Two bodies found in northern New Jersey’s Passaic River this week have been identified as of two friends who were reported missing amid torrential flooding caused by Hurricane Ida.

Nidhi Rana, 18, and Ayush Rana, 21, were last seen around 9:30 p.m. on Sept. 1 when their car began floating towards a spot where the water flows underground toward the river. The vehicle was later found in the same area of Passaic, a few blocks from the river.
