Police also confirmed they were looking into people with criminal backgrounds around the area and had searched the homes of hotel staff. Police are anxious how long she can survive in the warm and humid environment, with unsafe animals.

Not only are helicopters from the Royal Malaysia Police Air Wing Unit and drones are utilised, Very Able Troopers 69 (VAT 69), an elite multi-tasking special forces unit of PDRM, is also joining the efforts to search for Nora.

Officials narrowed the search area over the weekend as they believe that the teen can not have strayed far from the resort, and have also been playing a recording of her mother's voice through megaphones.

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

Currently, the SAR team is focused at the area around the resort which is located in the foothills of the Titiwangsa mountains, next to a forest reserve.

In an appeal on the GoFundMe.com, the family said Nora's disabilities made her especially vulnerable and they fear for her safety.

The Quoirins said Nora's condition means she is not independent and has difficulty walking.

Then Stills revealed that the death threats he received at the height of the kneeling controversy in 2017 have returned. He anticipates both sides will speak in the near future. "I told him that".

Nora's parents, Meabh and Sebastien Quoirin, appeared on camera on Saturday to thank searchers and beg them not to give up. A source said that authorities could keep the search going for 40 days, given that it concerns a visitor to the country.

In a short speech, Ms Quoirin held back tears, as her husband stood beside her. We are appealing to anyone who has information about Nora to help us find her.

She said: 'We know you're searching night and day for Nora.

Throughout the day, recorded messages by Nora's mother, Meabh, have been played over loudspeakers, saying: "Nora darling, Nora I love you, Mum is here".

Rescuers conduct a search and rescue operation for a missing British girl at a forest in Seremban, Malaysia.

Mohamad Mat Yusop, chief of Negeri Sembilan state police where the resort is, yesterday said: 'We have never had a missing case like this before'.

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".
