Nora's family had said they believe the teen, who was born with the brain defect holoprosencephaly, was abducted from their cottage at the resort they were staying at, about an hour south of Kuala Lumpur.

But Malaysian officials have said there was "no proof" she was kidnapped, though they were not ruling out any possibilities.

Appearing before cameras on Monday, a visibly emotional Ms Quoirin said: "Nora is our first child.

"She has been vulnerable since the day she was born.

"She is so precious to us and our hearts are breaking."
