Bomohs help in jungle hunt for missing Irish teen

Police in Malaysia searching for missing teenager Nora Quoirin have set up a hotline in the hope of getting new information on her disappearance.

Hundreds have joined in the hunt for Nora Quoirin, seven days after the 15-year-old mysteriously disappeared from a Malaysian holiday resort.

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. "We are appealing to anyone who has information about Nora to help us to find her".

The reward money was donated anonymously by a Belfast-based businessman as the search for the young girl, who has serious learning difficulties, expanded to some 350 people and has now drafted in officers from Scotland Yard, France, Ireland and Interpol.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Met Police have joined Irish police in providing support to authorities in Malaysia.

She reportedly vanished barefoot from the hotel and into the dense Malaysian jungle, but no clues have been found there in the week since she has been missing.

They are treating her as a missing person but do not rule out a possible criminal element in her disappearance.

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

Quoirin's family, which has lived in London for 20 years, arrived August 3 for a two-week stay at the Dusun, a small resort located in a durian orchard next to a forest reserve 63 kilometers (39 miles) south of Kuala Lumpur.

Those with any information are urged to call the police hotline at 011-1228 5058 or email ops@lbtrust.org.

Quoirin's family arrived August 3 for a two-week stay at the Dusun, a small resort located in a durian orchard next to a forest reserve 63 kilometers south of Kuala Lumpur.

Some 300 Malaysian searchers aided by drones and sniffer dogs are scouring the forest area near the resort, playing recordings of Nora's mother calling out to her.

THE PARENTS of missing teenager Nora Quoirin have offered a substantial sum of money for any information on her whereabouts. "Most important now, the child will be released", he said in the video.

Nora, whose mother is from Belfast, was discovered missing from her room the following morning with a window open.

Meabh Quoirin made an emotional appeal for help in finding her daughter.
