Hotline set up as search for Nora enters second week in Malyasia

A Malaysian shaman joined police from Ireland, France and the United Kingdom on Monday in the search for a 15 -year-old London girl who mysteriously vanished from a nature resort eight days ago, as her parents offered a cash reward and appealed for information.

Around 90 rescue workers involved in the search for missing Irish teenager Nora Quoirin will today focus their efforts on the surrounding jungle and mountain area near the Dusan resort, where she was last seen.

The search for the 15 year old is into its 9th day with 353 people involved in the operation.

The teenager's family announced that the reward of 50,000 Malaysian ringgit had been donated by an anonymous Belfast-based business.

On Monday morning, a total of 348 personnel were deployed in the search operation, the largest team so far, according to Malaysia's Malay Mail newspaper.

A video broadcast shows the parents saying terima kasih adding they want to thank the search team and the police for searching night and day for Nora.

Malaysian Police have been treating Nora's disappearance as a missing person case, however, her family believes she was abducted from her hotel room as she slept. "She is so precious to us and our hearts are breaking", the mother said in a recorded statement.

She noted that the police had been working hard to bring the 15-year-old girl home.

Trump told reporters, "Hollywood is racist, what they're doing, with the kind of movies they're putting out. What Hollywood is doing is an incredible disservice to our nation".

"In order to help with their investigation, we have made a decision to offer a reward". The search effort has slowly been expanding as the days Nora has been missing slowly turn into weeks.

"You have given up your time especially at a special festival time", said Ms Quoirin, referring to Hari Raya Haji, the Islamic "festival of sacrifice" celebrations.

"If you have any information at all, please call the police hotline here on 01112285058 or email [email protected] from outside Malaysia".

The Irish-French family who have been living in London for 20 years, arrived in the Dusun forest eco-resort in southern Negeri Sembilan state a week ago.

"There is also no evidence that anyone has sighted Nora Anne anywhere", Mr Yusop said.

Police from France, Ireland and the United Kingdom are providing Malaysian police with support in their quest to locate Nora.

The window was also open in the room that Nora had been sharing with her two siblings.

Several police officers from England, France and Ireland are also helping Malaysian police in the investigation into Nora's disappearance, Malaysia's national news agency Bernama reported on Monday (Aug 12).
