15-year-old Nora Quoirin has been missing in Malaysia for over a week, sparking an international outcry for her return.
Local authorities have not ruled out foul play and her distraught family have now offered up a £10,000 reward for information leading to her safety.
In a statement, Nora’s family pleaded: “Nora is our first child. She has been vulnerable since the day she was born.
“She is so precious to us and our hearts are breaking. We are appealing to anyone who has information about Nora to help us find her.
“The police have been working extremely hard to bring Nora home.
“In order to help their investigation, we have decided to offer a reward: 50,000 ringgit has been donated by an anonymous Belfast-based business for any information that directly helps us to find Nora.
“If you have any information at all, please call the police hotline here on 01112285058 or email [email protected] from outside Malaysia.”
A spokesman for the Irish-French family said: “I’m delighted to see support deployed.”
Malaysia’s equivalent to the FBI – Bukit Aman – are checking records of known criminalds in the area, including paedophiles.
Detectives also quizzed the taxi driver who took them from the airport to the resort, and are searching the home of staff working at the holiday destination.
Police chief Mohammed Bin Mat Yusof said: “We are very worried about Nora’s welfare and do not know how long she can survive.”
Nora’s parents Meabh and Sebastian Quoirin issued a plea before the start of the weekend, thanking volunteers for their help.
Speaking in front of Malaysian media, Mebah said: “We see you’re working so hard and are also praying with us and being with us. We want to say thank you to each and every one of you.
“It means the world to us and we are so grateful for everything that you are doing for us.
“Everyone here, and everyone who is helping who is not here, we are extremely impressed with the effort, your expertise, your dedication.”
