The search and rescue team will play the recorded voice of Nora’s mother to draw out the teenager with special needs after combing the jungle for the girl to no avail.
Last night, the family of Nora Quoirin thanked Malaysian police and all rescue team involved in the search operation the last four days.
Matthew Searle, the chief executive of the Lucie Blackman Trust, a charity which works with British nationals facing overseas crises said Nora’s family expressed their deepest gratitude to the Royal Malaysian Police, the search and rescue teams, and emergency services, for all they have done for them in this difficult time.
“We are completely overwhelmed by the support we have received from all over the world.
“We would like to thank our embassies, the local community, and the staff here at the hotel. And anyone else who has offered help to find Nora. We also welcome the assistance of the French, British and Irish police,” the family said in their statement last night.
The family asked everyone to keep Nora in their thoughts and to continue to support the ongoing search for her.
Meanwhile, Searle said: “This is extremely traumatic for the whole family. Her parents are devastated and too upset to speak themselves at this time.
“Nora Anne is still missing, and she is very vulnerable, and we need to do everything we can to bring her home,” he said.
Yesterday police confirmed that several sets of fingerprints were found on a window panel at The Dusun resort, from where Nora Anne was believed to have exited.
Negri Sembilan deputy police chief SAC Che Zakaria Othman said police have received the lab results of the fingerprint samples, but investigations are still ongoing to ascertain the identity of the individual they belong to.
Meanwhile, police are hoping that the voice of her mother will draw out the teenager with special needs.
The search and rescue team will play the recorded voice of Nora’s mother after combing the jungle for the girl to no avail.
Nilai district police chief Mohd Nor Marzukee Besar told the media it was the Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIGP) Mazlan Mansor’s idea.
“We were instructed by the DIGP to interview the parents and we are going to use the mother’s voice to reach out to her.
“We are going to record the mother’s voice calling out to Nora using words and names that the teenager recognises.
“We believe when she hears her mother’s voice she will be drawn to it,” said Marzukee.
He said the cops will ask the family to record their voices when they are ready.
“We can’t push them. We need to be sensitive too. We will ask the family and I am sure they will cooperate. We will use a loud hailer to call to her using the voice of her mother or her siblings.”
Meanwhile, Marzukee said the number of personnel looking for the girl had increased to 247.
The search and rescue team is led by the 3rd battalion of the Senoi Praaq elite team.
Also on the team are personnel from the Fire and Rescue Department, D9 serious crime unit, the K9 unit from the Negri Sembilan police headquarters and Rela.
Yesterday, 214 rescuers in rotating shifts took part in the search.
Marzukee said police believed Nora was still in the area and has not left Kampung Pantai in Seremban.
Reportedly, local folk said it was unlikely that the girl was abducted.
