I have the following code and need to return an array of numbers, but I just don't know what needs to be done in the method, and I have to use String because this result is passed to other methods....

Unless you know in advance how many "personId"s you have, and thus the size of the array you want to create, I think the best way is to create an ArrayList to hold them temporarily. Then change the List to a String array which you assign to allNumbers.
Something like this:
List ids = new ArrayList(); ids.add( personId ); // end of loop allNumbers = (String)( ids.toArray( new String[ ids.size() ]));
