Malaysian police have 'no positive leads' in Nóra Quoirin case

Malaysian police have said they have "no positive leads" in the Nóra Quoirin case.

The search for the missing 15-year-old is now entering its fifth day, as local authorities say they want to use a recording of Nóra's mother's voice to try and reach the teenager.

Police said at a press conference this morning that they hope that using a familiar voice will help with the search.

The 15-year-old's disappearance is still being classed as a missing persons case, however detectives have not ruled out a "criminal element."

Nóra's parents believe that she may have been abducted.

According to journalist Sumisha Naidu, police have no evidence to suggest that a struggle took place in the hotel.

Tweeting from today's press conference, she said that police are considering that Nóra may have gotten lost.

"We will keep looking for her," they said.

The family were on holiday at a resort near Seremban, about an hour south of Kuala Lumpur, when Nóra went missing last week.

The 15-year-old's parents, who are Irish and French, discovered that she was not in her room and that the window of her hotel room had been left open.

Nora has learning difficulties and is said to be "especially vulnerable."

Catherine Cook, a family friend, told PA: “It’s out of character for Nora to go wandering off.”

“I’m a mother and I burst into tears just hearing this story. I cannot imagine the hell that they are living right now," she added.

Sniffer dogs have not yet been able to detect anything of note.
