Police in Malaysia said they were concerned about the survival of an Irish teenager who went missing on holiday as search efforts continued into their eighth day on Sunday.

In a statement police said they had narrowed the search area believing the girl could not have gone far, adding the search was focused on steep areas, shrubs and rocks as well as around the family’s holiday accommodation.

Search and rescue efforts involving more than 300 searchers thus far have not led to any clues, the police added.

Nora Anne Quoirin, a 15-year-old who has learning disabilities, was reported missing last Sunday, a day after her family had arrived at the Dusun resort in Seremban, about 70 km south of Malaysia’s capital of Kuala Lumpur.
