Family Confirms Body Found In Malaysia Is Missing 15-Year-Old London Girl
Malaysian police said Tuesday the family of a missing 15-year-old London girl has positively identified a naked body found near the nature resort where she disappeared over a week ago.
A body believed to be a missing 5-year-old Utah girl was found Wednesday less than a block from her home, bringing a wide-ranging search to a grim close five days after the child was taken from her home and killed by her uncle, police said. The family of British teenager Nora Quoirin, whose body has been found in Malaysia, have said their "hearts are broken".
Nora, who had special needs, was found just over a mile away from the Dusun resort on Tuesday.
The 15-year-old Londoner had been on holiday with her family when she disappeared from her room on 4 August.
In a statement, her family thanked the 350 people who had been hunting for Nora in dense jungle near the resort.
They added: "Nora has brought people together, especially from France, Ireland, Britain and Malaysia, united in their love and support for her and her family.
"She has truly touched the whole world. Remains believed to be those of missing three-year-old Kamille "Cupcake" McKinney have been found, and two suspects in her death are in police custody, Birmingham Police Chief Patrick Smith confirmed at press conference Tuesday night. A missing 6-year-old boy in Minnesota was found alive thanks to a drone during a 10-hour search by more than 600 volunteers. The disappearance of Ethan Haus had many in Sherburne County looking for the child after he got off the school bus with his siblings and ran off to play with the family dog earlier in the week. That was the last time anyone saw him. As temperatures dropped to near freezing, the search intensified. A local photographer, Steve Fines, had the idea to use his drone to help.
