Nora, 15, disappeared a week ago from the family’s cottage at the Dusan Rainforest, near Seremban, Malaysia.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police and the National Crime Agency are now helping in the hunt for Nora who was born with the brain defect holoprosencephaly and has special needs

Irish officers who are believed to have hostage and kidnap specialists, are also cooperating with the search operation.

An NCA spokeswoman confirmed: “The National Crime Agency, the Met Police and An Garda Siochana are working together.”

Nora’s parents Meabh and Sebastien are also considering an offer of a cash reward for information.

A spokesman for the Irish-French Quoririn family said: “I’m delighted to see support deployed.”

Hundreds of volunteers have been searching the Malaysian jungle.

If the family, from Balham, south west London, do offer a reward they may use two online funds set up which have so far raised nearly £100,000.

A Mirror source said: “They think it may help but are taking thorough advice.

“They’re going through hell.”

Child protection expert Jim Gamble, who has been helping the family, believes that a reward could help by “prompting someone’s conscience”.

Malaysian police have no leads but believe that Nora left barefoot through a window.

Her dad Sebastien, 47, raised the alarm at 8am the following day.

Nora’s family believe she must have been abducted and say that her disability meant that she “does not go anywhere alone”.

Police in Malaysia have set up a dedicated hotline to receive information.

Nora’s mother Meabh has thanked volunteers who are helping in the search.

She said: “You have given up your time especially at a special festival time.”
