SEREMBAN: Hundreds of Muslims held special prayers today for French-Irish girl Nora Quoirin, who went missing at a resort near here, as a massive search team rocked the jungle for a sixth day.

Nora, a 15-year-old with learning difficulties, disappeared on Sunday after entering the Dusun resort with her London family.

They believe she was kidnapped, but police have classified it as a missing person case.

A search team of more than 250 people, backed by helicopters, drones and coffee dogs, hunt through dense jungle near the site, but have found no trace of her.

The teams also recorded a recording of their mother, Meabh Quoirin, calling out "Nora, Nora, sweetheart, here," through loudspeakers in hopes of getting her out of the jungle if she's still there.

During Friday prayers at a nearby mosque, about 300 prayed that she would be found safe and well.

"What we are doing today is helping our friends search," said Mohamad Taufek Awaludin, who led a special prayer session.

"We hope the family will be patient."

Several police officers and firefighters were among the group.

Nora's family said it would be extremely unusual for the reserved young man to wander alone. While officially treating it as a case of missing, police say they have not ruled out any other possibilities.

They interrogated about 20 people and examined fingerprints found on a windowsill.
