Ms Ayling was informed that she was going to be sold to somebody in the Middle East for sex and complied with her captor during the alleged kidnap because she was told she would be killed if she tried to flee, Mr Pesce said.

Police launch invesitigation after girl, 19, falls to her death from multi-storey vehicle parkChloe, of Coulsdon, south London, recalled the moment she was abducted, saying: 'I didn't know what was in the syringe.

Lukasz Herba, a 30-year-old Polish national who resides in the United Kingdom, was arrested on kidnapping charges after he dropped Ayling off outside the British consulate building in Milan on July 17, police said.

"Is it not unusual that you went to buy shoes with your abductor?" "I understood Chloe was still in danger so I kept the meeting with the police secret, as the officers asked me to", he said. She described Ayling as "a good girl, a little bit naive". She made a decision to go along with it to avoid any kind of conflict, followed him blindly, went into the shoe shop. The source said: "I can't say too much because Chloe is being debriefed by British police and the Foreign Office, but she did know the man who kidnapped her. He specifically asked for her".

Ayling says she was attacked in Milan in July while attending a photo shoot.

The 20-year-old said she was injected with ketamine after being lured to a fake modelling shoot in Milan before being bundled into the boot of a vehicle and told she was going to be sold as a sex slave.

On Tuesday, Lorenzo Bucossi, head of the Milan Police Mobile Command unit, told CNN "at this point there is no proof of any collusion". I was panicking. I thought they were going to rob or rape me.

'They dragged me to the floor. I just gave up - I thought, "I'm not going to get out of here alive".

'I felt trapped, then everything went black'.

Her alleged kidnappers told her they had taken the "wrong woman" as she had a son - but that she would be auctioned off with bids starting at 300,000 dollars (£230,000). She said she was drugged, placed in a bag, and transported to a cabin in a remote town close to the Italian Alps. "That will always be the worst day of my life".

Meanwhile, the chief suspect in the alleged kidnap has said he did not knowingly take part in any crime.

Herba says his involvement stems from wanting to raise money to treat his leukaemia and that he was hired by a group of Romanians to rent properties around Europe to store garments they were selling, according to reports.

Ayling told police that her kidnapper said she was being released because she had a young child, and that such an abduction contravened the group's rules.

He said he was paid £500,000, found out the Romanians meant to kidnap her, and backed out of the plan.
