MISSAUKEE COUNTY, Mich. – Michigan State Police say they have found the bodies of a missing Michigan couple.

Jeff Hurley, 34, and Alexandria Foust, 19, were last seen November 7 in Prudenville. The search for the couple, who are from Missaukee County, was put on hold due to hunting season and freezing weather.

Police said they found two bodies in the swampy area, known as "Dead Stream Swamp," last Monday that appeared to match their description. On Thursday, police said they have been positively identified. 

The cause of death for each is pending medical examination and toxicology reports.

A former roommate of Foust said Hurley was a positive person.

"One thing that Jeff taught me was not to worry about what other people think and be yourself, be confident, go out there, have fun, enjoy every day, live it to the fullest,” David Mousseau said.
