Body found in search for missing Nora Quoirin in Malaysia

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

No official statement has been issued by police as of yet, with United Kingdom charity Lucie Blackman Trust saying they are still waiting for clarification. "Investigations are under way to confirm identity and cause of death", the charity said.

The search for 15-year-old Nóra has been ongoing for ten days.

The state police chief added that a forensic examination would be carried out to determine if the body was male or female. "Please be patient. We will let you know as soon as it's confirmed".

Franco-Irish teen Nora Anne Quoirin has been missing from the Dusun Resort in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan, since Aug 4.

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".

National Malaysian newspaper the Malay Mail has reported that a body had been found in the search for Nóra.


A statement released on Tuesday said: "Nora's family believe she has been abducted".

The teenager who has some learning disabilities had arrived with her family in Malaysia on Aug 3 for a two-week vacation.

Quoirin's parents were brought to the site of the discovery at 4.17pm.

A number of vehicles, including forensics vans, have been seen heading onto the area where the body was found.

Nora's father Sebastien Marie Philipe is French and her mother Maebh Jaseprine Quoirin, Irish.

The report claims that the body was discovered on the tenth day of SAR operations (13th August).

Meabh Quoirin made an emotional appeal for help in finding her daughter.
