Two bodies found in the Passaic River this week have been identified as two people missing from New Jersey following flooding from Ida.

Officials said the victims were identified just around 2:30 p.m. today as Nidhi Rana and Ayush Rana.

Nidhi Rana was a first-year commuter student at Seton Hall.

The Essex County Prosecutor's Office said Thursday a man's body was found near milepost five on Route 21.

Ida's flooding claimed the lives of at least 27 people in New Jersey with several still missing.
