Malaysian police said yesterday the family of a missing 15-year-old London girl has positively identified a naked body found near the nature resort where she disappeared over a week ago.
A body has been found in the search for missing British teenager Nora Quoirin, who went missing from her hotel room at a jungle resort in Malaysia.
Almost 350 personnel were involved in the search and rescue efforts, and on Wednesday, her family thanked all parties who helped in the search but described the manner in which the teenager was taken away from them as "most cruel".
The following day, missing persons charity The Lucie Blackman Trust said the Malaysian police were treating Nora's disappearance as a potential abduction, but officers on the ground denied any foul play.
Right up until 2.30pm local time yesterday, Nora's mother Meabh (45), who is from Belfast, and her French father Sebastien (47) clung to an enduring hope that they would be reunited with their daughter.
Mansor said that the body was found about a mile and a half from the eco-resort by a waterfall, a man had telephoned the authorities to say he discovered the body.
After Nora went missing, her family described how she was particularly vulnerable. "She is the truest, most precious girl and we love her infinitely", they said.
While she had been listed as a missing person, investigations included possible criminal aspects of the case.
They offered a €10,000 reward - donated by an anonymous business in Belfast - on Monday for any information leading to their daughter's safe return. LBT asked for the family to be given privacy at this time.
The schoolgirl's grandfather, Sylvain Quoirin, who is a mayor in France, had previously said it was "unthinkable" Nora would have wandered off alone because of the severity of her learning difficulties.
Mrs Quoirin could be heard saying "Nora, darling, Nora, I love you, Mum is here", on the recording.
She has a condition called "holoprosencephaly", which means she has a smaller-than-normal brain, and has limited verbal communication and can not write more than a few words.
Lawyer Sankara N. Nair, who has been engaged to represent them, said it was too early to make a decision now. However, her parents believe she was abducted.
Her body was found unclothed by a group of hikers who had joined the tenth day of a widespread search operation across the perilous terrain. With her family, she is very affectionate - family is her whole world.
"She is not like other teenagers".
Her relatives said the schoolgirl was "at the heart of our family", in a statement released by The Lucie Blackman Trust, a United Kingdom charity that supports relatives of British people missing overseas.
The search involved more than 300 personnel including from the National Crime Agency (NCA), the Metropolitan Police and the Malaysian police.
Following the removal, the man returned for a check-up six weeks later, where they found no problems from the denture-ordeal. He complained of blood in the mouth, difficulty swallowing, and pain so intense that he couldn't eat solid food.
