Kidnappers Lured Amish Girls With Puppy

The pair-- 39 year old Stephen Howells and 25 year old Nicole Vaisey-- premeditated the girl's capture-- stopping at their farmstand with a puppy in the backseat. The younger child got into the vehicle to see the puppy first, and when the older sister followed, the abductors pushed her into the car and took off. Both are charged with first degree kidnapping and are being held at the Saint Lawrence County jail. The Watertown district attorney announced Tuesday there may have been 3 other victims-- in addition to the two Amish girls.
