National Malaysian newspaper the Malay Mail has reported that a body had been found in the search for Nóra.

Almost 350 people are involved in a massive search operation that includes sniffer dogs, elite commando forces and thermal detectors, but no evidence had turned up until the discovery of the body on Tuesday.

A spokesman for the Lucie Blackman Trust, which is handling media enquiries for the family, confirmed the development. "It is not in an accessible place".

Her parents Meabh and Sebastien were seen being driven into an area sealed off by police.

It comes after the parents of the missing teen offered a £10,000 reward for information that could lead to her safe return.

A body found in Malaysia is "likely" to be that of 15-year-old Nora Quoirin, who has been missing for over a week, the Lucie Blackman Trust said.

The discovery was made as the search entered its 10th day in the jungle surrounding the eco-resort in Dusun, where the 15-year-old was staying with her family. Investigations are under way to confirm identity and cause of death.
