And they are reported to have asked for UK help in pressing for further investigation in USVI. Apologies if this has already been reported, I didn't see it in either VI forum.

I can't read that story from the Guardian here in the UK. Here's a link that isn't behind a wall here... https://news.sky.com/story/sarm-hes...nished-from-her-boyfriends-boat-12250163

I have been following the story. I can’t remember there was a notice sent out about joining an organized effort by boat and divers to grid search areas. ( This was a grass roots group, not the police)

It was on FOX and Friends morning news today too. (I know Carole wasn’t watching!🤪)
Strange the boyfriend would not allow USCG to search the boat.☹️

I have been following, it is a sad story so far with so many unanswered questions. My heart goes out to her family.

Yes, that is weird the boyfriend wouldn't let them search the boat. Not looking good for her. Link

I suspect the boyfriend may have things on his boat unrelated to the disappearance of the girlfriend he would rather not have seized. Still his attitude about the entire event is strange to say the least.

That could be the case, but why wouldn't he just get rid of whatever it was?? I fear the poor lady is gone though.

No, this is not evidence of guilt but evidence of being smart. He contacted a lawyer and the lawyer's advice was not to allow anyone aboard.

The police don’t have a clue on where to start an investigation.
If they found a ketchup stain on one of his shirts that would be in their eyes as a blood stain with out even having it analyzed.
