SEREMBAN: The body of a “female Caucasian” has been found by rescuers searching for Nora Anne Quoirin, the Irish teen who went missing from a resort here on Aug 4.
However, police have yet to confirm whether this was the body of the 15-year-old special needs teenager.
Negri Sembilan police chief Datuk Mohamad Mat Yusop said the body was found at 1.57pm about 2km from the resort.
“My deputy (Senior Assistant Commissioner Che Zakaria Othman) and forensics unit policemen went in at 2.05pm and reached the site at 2.30pm,” he told reporters.
However, that was all the information Mohamad could provide at the moment.
This is the 10th day of the search for Quoirin, the eldest of three children.
The family had arrived in Negri Sembilan for a two-week holiday in Malaysia and checked in at the resort the day before she went missing.
On Aug 4, the family discovered Quoirin missing, a large window in one of the room left open.
