A body found in the hunt for missing 15-year-old Nora Quoirin, is "likely" to be her, the trust acting for her family has said.
The Lucie Blackman Trust, which is handling media enquiries for the family, says that it can not confirm that it is Nóra but that it is likely.
He found no trace of the 15-year-old though he did notice that the window to her hotel room had been opened.
15-year-old Nóra, who has learning and developmental disabilities, was reported missing on 4 August.
The state police chief added that a forensic examination would be carried out to determine if the body was male or female.More news: Apple is shutting down features on iPhones with unauthorized batteries and repairs
"At this time we can not confirm it is Nora".
A body has been found in the search for teenager Nora Quoirin who went missing in the Malaysian jungle.
Authorities have been treating Nora's disappearance as a missing persons case, but her family have said they believe she may have been abducted.
The BBC is reporting the body was found just over a mile from the Dusun resort, has white skin and is female.
Appearing before cameras on Monday, a visibly emotional Ms Quoirin said: "Nora is our first child".More news: Emotional Hong Kong Leader Urges Calm Amid Protests, Airport Reopens
She has an Irish passport and hasn't been seen since Sunday.
"(We are) quite familiar with all the routes and trails, so we try to help as much as possible to find the girl", said hiker Sherley Yap.
Yesterday, Nora's family offered a €10,800 reward for information leading to her rescue.
Some 300 Malaysian searchers aided by drones and sniffer dogs are scouring the forest area near the resort, playing recordings of Nora's mother calling out to her.More news: Tesla Model 3 Explodes After Moscow Motorway Crash
