Body of Franco-Irish teen found in Malaysia jungle

SEREMBAN: The naked body of a vulnerable Franco-Irish teen who disappeared from a Malaysian resort was found in a jungle ravine Tuesday after a 10-day search involving a hundreds-strong team. A helicopter winched the body out of the rainforest and transported it to hospital, and the parents of missing 15-year-old Nora Quoirin later identified her. She disappeared from the Dusun Resort, not far from Kuala Lumpur, on August 4, a day after checking in for a holiday with her London-based family. Her family believed the teen, who had learning difficulties, had been abducted but police classified it as a missing person case. More than 350 people were deployed to hunt through dense jungle, backed by helicopters, drones, sniffer dogs and divers, while traditional shamans conducted rituals in a bid to locate her. The body was found in a small stream in a ravine about 2.5 kilometres (1.5 miles) from the resort, Malaysia s deputy national police chief Mazlan Mansor told a press conference. He said the body was unclothed but declined to reveal if it had any injuries. Mazlan said it was still being treated as a missing person case. The family has confirmed it is the body of Nora, Mohamad Mat Yusop, police chief of Negeri Sembilan state, later told AFP.
