(Newser) – The jet ski rented by a New Jersey couple before they went missing in Barbados last month has been found, local officials say. Days after arriving on the island for vacation, Oscar Suarez, 32, and Magdalena Devil, 25, rented the jet ski on Holetown Beach June 24 and never returned it; they haven't been seen since. The search for the couple was called off June 30, CNN reports. The jet ski, bearing a registration number that matches the one the couple rented, was recovered Saturday about 250 miles northwest of Barbados, off the coast of the island of Guadeloupe, by a French navy ship, USA Today reports. There was no sign of Suarez or Devil. (Suarez "never goes a day without FaceTiming his kids.")
