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 Daily Mail. We hope you will help us to pressure the VIPD to continue investigating our friend’s disappearance and to release the CCTV footage of Sarm’s last known movements by sharing this article.
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.
