Authorities have been treating Nora's disappearance as a missing persons case, but her family have said they believe she may have been abducted.

The 50,000 ringgit (€10,800) reward announced on Monday was donated by an anonymous Belfast-based business, according to a statement issued through the Lucie Blackman Trust, which is working with the family.

The Lucie Blackman Trust, a charity supporting missing people overseas, said police believed the teenager could have been taken.

The family are convinced it is a criminal matter but local police initially said there were no signs of foul play.

The discovery was made by a member of the public on the tenth day of an intensive search of the jungle surrounding the eco-resort where she was on holiday.
