Sarm Heslop’s boyfriend was quick to anger, his ex-wife says

The American boyfriend of missing British woman Sarm Heslop has been described by his ex-wife as quick to anger and narcissistic – as it’s revealed he and his yacht have now left the spot in the US Virgin Islands where she vanished. 

Heslop, 41, was last seen on her 44-year-old boyfriend Ryan Bane’s yacht on the island of St. John in the US Virgin Islands two weeks ago.

Bane has not been cooperating with police investigating the former flight attendant’s disappearance and has refused to allow them to search his yacht. 

The yacht left St. John at some point overnight and it is not clear where Bane is.  

It comes as his ex-wife, Corie Stevenson, told Fox News that he was unpredictable and would often pick fights with women. 

Bane served 21 days in prison back in 2011 for attacking Stevenson after he dragged her out of a truck and smashed her head on the floor, breaking one of her teeth.

Stevenson said Bane would regularly push her around and often called her ‘b***h’ or ‘c**t’ and that he ‘will lie about everything’. 

‘He’s very aggressive with girls, but he doesn’t really wanna get in fights with guys,’ she said.  

The pair were married for six years before divorcing in 2014. 

She said he would ‘fly off the handle’ at any moment and she ‘never ever knew what was gonna set him off’. 

‘If you were just to meet Ryan in the bar, or out anywhere, you would think that he’s awesome. Everyone thinks he’s wonderful. It’s what they’re not seeing behind closed doors,’ she said. 

‘I want people to know about Ryan’s behavior, and then maybe they can keep looking for the girl.’ 

Bane refused to comment when DailyMail.com confronted him on a secluded beach when he made landfall in Great Cruz Bay, St. Thomas on Wednesday.

We asked the Michigan native if he would finally let police search his 47ft catamaran – or whether he was prepared to reveal more about the night Heslop mysteriously vanished.

Bane claims girlfriend Sarm Heslop, 41, vanished without trace from his catamaran while it was anchored overnight in the U.S. Virgin Islands

Heslop’s friends insist they are not ‘pointing fingers’ at Bane but are calling on the American, who moved to the Caribbean in 2015, ‘to provide as many details as possible’ 

Heslop, from Southampton, England, met Bane on Tinder eight months ago. She disappeared from Siren Song, which was moored 120ft from Frank Bay on the extreme western end of St. John on March 8. The couple are pictured together

The charter boat skipper turned and walked away, heading inland with his pet Labrador. 

In the hours after Sarm’s March 8 disappearance Bane told authorities she had vanished without trace while the couple were anchored in picturesque Frank Bay.

Two weeks later the case is at a standstill, however, after wealthy Bane lawyered up and blocked detectives from conducting a search of his $500,000 vessel.

Authorities need a warrant to board but are yet to obtain one because Sarm’s disappearance has not been classified as a criminal inquiry and Bane is currently neither a suspect, nor a person of interest.

DailyMail.com previously revealed that Bane had been holed up on board Siren Song, which was still anchored in St. John until Thursday. 

A DailyMail.com reporting team followed him in a motorboat and caught up with Bane as he tied up his dinghy before walking up a trail towards a grocery store.

Bane refused to answer and his attorney issued a statement, saying: ‘At this time we are not fielding any other requests for interviews/statements’.
