The parents of a vulnerable teenager missing in Malaysian forest have offered a reward as part of their desperate search to find their daughter.

.

Meabh and Sebastien Quoirin have spoken publicly for the first time since their 15-year-old daughter Nora went missing from their apartment at the Dunsan resort Seremban, about 40 miles south of Kuala Lumpur.

Nora Anne Quoirin, 15 and with learning disabilities, was reported missing on August 4 after her family arrived at the Dusun resort in Seremban, about 70 km (44 miles) south of Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur.

Day Nine of the search-and-rescue mission today involved 353 personnel.

The anonymous Belfast business put up the reward after her family raised £100,000 online.

"She is here now, so we will stay here tonight to see if we can find her then we can know why she went missing", said shaman Mohd Khalid Mohamed.

The Associated Press reported that a Malaysian shaman has joined in the search, adding that police released a video showing a shaman with a white skullcap performing rituals in the forest.

August 6: Nora's family said they believed her to have been abducted.

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

Praising the efforts of police carrying out the search, they said they had made a decision to offer the reward "to help their investigation".

Police in Malaysia have opened a dedicated hotline for people to call with information regarding the disappearance of Nora Quoirin.

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.

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

The National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Metropolitan Police are supporting the Malaysian police with the case.

The family found her missing from her room at the resort the following morning.

"The National Crime Agency, the Met Police and the Irish police are working together to help and support the Malaysian authorities relating to Nora Quoirin's disappearance", confirmed a spokesperson from the National Crime Agency.

"We are committed to finding her", he told reporters. They said she was born with holoprosencephaly, a malformation that causes her to have a smaller brain and has led to learning and physical disabilities.
