Malaysian police searching for missing London teenager

Malaysian rescuers looking for missing London teenager Nora Anne Quoirin have today played tear-jerking recordings of her mother’s voice on loudspeakers as the search enters its fifth day.

The 15-year-old’s mother Meabh has recorded a message saying ‘Nora darling, Nora I love you, Mum is here’, according to Malaysian media, which is being broadcast into the jungle today.

Forest trackers are also calling out Nora’s name as they comb the dense forest for any sign of the 15-year-old who vanished from her holiday resort on Sunday.

Hundreds of people have been searching through the night, Interpol is now involved and a helicopter and drones have been deployed but no trace of her has yet been found.

Police are also examining unknown fingerprints which were found at the Malaysian jungle cottage where she disappeared, adding to the family’s fears that she was abducted.

Today authorities revealed pictures of an open window on the ground floor of the cottage, saying they were sure that Nora had left through it.

Malaysian police say they believe the girl is still in the area of jungle where the search is focused.

Today the search team used the recording of the girl’s mother calling her name in the hope that a familiar voice might draw out the timid youngster if she is in the jungle.

District police chief Nor Marzukee Besar said rescuers are using recordings of her mother’s voice ‘as if the family is calling her’ and playing them over loudspeakers.

‘We still believe this missing person is still within our search vicinity,’ he told reporters.

Her family say it would be extremely unusual for the reserved youngster to have wandered off on her own. While officially treating it as a missing person case, police say they have not ruled out any other possibilities.

‘We would like to use voice recordings of her mother and use loudspeakers to call her out, whether it’s Anne or Nora or whichever name the missing person is familiar with, or even use her siblings’ voices,’ the police chief said.

‘This is another method that we will try,’ he told a news conference, adding it has been used before in other cases.

Voices of other family members had also been recorded and would be used, police said.

Members of the Senoi Praq, a special police team made up of indigenous tribes with forest tracking skills, are searching the forest surrounding the Dusun eco-resort.

Investigators have questioned 20 people so far and said a forensic team was analysing the fingerprints found in the cottage.

A window in the living hall downstairs was apparently left open, although not the one in the bedroom where the girl was sleeping with her two siblings.

Malaysian police have today released pictures of the living room and window, saying that the opening was big enough for a person to squeeze through.

‘Only the glass window exit was used. We are certain about this, a police officer told Malaysian media today, citing the work of a forensic police team.

The fingerprints were found at the open window downstairs, while her parents were in another room upstairs when she disappeared.

Police have received the laboratory results of fingerprint samples taken from the accommodation.

Investigations are still ongoing to work out who the prints belong to and whether they could be those of an outsider or criminal.

It remains unclear whether it was possible to open the window from outside the property. Those running the 12-acre resort previously said this could have been the case.

The 15-year-old, who is from a French-Irish family and has learning and developmental disabilities, arrived for a two-week stay with her family on Saturday.

A helicopter with thermal imaging equipment is being deployed in the search, joining the 267 people already involved in the hunt for Nora.

Divers have also been sent to search rivers, on the theory that she could head downhill to try and find water.

Two drones and sniffer dogs have also been deployed in the huge search operation, while rescuers were also seen praying for the girl’s safety.

Police are treating her as a missing person and initially said there was no sign of foul play, but do not rule out a possible criminal element in her disappearance.

Malaysian authorities are also said to be in contact with Interpol as they probe the mystery disappearance, and pictures of her have been distributed to police elsewhere in Malaysia.

The Dusun is a small resort located next to a forest reserve about 40 miles south of Kuala Lumpur.

The resort’s management said in a Facebook post that its employees were ‘extremely distressed and worried’ about her disappearance and were assisting in the search.

The teenager’s family said yesterday they were ‘overwhelmed’ by the support they had received and remained ‘hopeful’ their daughter could be found.

‘This is extremely traumatic for the whole family. Meabh and Sebastien are devastated and too upset to speak themselves at this time,’ Nora’s aunt Eadaoin Agnew said, referring to the girl’s parents.

‘But we must remain hopeful. And we ask everyone to keep Nora in their thoughts, and to continue to support the ongoing search for her,’ she said.

‘Nora is still missing, and she is very vulnerable, and we need to do everything we can to bring her home.’

Her grandfather Sylvain Quoirin that she had gone in ‘extremely mysterious’ circumstances and was not in the habit of running off.

‘In the morning, the window was open and she had disappeared,’ Quoirin said from Venisy, in north-central France where he is the mayor.

‘After an 18-hour flight and a seven-hour time difference you would sleep soundly and not go for a stroll at night,’ he said.

Nora’s family has appealed for donations to assist the search and more than £60,000 has been raised so far, as well as a further €4,000 (£3,700) in a separate French collection.
