'No Positive Leads' In Search For Nóra Quoirin

There have been "no positive leads" in the ongoing search in Malaysia for missing Irish teenager, Nóra Quoirin.

The 15-year-old has been missing since last Sunday. She was discovered missing from her bedroom at a holiday resort in the south of Kuala Lumpur.

Hundreds of people, including tribes people specialised in tracking, have been searching rainforest surrounding the resort, where she was staying with her family.

According to reports, recordings of Nóra's mother Meabh have been played during the search, in the hope that a familiar voice might draw the teenager out if she is hiding in the jungle.

It is understood that local police believe Nóra is still in the jungle surrounding the resort.
