Nora Quoirin found dead: British teenager's heartbroken family identify body found near waterfall

Nora Quoirin's parents have identified her body after it was found naked near a waterfall in the Malaysian jungle, police confirmed today.

The discovery was made by a volunteer hiker on the tenth day of an intensive search of the area surrounding the eco-resort where she was on holiday. 

Her body was found near a waterfall around a mile away from the villa where the family were staying when the 15-year-old vanished. 

Nora had told her family she was 'excited' to visit a waterfall when she arrived at the resort, a volunteer searcher told MailOnline.

The body was found in an area that had previously been searched, said Malaysia's Deputy Inspector General of Police Mazn Mazlan.

State Police chief Mohammed Yusop said earlier: 'I can confirm a body has been found in the Berembun mountains. It is not in an accessible place'.

The body was winched out of the jungle by a helicopter and flown to Serenbam hospital. It was found near Gunung Berembun in the Pantai Hills.

Nora's parents, Frenchman Sebastien, 47, and Irish woman Meabh, 45, faced the harrowing ordeal of identifying their daughter's body in the mortuary.

The body was found intact after forensics and a pathologist rushed to the scene when the hotline was alerted at around 2pm local time, police confirmed. 

An autopsy will be carried out to determine the cause of death. Police would not comment if the teenager had any visible injuries.
