Nora Quoirin has been missing since August 4

She was on a family holiday and disappeared from a Malaysian eco-resort on August 4. I'd like to pay tribute to everyone who searched for Nora.

"Nora would not know how to get help and would never leave her family voluntarily", the teen's aunt wrote, noting the girl's learning disabilities.

They suspected she was abducted but Malaysian police classified it as a missing person case. Was the body dumped there afterwards?'

She disappeared from her room at the Dusun resort the next morning at 8 a.m. and her naked body was found in a stream almost 2 miles from the hotel.

The newspaper said human remains had been found near Gunung Berembun in the Pantai Hills.

According to the New Straits Times, a police forensics unit vehicle was spotted entering the cordoned-off resort at 3.30pm. Her body was found on 13 August, 10 days after she vanished.

The window was also open in the room that Nora had been sharing with her two siblings.

They were later supported at the resort by relatives who had flown in from Singapore, London and Glasgow.

Nora was reported missing after her dad discovered she was not in her bedroom around 8am.

Sniffer dogs lost her scent around 100 yards from the two-storey holiday cottage.

Before Tuesday's discovery, the parents of Nora - Sebastian, 47 and Meabh, 45 - made a heartfelt appeal and offered a £10,000 reward for any information that would lead to her safe return.

The teenager's body was transported to hospital by helicopter, where her parents Meabh and Sebastien Quoirin, a French-Irish couple who have lived in London for 20 years, headed to identify it. She had been airlifted there after being winched out of the jungle.

Mr Yusof said: "The post-mortem process will start tomorrow morning and we will apply so that a senior pathologist from Kuala Lumpur will be here to conduct the process tomorrow".

The state police chief added that a forensic examination would be carried out to determine if the body was male or female.

"The AG would then decide if there is a need for an inquest".

Her body was found in the Betembum mountains by members of the Seremban hikers club, who had joined police, residents and members of the indigenous Orang Asli people in the search and rescue operation.

The deputy chief of Malaysia's police force Mazlan Mansor had earlier said that officers have so far found no evidence of criminal behaviour.

In a statement, France's Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs said French police remain "at the disposal of the Malaysian authorities so that light can be shed on the circumstances of her death".

Writing in an emotional statement, her family thanked those who had helped in the search for the missing schoolgirl.

'Nora is our first child.

Nora was born with brain defect holoprosencephaly, and her mother says she has been "vulnerable since the day she was born".

The condition left her struggling to complete everyday tasks and with limited speech, walking ability and co-ordination.

She has a condition called "holoprosencephaly", which means she has a smaller-than-normal brain, and has limited verbal communication and can not write more than a few words. As the search intensified, more details emerged about the family.
