The family of missing Sarm Heslop have pleaded with her boyfriend to come forward and give them answers after she disappeared from his boat in the Caribbean.
Ryan Bane, 44, is the only person of interest in the case but has not surfaced since detectives admitted losing track of him in early July.
Heslop, 41, vanished on March 8 from Bane's boat, which was moored off the US Virgin Islands.
Her parents are appealing for Bane to come forward and answer questions about her sudden disappearance.
'They say time heals — but not when your daughter is missing. How can you move on when you have no answers?', her father Peter Heslop said.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
'We want, need and deserve answers as to what happened to our daughter, sister and friend. We ask Bane to come forward to help us find those answers'.

Heslop's mother Brenda Street said the mystery surrounding her daughters sudden disappearance was 'traumatising, confusing and upsetting'.
She called on Bane to answer for discrepancies in the case, such as the time he took to contact the coast guard and his failure to raise the alarm as soon as he realised his girlfriend was missing.
According to Bane, the couple had dinner together on March 7 at around 10pm before returning to the catamaran where they watched a movie.
He claims he woke up at around 2am by the boat's anchor alarm and found his girlfriend missing.

But coast guard case logs and incident reports seen by The Times paint a different picture.
The documents state Bane was 'heavily intoxicated' when officers arrived on board on March 8, that he refused to provide paperwork, handed over expired credentials, blocked a doorway to prevent a search, and cited his right to remain silent.
Bane went between all the boats near his Leopard 4700 luxury catamaran off the coast of St John, asking for witnesses, but nobody was able to help, according to the logs.
However, many skippers told The Times they did not know Heslop was missing until the following day.
Police issued a fresh appeal for Bane earlier this month, asking him to explain what happened on the night Sarm Heslop disappeared.
