Nora Quoirin lured away by genie claims mystic

Nora Quoirin lured away by genie claims mystic

Now her family are offering a £10,000 reward for any information which may lead to Nora's return.

More than 300 search and rescue personnel have been involved in the hunt for 15-year-old Nora, who was travelling on an Irish passport when she disappeared from a Malaysian jungle resort on Sunday, August 4.

Her family offered a 50,000 ringgit ($11,900) reward, donated by a Belfast business, for information that could lead to her return, said The Lucie Blackman Trust, a charity that supports the families of British people missing overseas. They said she isn't independent, has difficulty walking and has never wandered off on her own or become lost despite having been to other Asian and European countries before. "We are appealing to anyone who has information about Nora to help us to find her".

State fire and rescue department assistant director Ahmad Mukhlis Mokhtar told journalists: "Previously, our detective canines had spotted footprints, but when we conducted a search there, we couldn't find her".

Ms Quoirin and her husband Sebastien, a French-Irish couple who have lived in London for 20 years, said "terima kasih", or "thank you" in Malay, to those searching for their daughter.

The family are hopeful that the reward may be of help in the desperate search for Nora.

She noted that the police had been working hard to bring the 15-year-old girl home.

The Associated Press reported that a Malaysian shaman has joined in the search, adding that police released a video showing a shaman with a white skullcap performing rituals in the forest.

Meabh Jaseprine also urged the public with any information on her daughter to call the police hotline at 0111-2285058 or email [email protected] from outside Malaysia. The search effort has slowly been expanding as the days Nora has been missing slowly turn into weeks.

Gardaí and members of the National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Metropolitan Police are supporting the Malaysian police with the case.

"The National Crime Agency, the Met Police and the Irish police are working together to help and support the Malaysian authorities relating to Nora Quoirin's disappearance", a spokeswoman for the NCA said.

"Nora can read like a young child, but she cannot write more than a few words".

Nora Anne and her family arrived at the Negeri Sembilan resort on Aug 3 for a two-week holiday.

An open window was found in the cottage where the family was staying at the resort.

The teenager has learning disabilities, her family added.
