Clarification sought after reports of body found in search for Nora Quoirin

"The police teams (from England, France and Ireland) are only assisting us in the investigation into Nora Anne's disappearance and are not involved in the search-and-rescue operation", SAC Che Zakaria told a press conference at the Pantai police station in Seremban on Monday.

The mother of a Franco-Irish teenager who went missing from a Malaysian rainforest resort fought back tears Saturday as she thanked the hundreds-strong team hunting for the schoolgirl.

Praising the efforts of police carrying out the search, they said they had chose to offer the reward "to help their investigation".

The family of missing Irish teenager, Nora Quoirin, is offering a reward of over ten thousand euro for information on her whereabouts.

Negeri Sembilan state police chief Mohamad Mat Yusop said police have already made voice recordings of Nora Anne Quoirin's mother and family members.

"Nora is still missing, and she is very vulnerable, and we need to do everything we can to bring her home".

Her family however, said Quoirin, who has learning and developmental disabilities, wouldn't have wandered off on her own and has been abducted.

The family of Nora Quoirin, who went missing in a Malaysia jungle more than a week ago, have offered a £10,000 reward for anyone with information that leads to finding their daughter. The search for her has been taken up on a full-scale and the police also suspect the element of criminality in the girl going missing.

The family said the money was donated by an anonymous Belfast-based business.

He had also joined the rescue team and spoke briefly with the workers from various agencies including the police, Fire and Rescue Department, Civil Defence Force, People's Volunteer Corps (Rela), General Operations Force, and the Federal Reserve Unit.

The 15-year-old was born with holoprosencephaly, a disorder which affects brain development, meaning that her communication is limited and she struggles with co-ordination.

In a video broadcast on local media, she added: "We want to say thank you to each and every one of you".

"You have given up your time especially at a special festival time", she said, referring to Hari Raya Haji, the Islamic "festival of sacrifice". "This is extremely traumatic for the whole family", it said.

August 9: Police investigated whether footprints found in the forest where Nora went missing belonged to the missing teen.

"She looks younger [than 15], she is not capable of taking care of herself, and she won't understand what is going on", the statement said.

"It means the world to us and we are so grateful for everything that you are doing for us". "We are so impressed with your effort, your expertise, your dedication".
