Sarm’s family have issued a new plea, urging anyone with information about Sarm’s whereabouts to come forward:

“It is now over three weeks since Sarm went missing. 25 days in which we get more and more concerned as we wait for news. We know that the Virgin Islands Police Department is doing as much as possible and we are happy that Hampshire Police is also assisting their investigation.

We want to say a heartfelt thank you to the local community for continuing their efforts to help search for Sarm. If we could travel then we would; we just want to be on the island helping with the search and we dream of being able to wrap our arms round our darling daughter.”

As a friends group, we are doing everything we can to help support her parents and each other. No matter how insignificant something may seem, the tiniest detail may be relevant so we would encourage people to come forward and speak to VIPD immediately.

If anyone has any information that may help in the search for Sarm they should contact VIPD Major Crime department; Criminal Investigation Bureau at 774-2211 xxt 5617 or 5554.
