Nora Quoirin, a UK teenager who went missing in Malaysia, died from intestinal damage likely from prolonged hunger and stress, police have confirmed to Sky News.

A post mortem revealed no evidence of rape or kidnapping.

The 15-year-old's body was found on Tuesday night (NZ time).

She had disappeared from her room in a resort south of Kuala Lumpur the previous Sunday.

The teen was on holiday with her parents, an Irish-French couple, and younger siblings, when she went missing. 

Quoirin was born with holoprosencephaly, which means she has a smaller brain leading to learning and physical disabilities.

Her disappearance attracted attention in part due to its similarity with the case of Madeleine McCann, who disappeared from a hotel room in Portugal in 2007 while on holiday with her family.
