"We are so grateful for everything you have done for us, as well as to everyone here and those who are helping away from the site", she said.

Negeri Sembilan police chief Mohamad Mat Yusop said Sunday that no missing person had ever been reported in the area in the past decade, except for hikers who lost their way in the jungle.

The family has said they remain hopeful, while police leading the investigation have refused to rule out a "criminal element".

Separately, The Lucie Blackman Trust, which helps families of those missing overseas, said that they have received over 1,500 contacts from people offering help and support as well as anonymous alleged intelligence that needs to be verified and passed on to the relevant authorities.

More than 260 people have taken part in the operation that has included aerial searches, thermal detectors, sniffer dogs, indigenous trackers and elite commando forces.

"All her life she has spent a lot of time in hospital". The youngster, who has a rare brain defect which affects her mental and physical abilities, vanished from The Dusun hotel, located next to the 4,000-acre Berembun rainforest.

They woke up the morning after arriving to find Nora gone and a downstairs window of their lodge open. She has been vulnerable since the day she was born.

"Nora would not know how to get help and would never leave her family voluntarily", the statement says.

"You have given up your time especially at a special festival time", she said, referring to Hari Raya Haji, the Islamic "festival of sacrifice" celebrations.

"We can see you are working so hard as well as praying with us and being with us. She is not independent and does not go anywhere alone", they said.

Nora, who has an Irish passport, went missing last Sunday.

THE SEARCH for missing teenager Nóra Quoirin is continuing following the discovery of footprints in the area near where she disappeared. Posters of the girl have also been circulated in the district. Nora likes to walk with her family but her balance is limited and she struggles with co-ordination.

"More family members are travelling to Malaysia to participate in the search and rescue effort and would appreciate donations to cover any unforeseen expenses or charges incurred in the process", it added.
