Killarney relatives appeal for support to find missing girl
The Killarney-based relatives of a girl who is missing in Kuala Lumper, have asked the local community to help support efforts to find her.
Nóra Quoirin, the daughter of an Irish-French couple based in London, has been missing since last Sunday morning.
The 15-year-old who has special needs, disappeared while on holiday with her family at a resort in a nature reserve near Seremban, 63km south of Kuala Lumper.
Her mother Meabh, originally from Belfast, is understood to have been travelling on an Irish passport
Meabh’s cousin Piaras Kelly is well-known in Kerry. He and his wife Catherine run Kerry Climbing, offering escorted tours of Carrauntoohil, and the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks. He is also a volunteer with Kerry Mountain Rescue.
“Her parents and our families in Ireland and France are distraught by her disappearance,’ read a family statement this week.
“Nóra is a child with special needs and has learning and developmental disabilities which make her especially vulnerable and we fear for her safety.
“Nóra would not know how to get help and would never leave her family voluntarily. Local police now consider this a criminal matter and are treating it as an abduction.”
The family has a GoFundMe page to help the search effort and donations can be made via www.gofundme.com:Find Nora Quoirin.
