British girl, goes missing on family holiday as police use sniffer dogs for search

A BRIT teenage girl has gone missing in Malaysia, a family friend claims.

Police are using sniffer dogs in the search for Nora Quoirin, 15, who reportedly disappeared while on holiday at a resort near Seremban, around an hour south of Kuala Lumpur.

According to reports, Nora, who has learning difficulties, was not in her room when her parents checked this morning.

They also discovered that the window was open, it’s claimed.

The BBC reported that Malaysian police are using sniffer dogs in their search.

Nora, whose mother Meabh is originally from Belfast and whose father is French, is understood to have been travelling on an Irish passport.

The family are believed to have been living in London for several years.

Family friend Catherine Cook told PA: “It’s out of character for Nora to go wandering off.

I’m a mother and I burst into tears just hearing this story. I cannot imagine the hell that they are living right now. I just ask for anyone who can help them to do so as soon as possible.

“To my knowledge the French government and the Irish government are helping them and it would be great if other agencies or governments worldwide could support them.”
