Body found during search for Irish teen Nora Anne

The Lucie Blackman Trust said a body has been found in the search for Franco-Irish teen Nora Anne Quoirin.

The statement said: "The Lucie Blackman Trust can confirm a body has been found in the search for Nora Quoirin. Investigations are under way to confirm identity and cause of death", the charity said.

15-year-old Nóra disappeared on Sunday August 4th from the Dusun Holiday Resort near Kuala Lumpur, where she was staying with her parents.

However, speaking to press on Monday afternoon, Che Zakaria Bin Othman, deputy police chief of Negeri Sembilan, said: "So far there's no indication of foul play, however investigations are still ongoing".

A body has been found in the search for teenager Nora Quoirin who went missing in the Malaysian jungle.

And a shaman drafted in by police to help with the search claimed missing Nora had been lured away from the eco-resort in Malaysia by a "genie".

The teenager who has some learning disabilities had arrived with her family in Malaysia on Aug 3 for a two-week vacation.

The teenagers became suspects and the manhunt ended last week when the RCMP found McLeod and Schmegelsky dead in the Gillam scrub. Their bodies were found by Manitoba authorities 8km from where their burnt out getaway auto was discovered 16 days prior.

Nora, who had special needs, was reported missing on August 4 after her father discovered she had gone and a downstairs window was wide open.

"She is so precious to us and our hearts are breaking".

"Body still intact", he said.

State police chief DCP Datuk Mohamad Mat Yusop is scheduled to hold the daily press conference at 5pm local time today.

Some 300 Malaysian searchers aided by drones and sniffer dogs are scouring the forest area near the resort, playing recordings of Nora's mother calling out to her.

Meabh Quoirin made an emotional appeal for help in finding her daughter.
