We are so grateful for everything you are doing, everyone who is helping'.

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

Praising the efforts of police carrying out the search, they said they had chose to offer the reward "to help their investigation".

The reward of 50,000 Malaysian ringgit - approximately €10,806 - was donated by an anonymous Belfast business, Nora's family said.

The Associated Press reported that a Malaysian shaman has joined in the search, adding that police released a video showing a shaman wearing a white skullcap performing rituals in the forest.

The 15-year-old vanished more than a week ago after arriving at a remote eco-resort with her family for a two-week holiday.

Speaking to the team outside the resort, the girl's mother Meabh Quoirin said: "We want to say thank you to each and every one of you, we know you are searching night and day for Nora".

Her Irish-Franco parents, who believe she was abducted, said Saturday that their daughter was born with holoprosencephaly, a malformation that causes her to have a smaller brain and led to learning and physical disabilities.

The club have been given an additional boost after club captain Luka Milivojevic signed a new four-year contract. It was a good outcome for us. "I am sure he will bring his straw to the water to help us have a good season".

Fears over the safety of Nora Quoirin grew on Sunday night after it emerged she was barefoot at the time of her disappearance in the Malaysian jungle.

"The police have been working extremely hard to bring Nora home". We are appealing to anyone who has information about Nora to help us find her.

"You have given up your time especially at a special festival time", she said, referring to Hari Raya Haji, the Islamic "festival of sacrifice" celebrations. "She is not independent and does not go anywhere alone", they said.

Nora's parents are an Irish-French couple who have lived in London for about 20 years, according to the Lucie Blackman Trust, a British charity that supports people involved in crises overseas.

THE SEARCH for missing teenager Nóra Quoirin is continuing following the discovery of footprints in the area near where she disappeared.

Nora was born with a disorder that means she struggles with everyday tasks.

Gardai last night sent a liaison officer to Kuala Lumpur to assist the Department of Foreign Affairs and to liaise with Malaysian police and United Kingdom and French authorities to assist in the search for Nora.
