No official statement has been issued by police as of yet, with UK charity Lucie Blackman Trust saying they are still waiting for clarification.
Shamans conducted rituals in the Malaysian jungle on Monday in the latest bid to find a missing Franco-Irish teen, as her family offered a reward for information leading to the girl’s return.
Nora Quoirin, a 15-year-old with learning difficulties, disappeared on Aug. 4, just a day after checking into a resort near a rainforest with her London-based family.
They believe she was abducted, but Malaysian police have to this point classified it as a missing person case.
