They say the remains found “resemble” Nora who disappeared ten days earlier while on a family holiday.
Her family, who have strong Derry connections, are currently on their way to the mortuary for a formal identification process.
As news broke that the body “resembled” Nora, evening prayers rang out in the local community.
Her body was found by a search volunteer need a stream around 2 kilometres from her hotel in the Dusun rainforest resort.
The 15-year-old vanished from her room.
