Over a year later, the missile has reportedly been returned:

We’re afraid to ask what sort of deal the Kerry-led State Department struck with the Castros in order to get them to return the missile.
Enough time for them to take it apart, analyze it, test their model til they get it right, then put it back together https://t.co/jVAxNmhkgL
