Police are searching dense Malaysian forests

Friday, August 9, 2019

A voice recording of the mother of a British girl missing in Malaysia has been played in dense forest near where she disappeared on Sunday.

A 200-strong search team are playing megaphone-amplified recordings of Nora Quoirin's close family members in an effort to find her.

One recording, of the 15-year-old's mother Meabh, says: "Nora darling, Nora I love you, Mum is here."

Nora, who has special needs, disappeared whilst holidaying at the Dusun forest eco-resort in southern Negeri Sembilan state on August 4.

Police chief Datuk Mohamad Mat Yusop said Nora was believed to have climbed out of her resort room window.

Nora Quoirin has been missing since Sunday

He told a Malaysian newspaper that the search teams were playing the girl's mother's voice first, as she is closest to Nora.

Her family has said they remain hopeful after police leading the investigation refused to rule out a "criminal element" to her disappearance.

The Irish-French family, which has lived in London for 20 years, issued a statement welcoming "the assistance of the French, British and Irish police".

"We are completely overwhelmed by the support we have received from all over the world," they said.

"And we ask everyone to keep Nora in their thoughts, and to continue to support the ongoing search for her.

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