Body found in hunt for missing Nora Quoirin in Malaysian jungle

A poster showing missing 15-year-old Franco Irish girl Nora Anne Quoirin is seen in Seremban

It added that an investigation was underway to confirm whether the body is the 15-year-old, who disappeared from a remote resort in Malaysia more than a week ago while on holiday with her family. However it sadly seems likely.

The statement asks that the privacy of the family and friends be respected.

The 50,000 ringgit (€10,800) reward announced on Monday was donated by an anonymous Belfast-based business, according to a statement issued through the Lucie Blackman Trust, which is working with the family.

"She is so precious to us and our hearts are breaking".

And a shaman drafted in by police to help with the search claimed missing Nora had been lured away from the eco-resort in Malaysia by a "genie".

A spokesman for the Lucie Blackman Trust, which is handling media enquiries for the family, confirmed the development.

August 5: A British charity said that Malaysian police were treating Nora's disappearance as a potential abduction, but officers denied there was any foul play involved.

August 9: Police investigated whether footprints found in the forest where Nora went missing belonged to the missing teen.

Yesterday, Nora's family offered a €10,800 reward for information leading to her rescue.

"Body still intact", he said.

Some 300 Malaysian searchers aided by drones and sniffer dogs are scouring the forest area near the resort, playing recordings of Nora's mother calling out to her. She has a good memory but she can not understand anything conceptual. "We are appealing to anyone who has information about Nora to help us find her".
