On Monday, five shamans offered to help in the search for the missing Irish teenager. The search team, however, brought cadaver dogs with them.
The five men performed a ritual in the forest with the group’s representative Mohd Khalid Mohamed saying that it was an alternative way to locate the missing teen.
Malaysian bomoh’s also ‘helped’ in the search for the missing aeroplane MH370.
Their presence at the airport went viral across the world as the global media had a rare insight into how the Shamans operate in the country.
Some 300 people are now part of the research team but the police may reduce the search area. The authorities of Britain, Ireland and France also joined the search team. The teen is still missing.
The search teams have drones and helicopters with thermal imaging but could not find the girl. News reports say they went through the jungle playing a recording of the mother.
Nora Quoirin’s family have said they believe the teen who has special needs, is a victim of abduction but Malaysian officials said there’s no evidence of abduction. Nevertheless, the police have not ruled out any possibilities including kidnapping.
Police believe she wandered off from the cottage. A window was open when they found the teen was missing.
More than £100,000 has been donated to help Nora’s mum Meabh and dad Sebastien.
The parents were urged to consider offering a cash reward.
