Six questions about: The disappearance of Irish teen Nora Anne Quoirin

Six questions about: The disappearance of Irish teen Nora Anne Quoirin”

After going missing a day after her arrival at the Dusun Pantai Hill resort near Seremban, the search for 15-year-old Irish teen Nora Anne Quoirin has seen a massive Search and Rescue (SAR) mobilisation comprising of 252 officers and personnel from various agencies.

Police in Malaysia said they were concerned about the survival of an Irish teenager who went missing on holiday as search efforts continued into their seventh day on Saturday.

On Friday evening, An Garda Síochána deployed a Garda Liasion Officer to Kuala Lumpur to assist the Department of Foreign Affairs, who are now providing consular assistance to Nora's family.

He added these houses were in the villages surrounding The Dusun resort, where 15-year-old Nora was last seen.

Nora was born with a disorder that means she struggles with everyday tasks.

A week has since passed after she was reported missing, with the case receiving media attention following an alert from the Lucie Blackman Trust, a charity which works with British nationals facing crises overseas. "There is also no evidence that anyone has sighted Nora Anne anywhere", he said.

An exhausted Mrs Quoirin, 45, held back tears as her husband rubbed her arm.

Search and Rescue workers said they had found no sign of the teenager or any leads as to where she could be.

"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.

Yesterday, the police said they were very anxious about her welfare and uncertain how much longer can she survive.

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.

Nora was born with a small brain caused by Patau's syndrome, limiting her speech, movement and coordination.

Nora's father, a data analysis salesman, met the deputy inspector general of Malaysia's police force yesterday, who offered his support. And she was extremely excited about the family holiday in Malaysia.
