Malaysian rescuers on Tuesday found the naked body of a Caucasian female believed to be that of a 15-year-old London girl who was reported missing more than a week ago, police said.
National deputy police chief Mazlan Mansor said the body was found beside a small stream about 2.5 kilometers (1.6 miles) from the Dusun eco-resort in southern Negeri Sembilan state where Nora Anne Quoirin went missing on Aug. 4.
"We have sent our forensic team to the scene and confirmed there is a body there ... it resembles Nora but that is yet to be confirmed by the family," Mazlan said at a news conference. "We have reasonable belief that it must be her."
