At around 1.57pm today (Aug 13), Astro Awani reported that Negeri Sembilan Police Chief, Datuk Mohamad Mat Yusop said the Search and Rescue team had found a body about 2km from the resort where Nora Anne was reported to have gone missing.

The body was then sent to Tuanku Jaafar Hospital to be identified and for a post mortem.

Nora’s parents, Sebastien and Maebh, have positively identified the body to be their 15-year-old daughter.

Nora was reportedly found “unclothed”, in a hilly area with a ravine and had to be “winched” out and transported via helicopter to the hospital.

Nora Anne Quoirin went missing from her room in the resort early Sunday morning (Aug 4). The only clue to her disappearance was the opened bedroom window.

Her family lodged a missing persons report with the police and a search and rescue team was immediately dispatched to look for her.

Her family, policemen, firemen, battalion units, the K9 Unit, the Sarawak Forest deparment, the Orang Asal in the area, bomohs, hikers and media personnel all came out to look for the missing special needs Irish girl at Gunung Berembun, Seremban.
