British glamour model Chloe Ayling claimed to have been abducted and held hostage for six days after being lured to Milan for a bogus photo shoot by a gang who intended to auction her as a sex slave. 20-year-old Chloe Ayling was only freed when her captors realised she had a baby son back home in London. Chloe claimed to have been injected with a drug and hidden in a bag in the boot of a car before later on, during her captivity, becoming aware she was being auctioned for sale on the Dark Web for £270,000.
After six days of captivity, Chloe was taken to the British consulate in Milan by one of her captors, Polish-born Lukasz Herba, 30, from Oldbury in the West Midlands. Herba was promptly arrested himself. Chloe claimed that neither Herba nor any other captor sexually assaulted her.
Now questions are being raised about the veracity of Chloe's claims since it appears that Herba took Chloe shopping during her abduction. Italian police have admitted that they are looking into the possibility that Chloe and Herba may have been collaborating, though they do not have clearcut proof.
