MISSING: Oscar Suarez and Magdalena Devil. (GP)

THE FAMILIES of missing American couple Oscar Suarez and Magdalena Devil are taking matters into their own hands.

They have decided to launch a new search for the New Jersey pair who disappeared at sea after renting a jet ski at Holetown, St James, for a 30-minute ride on June 24.

While the family declined to speak to the local media when they recently visited the island, Susanna Cruz, the sister of 32-year-old Oscar, made the announcement on Tuesday during a sit-down interview with American television network Fox News.

“We plan to go on Thursday morning. We will likely fly to a neighbouring island to charter a boat or ferry because there is nothing directly from Barbados to go the entire coastline and pretty much search ourselves as a family,” she said.
