Malaysian police on Tuesday (Aug 13) found the body of an Irish teenager who went missing on Aug 4 from a rainforest resort in Negeri Sembilan where she was holidaying with her family.
Negri Sembilan police chief Mohamad Mat Yusop told reporters that the parents had positively identified the remains of their daughter at the Tuanku Jaafar Hospital mortuary in Seremban.
The naked body of 15-year-old Nora Anne Quoirin was found at 1.57pm in a hilly area of the jungle in Seremban, just 2km away from the Dusun eco-resort where the family was staying, Deputy Inspector-General of Police Mazlan Mansor told a news conference earlier.
The body was flown by helicopter to the hospital where the family identified it.
The Lucie Blackman Trust, a foundation supporting families of British citizens who are missing or killed abroad, said it “can confirm with great sadness that the body found today is that of missing teenager Nora Quoirin. Local police have confirmed identification”.
Earlier, a search-and-rescue team found human remains near Mount Berembun in Pantai Hills. Police had said that the body was that of a white female.
