The family of Nora Quoirin have identified her body after it was found in a rainforest in Malaysia today.
The 15-year-old Irish schoolgirl was missing for 10 days after disappearing from a holiday resort where she was staying with her family.
A search volunteer found Nora’s body in an area of the jungle 2km away from the resort.
Nora’s parents Sebastien and Meabh Quoirin were taken to identify the remains. A statement was later released by a support charity on behalf of the family, saying: “The Lucie Blackman Trust can confirm with great sadness that the body found today is that of missing teenager Nora Quoirin. Local police have confirmed identification.”
A post-mortem examination will be carried out tomorrow.
