Malaysian police say a 15-year-old London teenager who mysteriously disappeared from a nature resort died from intestinal bleeding due to starvation and stress.

Negeri Sembilan state police Chief Mohamad Mat Yusop said Thursday an autopsy found no evidence Nora Anne Quoirin had been abducted or raped. She was estimated to have been dead for two or three days when her body was found.

Her naked body was discovered Tuesday beside a small stream about 1.6 miles from the Dusun eco-resort after disappearing from her family’s resort cottage on Aug. 4.

Her family’s lawyer earlier said they hoped police would investigate possible foul play. They also thanked searchers, saying: “Nora is at the heart of our family. She is the truest, most precious girl and we love her infinitely.”
