Meabh and Sebastian Quoirin, whose 15-year-old daughter Nora has been missing since last Sunday, said "terima kasih", or "thank you" in Malay, to those searching for her. Rescue teams have searched round-the-clock amid fears she has been abducted or wandered off and got lost.

A recording of Nóra's mother Meabh is being played over speakers through the jungle in an attempt to draw Nóra out in case she is afraid and in hiding.

The family have said they remain hopeful after police leading the investigation refused to rule out a "criminal element".

The message calls out: "Nora darling, I love you".

"We can see you are working so hard as well as praying with us and being with us. You have given up your time".

A hunt for a Franco-Irish teen who disappeared from a Malaysian resort stretched into a second week Sunday, with hundreds of people scouring the jungle despite it being a major Muslim holiday.

"To be with us here, it means the world to us".

"We are so grateful for everything you have done for us, as well as to everyone here and those who are helping away from the site", she said.


"We are extremely impressed by the effort, your expertise, your dedication and we hope you find Nora. She is so precious to us and our hearts are breaking", they said.

Nora arrived with her family on Saturday for a two-week stay at the small resort located in a durian orchard next to a forest reserve some 40 miles south of Kuala Lumpur.

Nora was discovered missing from her room the following morning with her bedroom window open.

The reward of 50,000 Malaysian ringgit - approximately €10,806 - was donated by an anonymous Belfast business, Nora's family said.

"All her life she has spent a lot of time in hospital". She has been vulnerable since the day she was born. She has specialists that monitor her growth, her physical abilities and her strength, and especially her mental capacity.

THE SEARCH for missing teenager Nóra Quoirin is continuing following the discovery of footprints in the area near where she disappeared. "She is not independent and does not go anywhere alone".

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.

Westlife, who performed in the country this week, asked their fans to help look for the missing teenager, the Malaysian Star publication reported. Posters of the girl have also been circulated in the district. "If you know anything about Nora's disappearance, come forward", he said.
