Kuala Lumpur - The body of Nora Anne Quoirin, the Irish-French teen whose disappearance from a Malaysian resort on August 4 prompted a nationwide search, was found on Tuesday.
Quoirin, who lives in London, was reported missing from her hotel room by her family ten days ago at Dusun Resort in the south-western state of Negeri Sembilan, about 80 kilometres from the capital Kuala Lumpur.
"The family has been brought here to identify the body that was found earlier today, and the family has confirmed that the body is Nora Anne," Negeri Sembilan police chief Mohamad Mat Yusop told reporters outside the forensics department of Seremban hospital.
The body was found in a hilly area in a ravine about 2.5 kilometres from the resort in the early afternoon and subsequently taken to Seremban hospital by helicopter.
Mohamed said Quoirin was "not in any clothing" when her body was discovered by a member of the search and rescue team.
