KUALA LUMPUR: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong, Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah, have expressed their condolences to the family of Nora Anne Quoirin.

They said they are deeply saddened to hear of her passing.

In a statement released by Istana Negara on Thursday (Aug 15), Their Majesties expressed their condolences and utmost sympathy to Nora Anne's parents, siblings and extended family.

Sultan Abdullah also thanked the support of the search-and-rescue teams from Britain, France, Ireland and Malaysia as well as the volunteers for their assistance, solidarity and prayers for the family during this difficult time.

His Majesty further advised the public not to speculate on the case until police investigations are completed.

A search-and-rescue team found Nora Anne's remains in a ravine at 1.57pm on Tuesday (Aug 13).

Her remains had to be winched up by helicopter and taken to the hospital for the post-mortem.

Her unclothed body was found in a stream some 2.5km from the resort she was staying in.

The teenager disappeared from the resort she was living with her family on Aug 4.

She had checked into the property with her parents Sebastian Marie Philipe and Meabh Jaseprine Quoirin and siblings Innes Julia and Maurice Arthure a day earlier.

However, she was not found in her room she shared with her siblings the following morning.

A window in the room that could only be opened from the inside was open.
