Seremban, Aug 10 (AP/UNB) — The parents of a 15-year-old London girl who disappeared from a Malaysian resort a week ago say she isn't independent and has difficulty walking, in new details to support their conviction that she was abducted.
Irish Meabh Quoirin and her French husband Sebastien Quoirin say Nora Anne was born with holoprosencephaly, a malformation that causes her to have a smaller brain and led to learning and physical disabilities.
They said in a statement Saturday that the teen likes to walk with her family but "her balance is limited and she struggles with coordination. She has been to Asia, and many European countries before, and has never wandered off or got lost."
The family discovered her missing last Sunday morning from the Dusun eco-resort in southern Negeri Sembilan state.
