At least 20 people have been questioned in Malaysia in connection with the disappearance of an Irish teenager from a holiday resort this week.

Fifteen-year-old Nora Anne Quoirin was reported missing on Sunday, a day after her family had arrived at the Dusun resort in Seremban.

More than 200 searchers, dogs and two drones scoured the surrounding thickly-forested area, with the police interviewing Quoirin's family and resort staff, and collecting fingerprints from the hotel room.

Police are still treating the disappearance as a missing persons case, but did not rule out the possibility that she may have been kidnapped.
