'But we all knew she was dead.

'It was very sad and two women in the group did not want to come close and they started crying.'

'I think maybe she was elsewhere and walked to the stream perhaps to drink some water.

'The place where she was found is not easy to find. I wonder if she had been following the stream as there were no footprints which means she could have been walking in the water as it was not very deep.'

Mr Nair added that the girl's relatives are 'highly traumatised following the loss of their child. They are in a state of shock'.

Family seeks more answers to London teen's death in Malaysia

Family seeks more answers to London teen's death in Malaysia SEREMBAN, Malaysia (AP) — The family of a 15-year-old London teen who was found dead nine days after she disappeared from a Malaysian forest resort said Friday they will bring her body home and hope to find answers to their many questions about her death. Police have ruled out foul play, saying the autopsy showed that Nóra Anne Quoirin died of intestinal bleeding due to starvation and stress. Police said there was no evidence that she was abducted or raped. Her naked body was found Tuesday beside a small stream about 2.5 kilometers (1.6 miles) from the Dusun eco-resort after she went missing Aug. 4 from her family's resort cottage.

Five days later, she was in bed when she suddenly got stabbing pains in her chest, shoulders and back. During this time, one of Diana’ s consultants confirmed that sitting at a desk all day could have been a factor in her illness. ‘ She told me the first cases of DVT were diagnosed after the war, caused

Father George Harrison, who held the service at the Church of Visitation, said he prayed with the pair and gave them a blessing.

Speaking to the Mirror, Father Harrison said the pair were 'calm and staying strong' and that an additional prayer will be said for Nora this Sunday after her body was found. Father Harrison may also bless Nora's body.

The family had been staying at the Dusun resort which is popular with local tourists and located in an area known as the Pantai hills.

The resort offers guided tours to the Lata Berembun waterfall, involving a 20-minute trek to the jungle entrance and a further one-hour walk along a defined jungle trail.

The deputy chief of Malaysia's police force Mazlan Mansor had earlier said that officers have so far found no evidence of criminal behaviour.

But he refused to confirm whether Nora had suffered any injuries or if anybody else may have been involved in her death.

He described Nora as 'completely naked' but 'intact' when she was found, adding it was too soon to determine how long her body had been at the scene.

Nora's parents, who have lived in London for 20 years, had previously expressed fears that the schoolgirl had been abducted and had put up a £10,000 reward for information. Mrs Quoirin, 45, held back tears during a statement in which she said the family's 'hearts are breaking' without her.

'Nora is our first child. She has been vulnerable since the day she was born,' she said.

The teenager had a smaller than average brain and struggled to act independently having been born with Patau's syndrome, or holoprosencephaly.

The condition left her struggling to complete everyday tasks and with limited speech, walking ability and co-ordination.

During the search operation, rescuers had also played Mrs Quoirin's voice through loudspeakers in the hope her daughter would hear, saying: 'Nora, darling, Nora, I love you, Mummy is here.'

Mr and Mrs Quoirin, a data analysis firm salesman and market research company director, met in Northern Ireland and the family live in Streatham, south London.

The search for Nora had involved up to 350 staff from various government bodies over a period of ten days, alongside helicopters and drones equipped with thermal imagining technology.

British, Irish and French police had been dispatched to Malaysia to join the search. Scotland Yard said it was ready to deploy remote support.

The Dusun resort, located around 39 miles south of Kuala Lumpur, is nestled in the foothills of the Titiwangsa Mountains and borders the Berembun Forest Reserve.

The jungle is home to an array of harmful animals, including snakes, biting insects, tigers and wild boar.
