Seremban, Malaysia: A mother, Meabh Quoirin, whose daughter has gone missing form a resort in Malaysia has frantically sent out an SOS voice recording to her daughter who is believed to be lost in a jungle.

Rescuers, who are going all out to locate the girl, played out the message from her mother: “Nora darling, Nora, Nora, Mummy’s here”.

The mother’s poignant call for her daughter pierced through the jungle as rescuers used loudspeakers to spread the message.

It’s believed by the police that the girl, who is in her teens, using a window in the living room of the resort, is still nearby. The search for her has been taken up on a full-scale and the police also suspect the element of criminality in the girl going missing.

What gives fillip to such a thought is that the girl, her family adds, has disabilities related to learning and developments and it would not be a viable option for her to have wandered off on volition, and that she has certainly been abducted.

More than 260 people are involved in the search operation that also includes aerial searches, drones, sniffer dogs and indigenous trackers. Investigators have questioned 20 people and said a forensic team was analysing fingerprints found in the cottage where the girl went missing.

A police officer who is overseeing the rescue operations said: “Investigators didn’t find any footprints of the girl. The aluminium window that was found open could possibly have been opened from the outside if it wasn’t locked.”

Nora’s parents are an Irish-French couple who have been staying in London for well over 20 years.

Nora and her family arrived in Malaysia for a two-week vacation in a forested area, located 63 kilometres, south of Kuala Lumpur.

The couple have also started a crowdfunding venture to enable other relatives to join search operations.
