This article, British teen goes missing from Malaysian resort while on family holiday, originally appeared on Coconuts, Asia's leading alternative media company.
Nora is described as having learning difficulties, and was on a family trip in the area, about one hour outside of Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur, when she disappeared at the picturesque Dusun Resort.
Nora is the daughter of an Irish-French couple who have lived in London for about 20 years.
Her parents raised the alarm when they discovered she was not in her room on Sunday morning and the window was open.

Nora went missing while on a holiday with her family.
Local authorities are scouring the area with sniffer dogs for the teen, who has learning difficulties.
The teenager has just arrived in the resort on Saturday.
Che Zakaria Bin Othman, the deputy police chief for Negeri Sembilan, the state the girl's family was visiting, said "So far, there's no indication of foul play; however, the investigation is still ongoing".
"Urgent. Please help and share", Nora's aunt Aisling Agnew wrote on Twitter.

More than 40 activists appeared in court on Wednesday, charged with rioting after protests last Sunday turned violent. They also blocked a tunnel and surrounded police stations where non-emergency services were suspended.
Citing information that it said came from Nora's family, it stated on its Facebook page that "Contrary to several reports that police are NOT treating Nora's disappearance as an abduction, the family have been told directly by police that they are treating it as both an abduction and missing persons case".
"I'm a mother, and I burst into tears just hearing this story". I can not imagine the hell that they are living right now.
"All officials are still up there at the hotel, we discussed with them all, and God willing, we will continue the search until it is successful", he said.
Nora's family has been living in the United Kingdom for almost 20 years, however, it's believed the teenager was travelling on an Irish Passport.
She added: "To my knowledge the French government and the Irish government are helping them and it would be great if other agencies or governments worldwide could support them".
