American boyfriend of missing 41-year-old Sarm Heslop is seen for the first time since she vanished at 2am on March 8 from his luxury yacht, which he is refusing to allow detectives to search

Ryan Bane, 44, claims girlfriend Sarm Heslop, 41, vanished without trace from his catamaran while it was anchored overnight in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Bane, seen for the first time since her disappearance, has now stopped cooperating with police investigating on the island of St. John. A close friend told Bane was not in hiding but was refusing to speak to the island’s police officers because he didn’t trust them. The Michigan native broke cover Tuesday to take a dinghy to shore to shop for supplies and a six pack of beer before returning to his boat in the late afternoon. Authorities need a warrant to board but are yet to obtain one because Sarm’s March 8 disappearance has not been classified as a criminal inquiry. Bane is currently neither a suspect, nor a person of interest.
