Footprints found in search for missing Nora Quoirin

Footprints found in search for missing Nora Quoirin”

During the fifth day of searching on Thursday, dogs from the K9 Unit of the Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department picked up the footprints in a densely-forested search area spanning 6km around the resort.

WESTLIFE has joined the appeal to extend the search for missing Irish girl Nora Quoirin, asking Malaysian fans to come forward with any information that could help find the schoolgirl.

Part of the SAR operations also included having the victim's photograph distributed at roadblocks, and listing her details in the National Urgent Response Alert (NUR Alert) system, he said, adding that police was also cooperating with Interpol on the case.

They have questioned about 20 people and are examining fingerprints found on a window pane.

Several footprints have reportedly been found in a dense jungle, believed to belong to a London schoolgirl who has been missing for five days.

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

He told reporters: "Previously, our detective canines had spotted footprints, but when we conducted a search there, we couldn't find her".

Speaking on Thursday, Nora's grandfather Sylvain Quoirin, who is closely following the case from his home in France, told of how the family is torn between "anguish and hope" as the search continues.

The 15-year-old disappeared from a jungle resort on Sunday. He said the aluminum window that was found open could possibly have been opened from the outside if it wasn't locked.

Throughout the day, recorded messages by Nora's mother, Meabh, have been played over loudspeakers, saying: "Nora darling, Nora I love you, Mum is here".

Her father raised the alarm the following morning when Nora was missing from her bedroom with the window open.

Nora was staying in the holiday cottage with her parents, mum Meabh and dad Sebastien, and her two siblings.

More than 260 people are involved in the search operation that also includes aerial searches, drones, sniffer dogs and indigenous trackers.

The family 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".
