Finding center of overlaping "circles"

I want to find the center of two circle-like objects that overlaps a little bit. The problem is that large parts of the circles are missing, becoming more of moon shapes, therefore a center of mass approach isn't useful. Distance mapping also gives wrong center.
The method can be approximative but should be robust.
Any tips or ideas is welcome.
