The parents of a vulnerable teenager missing in Malaysian forest have offered a reward as part of their desperate search to find their daughter.

The family of Nora Anne Quoirin, who has learning and physical disabilities, discovered her missing from the Dusun eco-resort in southern Negeri Sembilan state on August 4, in a case that has baffled police and turned up no evidence so far.

Appearing before cameras on Monday, a visibly emotional Ms Quoirin said: "Nora is our first child".

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.

He said he believes the spirit - which can take on human or animal form - was attracted to the 15-year-old because she has special needs.

The money, 50,000 in Malaysian ringgit currency, was donated by a Belfast-based business who wished to remain anonymous.

A spokeswoman for the NCA said: "The National Crime Agency, the Met Police and the Irish police are working together to help and support the Malaysian authorities relating to Nora Quoirin's disappearance". "We are appealing to anyone, anyone who has any information to find Nora".

There are now 350 people searching for the teenager in the forest where it's believed she is missing.

"The police have been working extremely hard to bring Nora home".

The Irish-French family who have been living in London for 20 years, arrived in the Dusun forest eco-resort in southern Negeri Sembilan state a week ago.

"If you have any information at all, please call the police hotline here on 01112285058 or email ops@lbtrust.org from outside Malaysia".

"Nora can read like a young child, but she cannot write more than a few words".

Nora's parents discovered her missing from her bed with the room windows wide open on the morning of August 4, after the family had arrived in the southeast Asian nation for the "holiday of a lifetime".

"We are continuing our search in the area over a 6km radius", SAC Che Zakaria said, adding that the search-and-rescue team is faced with various challenges, including the bad weather over the past three days.

"We are committed to finding her", he told reporters.

Police are treating it as a missing persons case but Nora's family believe she may have been abducted.

Police have been distributing missing person signs in surrounding villages and questioning locals to determine if anyone may have sighted Nora.
