and Nicole Vaisey are being held without bail on charges of first-degree kidnapping with the intent to physically harm or sexually abuse the girls.
