Nora Quoirin: More than £100,000 raised for missing teen

The family of missing Irish teenager, Nora Quoirin, is offering a reward of over ten thousand euro for information on her whereabouts.

Her family said on Monday (Aug 12) that 15-year-old Nora is the eldest child who has been vulnerable since the day she was born.

Nora Anne Quoirin, 15 and with learning disabilities, was reported missing on August 4 after her family arrived at the Dusun resort in Seremban, about 70 km (44 miles) south of Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur.

"The police teams (from England, France and Ireland) are only assisting us in the investigation into Nora Anne's disappearance and are not involved in the search-and-rescue operation", SAC Che Zakaria told a press conference at the Pantai police station in Seremban on Monday.

Announcing the reward, Nora's family said their daughter is "so precious to us" and said their "hearts are breaking".

Yesterday morning, a total of 348 personnel were deployed in the search operation, the largest team so far, according to Malaysia's "Malay Mail" newspaper.

Police earlier released a video showing a shaman wearing a white skullcap and several of his assistants performing rituals in the forest.

Malaysian Police have been treating Nora's disappearance as a missing person case, however, her family believes she was abducted from her hotel room as she slept.

Ravens deal kicker Kaare Vedvik to Vikings for draft pick
On Wednesday, during the Vikings' final practice before their preseason opener in New Orleans, Bailey went 3-for-6 on field goals. We've been having some issues with the snap-hold-kick kind of thing. "The holding we're working on quite a bit, but I like Dan".

The 15-year-old was born with holoprosencephaly, a disorder which affects brain development, meaning that her communication is limited and she struggles with co-ordination.

The statement praised the police for "working extremely hard" to bring Nora Anne home, and that the reward is being offered to help their investigation. The search effort has slowly been expanding as the days Nora has been missing slowly turn into weeks.

She and her family, who arrived in Malaysia from London on Aug 3 for a two-week holiday, checked into eco-resort The Dusun in the dense tropical forest in Negeri Sembilan.

Thanking locals for their help in search efforts, Ms Quoirin said: "You have given up your time especially at a special festival time", referring to Hari Raya Haji, the Islamic "festival of sacrifice" celebrations.

Police believe the teen climbed out through an open window in the living room of the family's cottage and was still in the vicinity of the resort.

She said: "We want to say thank you to each and every one of you".

The National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Met Police have joined Irish police in providing support to authorities in Malaysia.
