NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - The Royal Barbados Police Force is seeking the assistance of the public in locating two missing tourists from New Jersey.
Missing: Oscar Suarez, 32, and Magdalena DeVille, 25, from Montclair, were staying at Room 49, Discovery Bay Hotel, Trents, St. James.
Police say they arrived in Barbados on Saturday, June 22nd and are scheduled to leave on Saturday.
On Monday, about 2:34 p.m. they rented a jet ski from an operator at Holetown Beach and went out to sea. Both were wearing life jackets.
At about 2:55 p.m., after they did not return, the operator became worried and contacted other operators in the area to carry out a search, but they were not seen.

Police said the hotel said neither had returned to their room.
