Clarification sought after reports of body found in search for Nora Quoirin”

The body is "likely" to be that of 15-year-old Nora Quoirin, the Lucie Blackman Trust has said.

A spokesman for the Lucie Blackman Trust which is handling media enquiries for Nora's family said he is aware of the reports and is urgently seeking clarification. "Investigations are underway to confirm identity and cause of death", it said in a statement.

The 15-year-old, who has learning difficulties, disappeared from her hotel room at the Dusan resort in Malaysia after going to bed there on Saturday, August 3.

The state police chief added that a forensic examination would be carried out to determine if the body was male or female. "We are appealing to anyone who has information about Nora to help us find her".

Nora and her family checked into The Dusun resort in Seremban last Saturday (3rd August). "At this harrowing time all of our thoughts and prayers are with the family", he said.

A search-and-rescue team looking for Irish girl Nora Anne Quoirin, who has been missing from a resort since Aug 4, found human remains near Mount Berembun in Pantai Hills near Seremban.

"We are especially anxious because Nora has learning and developmental disabilities, and is not like other 15-year-olds".

Quoirin's parents were brought to the site of the discovery at 4.17pm. "She is so precious to us and our hearts are breaking", they said.

Her mother and father, Meabh and Sebastien Quoirin, said: "To be with us here, it means the world to us".

Since her disappearance, the authorities have mounted a large-scale search and rescue operation, but were unable to locate any trace of the missing teen until a body was found today.
