Nora Anne Quoirin's family is offering a RM50,000 reward for anyone with information that may help find the special needs teenager who disappeared on Aug 4 from a resort while on holiday here.

He said police from Ireland, France and the United Kingdom arrived a few days ago to assist in the investigation but declined to give further details.

According to the Herald, an elite team of Garda hostage and kidnap specialists are also now on standby to join the search if evidence emerges that she was abducted.

Shamans conducted rituals in the Malaysian jungle Monday in the latest bid to find a missing London teenager, as her family offered a reward for information leading to the girl's return.

The Quoirins, an Irish-French family who have lived in London for the past 20 years, arrived at the Dusun eco-resort in the southern state of Negeri Sembilan last weekend.

In a video broadcast on local media, she added: "We want to say thank you to each and every one of you".

On Friday evening, An Garda Síochána deployed a Garda Liasion Officer to Kuala Lumpur to assist the Department of Foreign Affairs, who are now providing consular assistance to Nora's family.

"It means the world to us, and we are so grateful for everything that you are doing for us".

"We do not know how long she can survive", Negeri Sembilan police chief Mohamad Mat Yusop said.

The SAR operations today entered day nine and saw police beefing up the number of personnel involved in the operation to cover more ground.

The statement praised the police for "working extremely hard" to bring Nora Anne home, and that the reward is being offered to help their investigation.

The police have checked the background of people in the area for criminal records.

In the short speech, Ms Quoirin held back tears, as her husband stood beside her, rubbing her arm as she said Nora will "miss cuddles at bedtime".

An Irish Garda liaison officer has been deployed to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to assist with the case, as Nora was travelling on an Irish passport.

She was discovered missing by her father Sebastien the following morning at around 8am, with a large door-sized downstairs window panel wide open. "(We are) quite familiar with all the routes and trails, so we try to help as much as possible to find the girl", said hiker Sherley Yap.
