If I understand correctly you didn't even find the rolling element? In this case you should notice obvious metal contamination in your grease because the element probably fell apart as completely damaged. I suspect you should also see some damage on the rings and that should be noticed with measurements.  

I would really doubt that one rolling element would deteriorate where one would “...notice obvious metal contamination in your grease because the element probably fell apart as completely damaged”.  The OP can correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems there is little if any apparent damage on the other rollers.
