There is a sort just check the 1 thru 5 I looked at 1 thru 4.
I believe it was her aunt speaking.
Thanks I had not seen this. I would think the owner rather than a staff member formally speaking with the press would be more appropriate.
Well that turned out to be a bit of a damp squib! The reporter said the parents didn't feel able to speak. They showed a brief appeal clip of the aunt speaking and another male and female unidentified with her. There was a brief phone conversation with the grandfather in France, speaking French, with audio translation. He said his granddaughter was "very shy, very reserved, very fearful".
The reporter also stated on the intro that it was the window in her (Nora) room that was found open.
Yeah a bit odd especially some of the reports and those signs. It’s not the most welcoming and slightly threatening vibe..,
The aunt of missing teenager Nora Quoirin has made an emotional appeal for help in locating her niece.
Éadaoin Agnew asked people to keep the 15-year-old, who disappeared in Malaysia on Sunday, in their thoughts.
Fighting back tears at one point, she said Nora's disappearance had been "extremely traumatic for the whole family".
"Nora is still missing. She is very vulnerable and we need to do everything we can to bring her home," she said.
Malaysian police said they had "not ruled anything out" as to the reason for Nora's disappearance.

One of the weird things about this case to me has been the disconnect between the family and everyone. Let me lead this by saying I don’t believe that the family is involved with the disappearance. My main logic being how the hell could a tourist from London make a girl disappear in the forest in Malaysia without getting lost themselves in such a good hiding spot even locals can’t find it. Maybe it’s possible but it seems crazy to me. Furthermore I’d guess if the family was involved in foul play they’d stop demanding to look for foul play.
That being said I don’t understand the behavior. It seems family usually buddy up with the cops who suggest to not talk to the media so they don’t hinder the case, or they cozy up with media because they dont agree with the police work or just to keep their kids name in the news. Neither of these things are happening though. They disagree with the cops but won’t tell the media explicitly why. Basically we are left knowing almost nothing for sure. The only thing we can all agree on is she went missing on August 4th and no ones seen her since. Everything else about Nóra from which house or room she was staying in, what she was wearing, her mental abilities...it’s all speculation
You are vocalising what I've been thinking.
After reading more about the resort and how remote it is, if she didn't wander off, it would definitely have to be someone familiar with the place, and possibly that she was an easy target.
How did they arrive, taxi? Car rental? Sorry if its been mentioned.
Mohamad said it was too early for police to conclude that the 15-year-old had been abducted or kidnapped.
“A search of the girl’s room at the resort did not turn up any evidence of a criminal element in her disappearance. The victim’s sister noticed that one of the windows in the room was opened on the morning she went missing, and believes Nora had gone out the window herself.
She had been there since the previous day, so her smell would be within a 100 metre perimeter anyway, wouldn’t it? Depending on which direction it was in and whether they’d walked that way already, I guess.
Thank you. I wonder where they got that from. Did the journalist interview the child? I wouldn’t have thought so.
I wonder if the whole “sibling implies she went out the window thing” is where the disconnect began and why they aren’t allowed to speak to the police or media. Maybe they took an 8 year olds suggestion and made it a key element in their case.
(EDIT: Later commenters are informing me that the sister is the elder 12 year old who would have said that. Still it could have been an offhand comment not even under official questioning that was taken out of context and used against them. I think even a 12 year old would rather believe their sister left willingly)
It was a quote from the police chief that the media reported.
The grandfather clarified this as did police. The window was downstairs in a hallway.
From reading some two star reviews I agree there are plenty of eye openers, if of course they are true.
That doesn't alter the fact of what police reported the sister said she believed Nora did. They all know where the open window was when they spoke to police. It's reported it was the sister who found the open window.
I take this with a grain,of salt. The kid was 12, scared to death. If ask, what happened that's the only response that makes sense to an 12 year old.
Its bizarre police would base the investigation on a statement from an 12 yo. that was asleep.
The sister is 12. It's the brother who is 8.
