British police have now joined the effort to find 15-year-old Nóra.

On Friday, gardai confirmed a liaison officer was being dispatched to assist with the investigation.

According to The Herald, an elite team of Garda hostage and kidnap specialists are also now on standby to join the search if evidence emerges that she was abducted.

Hundreds of people are taking part in the search for the teenager, who has special needs.
