(CNN) —  

The remains of a man and woman found this week on a beach in Texas have been identified as a couple from New Hampshire who had been camping there, according to a Kleberg County Sheriff’s Office release obtained Friday by CNN affiliate KZTV.

James Lawrence Butler III and Michelle Elaine Butler were reported missing on October 23 after family and friends lost contact with them.

Their remains were found Sunday on a Padre Island beach in Corpus Christi by a Kleburg County Deputy. Chief Deputy Jaime Garza told CNN they were buried in the sand.

Their deaths were ruled homicides by the Nueces County medical examiner’s office. It didn’t release information about the cause of death.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of the Butlers on the tragic loss of their loved ones,” the sheriff’s office said in a news release.

On October 15, the couple set up their camping trailer near the spot on the beach where they were found. Someone communicated with them the next day, officials said.

The sheriff’s office has not identified any suspects but said it will release more information about the case Monday at a news conference.

The couple had been traveling around the country since June 2018, taking part time jobs, officials said.

The couple was from Rumney, New Hampshire.
