The mother of the missing girl has made a heartfelt appeal to find the teenager as over €10,000 in reward was offered for information leading to her safe return.

In a statement, they said: 'Nora is our first child.

The 15-year-old was born with holoprosencephaly, a disorder which affects brain development, meaning that her communication is limited and she struggles with co-ordination.

"She is here now, so we will stay here tonight to see if we can find her then we can know why she went missing", said shaman Mohd Khalid Mohamed.

The 50,000 ringgit ($11,953) reward announced on Monday was donated by an anonymous Belfast-based business, according to a statement issued through the Lucie Blackman Trust, which is working with the family.

Nora and her mother and father, who are Irish and french respectively, arrived in Malaysia from the United Kingdom - where they have been living for 20 years - on Saturday, August 3.

Her aunt set up an online fundraising page in the aftermath of her disappearance, which has so far collected more than €97,000.

Quoirin's family, which has lived in London for 20 years, arrived August 3 for a two-week stay at the Dusun, a small resort located in a durian orchard next to a forest reserve 63 kilometers (39 miles) south of Kuala Lumpur.

The flight cancelations left many visitors stranded in the airport, surrounded by scores of protesters. Police stormed a number of underground train stations, firing tear gas and arresting protesters.

A fingerprint found on a window at the hotel room where the family was at the time Nora went missing is the focus of the local forensic team.

While officially treating it as a missing person case, police say they have not ruled out other possibilities.

Ms Quoirin added: "The police have been working extremely hard to bring Nora home".

The schoolgirl went missing from the 12-acre (five-hectare) Dusun Resort not far from Kuala Lumpur, which is near a forest reserve and in the foothills of a mountain range.

Police in Malaysia have set up a hotline in the hope of getting some new information regarding her disappearance.

Some 300 people continued the search despite heavy rain Sunday morning, sacrificing time with their family amid a Muslim religious festival, he said.

But a member of the search team said: "As of yet the dogs have not found anything and that is a good sign". "Most important now, the child will be released", he said in the video.

Malaysian police are now analysing unidentified fingerprints on the window of Nora's room, and on Friday 9 August, footprints were found in the jungle close to where the teenager vanished.
