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

In a statement released this morning, the Lucie Blackman Trust, which is handling media enquiries for Nora's family - said it is "likely" to be that of the 15-year-old who has been missing since August 4.

A tweet from Lucie Blackman Trust, the UK-based charity organisation that has been providing support to Nora's family during SAR efforts here, also acknowledged reports of a body being found, but explained they are now seeking clarification. "Investigations are underway to confirm identity and cause of death", it said in a statement on Tuesday.

Fears grew for the 15-year-old, who has special needs, after it emerged she was barefoot and wearing a night dress when she disappeared in the early hours of August 4. "The forensics team has been summoned to identify the body", Negeri Sembilan Police chief Datuk Mohamad Mat Yusof told reporters here.

A body has been found in the search for teenager Nora Quoirin who went missing in the Malaysian jungle. Please respect the family and do not approach them at this hard time.

She has an Irish passport and hasn't been seen since Sunday.

It comes after the parents of missing teen Nora offered a £10,000 reward for information that could lead to her safe return.
