Do they need to file a US return even though they do not have any US income? 

Yes.  US citizens owe tax and a tax return on WORLDWIDE income.  You can exclude income from taxation (but not reporting on a return), or take a credit for tax paid to another jurisdiction, or even sometimes as a deduction on Sch A.  Which works best depends on what they qualify for, how much money is involved, and other factors - but no double dipping!  The webinar Margaret mentioned may be a big help.  You can also read the instructions for Form 2555 (foreign earned income exclusion), and/or Form 1116 (foreign tax credit) to see if those help you.
