    Friends of missing Sarm Heslop, the United Kingdom woman who vanished from her boyfriend Ryan Bane’s 47-foot luxury catamaran in the U.S. Virgin Islands in March, are raising the alarm over alleged plans to sell the boat while police still haven't searched it.  "A full forensic search of the catamaran Siren Song, of which Sarm was a resident with her boyfriend Ryan Bane, has never been carried out, as no search warrant has so far been granted by U.S. authorities," the group said in a statement Tuesday. "It is now understood that Ryan Bane listed the Siren Song for sale for $229,000, having removed its recognizable name from the vessel’s exterior." Authorities say they never conducted a forensic examination on the vessel after a judge denied their request for a search warrant. The U.S. Coast Guard issued Bane citations the day after Heslop’s disappearance and alleged that he blocked officers’ access to the vessel’s cabin.
