The search for a retired couple missing for three weeks in North Carolina's mountains has been suspended.
Brevard Rescue Squad official Ethan Smith says Sunday was the last day of active searching for 79-year-old John Bryant and his wife, 84-year-old Irene Bryant. The Henderson County couple was last heard from on Oct. 21 when a cell tower received an incomplete 911 call from their telephone.
Smith says about 130 people searched in mountainous Pisgah National Forest on Saturday, and about 15 people looked on Sunday. He says searchers will be dispatched again if there is evidence of the Bryants' whereabouts.
Officials haven't released the identity of a body found Friday about 30 yards from where the Bryants' car was located last week.
