Reading Time: 2 minutes

Police in Malaysia are treating the disappearance of a “very vulnerable” 15-year-old London girl as an abduction and a missing person case, a charity has said.

Nora Quoirin, who has learning difficulties, went missing while on a family holiday in the southeast Asian country.

Nora, whose mother Meabh is originally from Belfast and whose father is French, is understood to have been travelling on an Irish passport.

The family have been living in London for around 20 years.

She vanished at the weekend in a resort near Seremban, around 40 miles south of the capital Kuala Lumpur.
