The parents of Nora Quoirin, the missing Irish girl in Malaysia, said ‘terima kasih’ (thank you) on Saturday to those searching for her.
They were addressing the search team and the police in particular as the girl has now missing for a week.
After initially dismissing abduction and foul play as the reason, the police finally said last week it is also probing abduction.
Malaysian cops are stepping up their hunt for the missing girl. Hundreds have joined in the hunt for Nora Quoirin, seven days after the 15-year-old mysteriously disappeared from a Malaysian holiday resort.
A rescue mission team of 300 is doing everything possible to locate the vulnerable teenager. Here’s the latest.
A fingerprint found on a window at the hotel room where the family was at the time Nora went missing is the focus of the local forensic team.
The mother Meabh Quoirin, in a short speech, held back tears as her husband Sebastien stood beside her, rubbing her arm.
A video broadcast shows the parents saying terima kasih adding they want to thank the search team and the police for searching night and day for Nora.
“We want to say thank you to each and every one of you. We know you’re searching night and day for Nora.
“We see you working so hard and also praying with us and being with us,” she says.
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.
They say Nora, who was born with brain disorder holoprosencephaly needs help with many aspects of everyday life.
‘Nora darling, mummy’s here’ says the mother in another recoding used by the police in their search. -/TISG
