  • Missing Irish teen: Police dismiss kidnap claim

The family arrived for a two-week holiday at the Dusun private resort around 60km from Kuala Lumpur on Saturday.

The search for Nora Anne Quoirin, 15, which entered the third day today was continued, focusing on hilly terrain and rivers.

Following Nora's disappearance, she said some guests had cancelled their bookings and that the resort had provided full refunds.

Her father raised the alarm at 08:00 local time on Sunday after she was discovered missing with the window in her bedroom open.

The parents of Nora, who has learning and developmental disabilities, are an Irish-French couple who have lived in London for about 20 years, according to the Lucie Blackman Trust, a British charity support people during a crisis overseas.

However, the family believe Nora, who has special needs, would not have wandered off alone and consider it a "criminal matter".

The family has set up a fundraising page online, writing: "Nora's parents and relatives in Ireland and France are distraught by her disappearance". Police have said there were no initial signs of foul play.

"We also believe that the victim is still somewhere in the area hence why our assets such as General Operations Force, helicopter, Fire and Rescue, Civil Defence Force and People's Volunteer Corps (Rela) are focused here", he told a media conference, here yesterday.

Mr Morrison says while it is important to make the shipping lanes safer than they are, it was also vital to de-escalate tensions. China hit back at what it called these "groundless attacks and slanders" in a statement from its embassy in Canberra.

Che Zakaria Bin Othman, the deputy police chief for Negeri Sembilan, the state the girl's family was visiting, said: "So far, there's no indication of foul play; however, the investigation is still ongoing".

The Dusun resort, where the family were staying, is in a remote area 800 feet above sea level in the Titiwangsa mountain range.

The girl's family said they were treating the disappearance as a "criminal matter".

'Nora would not know how to get help and would never leave her family voluntarily.

Family friend Brendan Doherty from Derry, confirmed that Sebastien, who is French and his wife and Nora's mother, Meabh, from Belfast, have links to the City. "We are appealing to everyone to assist the local police in any way they can and to pass on any information that would help locate our beloved Nora without delay".

The appeal was started by Nora's aunt Aisling Agnew, who said that more family members are planning to travel to Malaysia to assist in the search for the missing teenager.

The Department of Foreign Affairs is aware of the case and is providing consular assistance.

"More family members are travelling to Malaysia to participate in the search and rescue effort and would appreciate donations to cover any unforeseen expenses or charges incurred in the process", she said.
