    Why would she even need shoes if she was a prisoner?

    Italian police are questioning certain aspects of the story:

    Herba also emailed The Daily Mirror two days into the kidnapping, under the heading ‘British model kidnapped by Russian mafia’, apparently offering to sell the story as well as photos of Ms Ayling.

    He told the Italian police that he had falsely claimed the Russian mafia were involved in order to “attract attention”.

    Kidnapper was arrested while he was accompanying the model to the British consultant? I admit I'm a very skeptical person so I'll just say, "I'm very skeptical. Shoe shopping too. Huh?

    This is a hoax right?
    Sad because human trafficking is a horrible, evil practice.

    I can understand a prisoner needing shoes. I can't understand why a kidnapper would risk taking out a recent captive to try on shoes in a fancy looking boutique though.

    Was she even reported missing? What were her childcare arrangements during this modelling trip - if she'd left her child with someone surely she'd have told them when she'd be back?

    It's a bizarre case, to say the least, but there have been a number of cases where kidnapper and victim were seen together buying things, or going public places, kidnapper allowed victim to go out by him or herself, etc.
    And never mind a recent case in US, which was so strange that police even declared it a hoax. Turns out it was an actual kidnapping.
    So I am not assuming just because it's bizarre, it isn't real.
    Just my opinion

    He gave her chocolates and panties?
    Early report she was shackled to chest of drawers but now she and the kidnapper slept together in the same bed. OK.

    Correct but in these cases the victim only gets taken out in public after months of intense conditioning. Not after a few days!

    This is the first time I've ever heard of releasing someone and giving the kidnap victim thirty days to pay a fee. Ransom on a payment plan?

    I can't help but be curious as to what shoes she wore while shoe shopping? It's hard for me to visualize her going barefoot into a boutique to shop.

    IF this is a hoax... it's so sad -- because genuine human trafficking is horrifying and vile.

    This reeks of a bad movie script. I cannot possibly believe this was legit if the detail reported are all correct.

    This is my oppinion, not looking for a time out again, please let me know if what I said/say is not allowed

    I think this is a lot of bs costing the police a lot of men hours and $$$$$, Take a look at her pictures on the Daily Mail - she looks like an escort not a model - if it was me, I would not have looked for publicity or at least I would have dressed very conservatively for the interviews.....

    If this IS a hoax, they should be duct taped together and thrown in jail. I saw this on CNN (so it has to be true, right? lol) and was shocked. After reading the statistics in post #11, I could believe human trafficking occurred on this large of a scale. So unbelievably tragic! At the very least, they should required to do some type of public service to help REAL victims of this horrible crime. But if this is a hoax then I'm sure they're incapable of helping others; they're are obviously sick people. Rant over, and all moo, but this really kind of po'd me off. (I could NOT believe...not could)

    I will eat my hat if this is real.

    It's a bad writers version of an erotic fetish story. Little to no sense, and the girl is all smiles in interviews after.

    Denise Huskins and Sherri Papini, while we questioned if it was a hoax, they both werent skipping through their front yard smiling while talking to reporters about being kidnapped
