Malaysia shaman, foreign police join in hunt for London teen
SEREMBAN, Malaysia — A Malaysian shaman has joined police from Ireland, France, and the United Kingdom in the search for a 15 -year-old London girl who disappeared from a nature resort eight days ago.
Nora Anne Quoirin’s family discovered her missing from the Dusun eco-resort in southern Negeri Sembilan state on August 4, in a case that has baffled the police and turned up no evidence so far. Police have listed her as a missing person but do not rule out a possible criminal element.
Negeri Sembilan deputy police chief Che Zakaria Othman said the search team has been expanded to 348 people, with the hunt now shifted to the nearby Berembun forest reserve.
Police released a video Monday showing a shaman wearing a white skullcap performing rituals in the forest. /kga
