Dive Crews Suspend Search In Passaic For Missing College Students Nidhi Rana, Ayush Rana

PASSAIC, N.J. (CBSNewYork) -- Dive crews in Passaic suspended the search for two missing college students believed to have been swept away in flood waters.

Nidhi Rana, a Seton Hall student, and Ayush Rana, a Montclair State student, were together when the remnants of Hurricane Ida hit.

The students were last seen around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday getting out of their car near a storm drain that empties into the Passaic River.

Search teams scoured the exact area Friday as the family desperately waiting for updates.

"My wife, she's not eating nothing. Very dangerous situation at home. Serious matter," said Rana's father.
