Even though you may be right, it probably didn't seem that way to the victim in this case.

I've read a bunch of articles about this today...

If it's true, it's horrendously terrifying.

However, it seems that investigators are looking into the possibility that it was faked, as a lot of the story doesn't add up.

For instance, she knew her kidnapper, during her 6 days in captivity, her kidnapper already tried to sell the story to a British newspaper, it has been confirmed that she went out to buy shoes (during her time in captivity), and Italian police are also working on leads that her and her kidnapper were seen out and about beyond that.

I realize that people who have been abducted for months or years can develop Stockholm syndrome, so are less likely to try and escape if their kidnapper takes them out in public, but I find it unlikely that this would be the case within a 6 day period.

Like I said, if it's true, it's awful... if it's not, it was quite the publicity stunt for this girls fledgling modeling career.

This story has more holes than swiss cheese.

Looks like someone's been watching one too many "Taken" movies.

Chloe Ayling initially told Milan police she was held for six days, at times with her hands and feet cuffed to a dresser, until one of her kidnappers released her at the British consulate in Milan on July 17.

But on the second day of questioning, detectives presented the 20-year-old with a statement from a saleswoman who said she sold shoes to the model and the main suspect in her abduction the day before Ayling turned up at the consulate.

In tears, the young woman told investigators she couldn't give a "reasonable explanation" for why she had omitted the shopping trip, but said she considered the man who accompanied her the best chance of gaining freedom.
