Authorities have identified the two women whose bodies, bound together with duct tape, were found floating along New York City's Hudson River earlier this week.

The bodies of Tala Farea, 16, and Rotana Farea, 22, were found on rocks near the river off Riverside Park Monday afternoon, said police.

The two went missing in late August.

The cause of their deaths has not yet been established.

Police said their bodies washed up on the shore, bound together with duct tape, facing each other.

They were pronounced dead at the scene, along the riverbanks on Manhattan's Upper West Side, police said.

How should autonomous vehicles be programmed?
The idea of robots making real-time decisions on who should live and who should die may sound far-fetched. However, there were some fascinating differences when the researchers broke the data into regions .

Sketches were released of the two women who were found near the Hudson River in New York City.

The victims were found unconscious and unresponsive, and there was no obvious signs of trauma.

Although authorities arrived around 2.40pm to the scene near West 68th Street and Riverside Boulevard, it wasn't until 5pm that medical examiners removed the young women from the riverbank.

The women were described as both being 25- to 30-years-old, 5-foot-3 to 5-foot-6, medium build, medium skin tone, and shoulder length curly dark hair.

All calls are strictly confidential.
