Two bodies were discovered, bound together, on the banks of New York City's Hudson River on Wednesday, the NYPD said.
The two women were tied together at their feet with what appeared to be duct tape, NYPD Lt. Paul Ng said. They also appeared to be bound together at the waist, he said.

There were no obvious signs of trauma and the women were pronounced dead at the scene.
Police are not naming them until the family can be notified.
Both women are described as 25 to 30 years old, 5'3" to 5'6" tall, medium build, medium skin tone and shoulder length curly dark hair. Both were last seen wearing a black jacket with fur trim and black leggings.
