"We are extremely impressed by the effort, your expertise, your dedication and we hope you find Nora".

A number of vehicles, including forensics vans, have been seen heading onto the area where the body was found.

The authorities have been searching for Nora for 10 days following her disappearance from an eco-resort in Malaysia where she was on holiday with her family.
