(CNN)The parents of missing London teenager Nora Quoirin have offered a £10,000 ($12,000) reward for information leading to the return of their daughter, who vanished from a remote resort in Malaysia more than a week ago while on holiday with her family.
Parents of missing teenager Nora Quoirin offer reward for information, as search enters its second week
Search teams have been trawling the rainforest surrounding the Dusun resort since the 15-year-old, who has a learning disability, was found to be missing from her bedroom on Sunday, August 4.

"She likes to tell us silly jokes and wear clever, colourful t-shirts. She is not like other teenagers. She is not independent and does not go anywhere alone."
"Nóra is very sensitive. Outside the family, Nóra is very s
