A Search for a UK woman who disappeared in Caribbean after she was last seen on a yacht over a week ago is still continuing.
Sarm Heslop, 41, was reported missing on March 8 to the Virgin Islands Police Department.
According to reports, Sarm was last seen aboard the Siren Song that was mooredÂ in Frank Bay,Â St John.Â She is aboutÂ 5 feet 7 inches in heightÂ and has a tattoo on her left shoulder.
On March 10, divers from various local and federal law enforcement agencies, and other citizens, formed a dive search party to try to locate Sarm,Â unfortunately, this effort proved unsuccessful.
The Virgin Islands Police Department in an update on March 15 said the search continues for the missing woman who had been staying with her American boyfriend.
Miss Heslop, a former flight attendant, is known to have gone for dinner with her partner on the day of the incident in St John, before returning to the yacht and going to bed. She was missing by 02:00 local time (06:00 GMT), friends said.
A group of friends, who have set up a Missing Sarm Heslop Facebook pageÂ to share information about her disappearance, said in a statement: “We are asking for an urgent and thorough investigation.
“We have heard that Sarm’s phone, passport and all belongings were left on the boat, where she was living with her boyfriend.
“She would not just disappear, leaving no trace. She is savvy and sensible, it’s not like her at all, it just doesn’t make sense.”
The group of friends has thanked locals who had helped in the search for Miss Heslop.
“They have been so amazing but we urge them not to give up until she is found or we have more information,” they said.
