£100,000 donated to search for Nora Quoirin

More than £100,000 has been donated to help the family of missing teenager Nora Quoirin as the search for the 15-year-old continues.

More than 300 search and rescue personnel have been involved in the hunt for Nora, who disappeared from a Malaysian jungle resort on Sunday August 4.

The teenager's aunt set up an online fundraising page in the aftermath of her disappearance, which has so far collected more than £89,000.

A second campaign created by Nora's uncle to collect money in euros now totals more than 14,000 euros (£13,000).

On Monday morning, a total of 348 personnel were deployed in the search operation, the largest team so far, according to Malaysia's Malay Mail newspaper.

Malaysian police set up a new hotline over the weekend, while voluntary hikers also joined the search for Nora, who was born with the brain defect holoprosencephaly and has special needs.

Her parents, Meabh and Sebastien Quoirin, a French-Irish couple who have lived in London for 20 years, thanked those involved in looking for her.
