Sarm Heslop missing in US Virgin Islands


Sarm Heslop 1

Southampton resident 41 year old Sarm Joan Lillian Heslop went missing from a catamaran from St. John in the US Virgin Islands in the early hours of Monday March 8, 2021.

Sarm is a Caucasian female, approximately 5ft 8ins, of athletic build, with long dark brown hair. She has a large, colourful tattoo on her shoulder depicting a seahorse, butterfly and flower.



Sarm’s Mum, Brenda, has recently shared her heartbreaking story with the The Mirror including her belief that Sarm was murdered. We hope you will help us to get #justiceforsarm by pressuring the VIPD to investigate our friend’s disappearance, return contact with her family and their representatives, and release the CCTV footage of Sarm’s last known movements by sharing this article.

In May 2022, Sarm’s parents, Brenda & Peter, travelled to St. John, accompanied by staff from the British Consulate General in Miami.

In July, they have made an emotional appeal for more information about their daughter’s disappearance.

Siren Song Catamaran

Sarm was living and working on Siren Song, a charter catamaran owned and operated by her boyfriend, Ryan Bane. The boat was moored just off shore at Frank Bay, St John, USVI and the couple had been ashore for dinner on Sunday 7 March 2021. Sarm was reported missing by Ryan the following day. It was reported that all her belongings, including her phone, were left aboard the catamaran.

The coastguard and Virgin Islands Police Department carried out an extensive search of the ocean and shorelines, however, they found no evidence Sarm had gone into the water. The local St John residents continue to search the island and waters.

Her family & friends are desperately worried about her as it is uncharacteristic of her to disappear without contact.

The Virgin Islands Police Department is asking for the community’s assistance in locating her and asking for any information about her disappearance.



Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Sarm is urged to call:

“You are urged to say something, if you saw something,” said the police force.
