Malaysia: Parents of missing teenager covinced their daughter was abducted

A rescuer searches for Nora Quoirin

The parents of a Irish teenager missing for nearly a week in Malaysia have thanked teams taking part in a widespread search operation.

Authorities have not ruled out a kidnapping, and her distraught family have now offered up a £10,000 reward for information leading to her safety.

It is so far unclear whether the footprints are that of the missing 15-year-old, someone involved in her disappearance, or unrelated to the investigation. A source said that authorities could keep the search going for 40 days, given that it concerns a visitor to the country.

Search goes on: Family photos of Nora Quoirin who disappeared nearly a week ago.

Negeri Sembilan Police Chief Mohamad Mat Yusop said Sunday that police are investigating all angles, including reports that villagers heard early in the morning the day the girl was reported missing.

Her parents say Nora Anne was born with holoprosencephaly - a malformation that means she has a smaller brain and as a result learning and physical disabilities, so it's more plausible she was abducted. We wish her family, who must be devastated, much love. "There is also no evidence that anyone has sighted Nora Anne anywhere", he said. We know you're searching night and day for Nora.

In a video broadcast on local media, she said: "We want to say thank you to each and every one of you". In order to help their investigation, we have chose to offer a reward: 50,000R has been donated by an anonymous Belfast-based business for any information that directly helps us to find Nora.

She went missing from the 12-acre (five-hectare) Dusun Resort, which lies near a forest reserve not far from Kuala Lumpur, in the foothills of a mountain range.

Ms Quoirin praised the dedication and expertise shown by those looking for Nora.

"We are so grateful for everything you have done for us, as well as to everyone here and those who are helping away from the site", she said.

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

With her husband Sebastien by her side, she ended by saying "terima kasih" - which means thank you in the Malay language.

Nora's parents are an Irish-French couple who have lived in London for about 20 years, according to the Lucie Blackman Trust, a British charity that supports people involved in crises overseas.
