WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) The family of a missing cruise passenger who disappeared February 29 is speaking out for the first time, demanding more answers about the disappearance of their loved one.

The FBI said Fariba Amani, 47, was reported missing by her boyfriend, Ramzi Golshani, 46, during a cruise on the Bahamas Celebration.

The two were traveling back from the Grand Bahamas when the trip twisted into a nightmare.

Golshani told investigators he last saw Amani at 1:00 a.m. at the gift shop on the boat. The FBI said Golshani did not alert authorities until 8:00 a.m.

Days after Amani vanished, her family is still without answers or clues.

"Everything she can't do, we want to do for her right now because we know if the table were turned, she would do exactly that for us," said Sally Amani, the victim's sister speaking to CBC News in Vancouver, Canada.

Amani's family is doing everything they can from the distance of California and Amani's home in British Columbia, Canada.

All they know is the little investigators are telling them.

"We're devastated right now. We don't know where she is, we don't know what's going on, we're assuming, yes we're assuming the worst, we're assuming she fell overboard and we don't know how, who did this, what's happening, it's all a mystery," said Helen Amani, the victim's sister-in-law.

When asked for an update on the investigation, the FBI emailed the response that no information was available.

Celebration Cruise Line said it did not have any update and the U.S. Coast Guard has since canceled the search.

Amani's family now wants answers from the last person to see her alive, her boyfriend.

"The FBI has all sides of my story. If I had any percent of guilt, I would not be out," said Ramiz Golshani, the victim's boyfriend in an interview with CBC News in Vancouver, Canada.

With so little information and so many questions still floating around, Amani's family is now turning to the passengers aboard the cruise.

"Maybe they saw an argument in the restaurant , maybe they saw something going on," said Helen Amani.

The cruise company said there were cameras on board, but a review of the tapes did not show Amani.

The case is now solely in the hands of the FBI.
