Police in Malaysia said on Monday, August 5th, they intensified efforts to find a missing girl, identified as a 15-year-old Irish girl who lost contact with her parents in Kuala Lumpur, Reuters has reported.

The girl, Nora Anne Quoirin, was found to be missing from her room on Sunday after the family’s Saturday arrival at the Dusun Pantai Hill resort, according to a statement by Malaysian police.

"We're working with all departments of police and the fire service to locate the teenager," a police spokesman said, adding the girl had a learning disability.

The Irish embassy in Kuala Lumpur said it was providing consular assistance to Quoirin's family.
