He said in order to locate meet the girl as soon as possible, the operations today was also assisted by local people including the Orang Asli people who volunteered to help locating Quoirin.
“There are many other parties who are willing to cooperate with us,” he said.

Quoirin arrived at the resort with her parents from London on Saturday for a two-week vacation, before she was reported missing on Sunday at 8am.
