That depends a) how honest the person is ("yes sir they're both my bags") and b) what luggage allowance they have.
If travelling with one bag each but with an allowance of 2pcs, one person could collect the bags and re-check them both in his own name, with the other person technically travelling with none. If they had 1pc each, then yes they would both need to be there, as no individual bag would be accepted without its owner.
