Nora Quoirin disappearance: Malaysian spiritual healer assisting with search

A Malaysian shaman has joined police in the search for a mentally disabled, 15 -year-old British girl, who disappeared more than a week ago.

Last Sunday, Nora Quoirin disappeared from her room in a nature resort south of Kuala Lumpur, hile on a holiday with her family. 

Several sources reported a shaman, also known as a spiritual healer, is now assisting with the search.

Hundreds of people are searching for the teen, including officers from Scotland Yard, Ireland,  France and Interpol.

A Belfast company has put up an $18,000 dollar reward for information to help find her.

Authorities are concerned about how long the teenager can survive and believed she could not have gone far from the resort.

In a statement released through British charity the Lucie Blackman Trust - which helps families in need overseas - the family says Quoirin isn't very independent and has difficulty walking.

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

"All her life she has spent a lot of time in hospital. When she was born, she needed operations to help her [breathe]. She has specialists that monitor her growth, her physical abilities and her strength, and especially her mental capacity," a statement from the Lucie Blackman Trust said.
