Here's What We Know So Far About Nora Quoirin's Disappearance In Malaysia


The disappearance of 15-year-old Irish teen Nora Quoirin in Negeri Sembilan, is being regarded as a missing persons case.

Here's the sequence of events that led to the disappearance. 

Nora arrived at a tropical rainforest resort in Seremban, with her parents and 2 siblings on Saturday morning (3rd August), for what was supposed to be a 2 week holiday. 

On Sunday morning (4th August), her parents woke to find her missing, with the window of her room left open. 

A missing persons report was lodged, prompting an investigation. 

A massive search is currently underway to find Nora, with the police working with fire and rescue officials, Orang Asli, the forest department, and sniffer dogs to locate the missing girl. 

So far, the area surrounding the resort has been combed by the team, and the search area has since been expanded. 

Enforcement officers are guarding the resort area closely, while a General Operations Force platoon has been roped in to beef up the large-scale operation. 

The Dusun, where the family were staying, is said to be a remote reserve, a 12-acre orchard resort next to the Berembun Forest Reserve.

Nora's aunt in Belfast says the missing teen is a special needs child with learning difficulties, making her especially vulnerable. 

She also told the BBC that Nora would never leave her family voluntarily.

Another family friend also believes Nora's disappearance is completely out of character.

The Irish embassy in Kuala Lumpur says it is providing consular assistance to the girl's family.

The teenager's family has also set up an email address for info leading to her safe return:

Meanwhile, UK-based crisis support group The Lucie Blackman Trust, has urged those with info to call  +448000988485 or email

hereHopefully Nora will be found and reunited with her family soon!
