Report A Body Was Found During Search For Nora Quoirin Identity Not Yet Determined- WORLD OF BUZZ 1

Fifteen-year-old Nora Anne Quoirin, who had suffered learning difficulties, was reported missing on August 4 after her family arrived at the Dusun rainforest resort in Seremban, about 70km south of Kuala Lumpur.

After Nora went missing, her family described how she was particularly vulnerable.

Malaysian authorities Wednesday conducted a post-mortem examination on the body of a Franco-Irish teen found in the jungle after she disappeared from a resort, as her family mourned the "unbearable" loss.

National deputy police chief Mazlan Mansor told reporters at a press conference that a body which "resembles Nora" had been found beside a small stream about 2.5 kilometres (1.6 miles) from the resort.

On the 9th day of SAR operations (12th August), Nora's family previously announced they were offering a RM50,000 reward to anyone with information that could help with investigations in hopes that their daughter would be found soon.

Tuesday's discovery came the day after Nora's mother, Meabh Quoirin, made an emotional appeal for help - and an anonymous Belfast-based business offered a reward of nearly $12,000.

The Daily Mirror reports that the location of Nora's body "raised questions" about why she had not been spotted before.

More than 200 officers had joined the search for Nora by August 7 and her grandfather Sylvain Quoirin, mayor of Venizy in north-central France, said it was "unthinkable" that she had wandered off alone.

Almost 350 people were involved in the massive search operation that included sniffer dogs, elite commando forces and thermal detectors.

" Taylor Swift specifically requested my presence backstage and I will never shut up about it", Khurram's Instagram bio reads. I have no words and i can't stop crying. i don't have words i don't have words i don't have words i can't stop crying".

Local police have been searching for the missing girl for ten days and now and they have been using a helicopter and sniffer dogs to aid with their search.

Her cause of death has not yet been confirmed. Police from Ireland, France and the United Kingdom are also on site to assist in the investigation. "She is the truest, most precious girl and we love her infinitely", they said.

And at the weekend, her mother Meabh fought back tears as she made an emotional speech thanking the search team, with the girl's French father Sebastien by her side.

Areas of jungle near the resort were cordoned off by police as they searched for Nora. Mrs Quoirin, 45, held back tears during a statement in which she said the family's "hearts are breaking" without her.

He added that while it remains a missing persons case police are looking into all possibilities including the "angle of criminal investigation".

Police have said they are not discounting foul play.

The teenager's devastated family faced an agonising wait last night to find out whether her death had resulted from an accident or a crime.

Malaysian sharmans and police from Britain, Irish and French were among those drafted in to assist.
