Chloe Ayling, UK model kidnapped for dark web auction, reveals ordeal

A British model was allegedly kidnapped and detained for six days.

British model, Chloe Ayling was abducted and held in Milan, Italy for six days. The 20-year-old mother of one was visiting Milan for a photo shoot arranged by her agent. Ayling was attacked by two men, drugged, placed in a bag and transported to a remote cabin, in the Italian Alps.


In a statement to the police, published in Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera, she said:

“A person wearing black gloves came up from behind and put one hand on my neck and the other on my mouth, while a second person, wearing a black balaclava, injected me in my right arm.”
“I think I lost consciousness. When I woke up I was wearing a pink bodysuit and the socks I’m in now.
“I realized I was in the boot of a car, with my wrists and ankles tied and my mouth taped. I was inside a bag, with only a small hole that allowed me to breathe.”

Ayling said she feared for her life!

“I’ve been through a terrifying experience. I feared for my life, second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour,” Ayling reportedly told Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper. “I am incredibly grateful to the Italian and UK authorities for all they have done to secure my safe release.”


The kidnapper said that she was only released because she had a young child.

The abduction, according to Ayling, contravened the rules of the group. Therefore, she was released by the kidnapper before being sold in an online auction.


A 30-year-old Polish national, Lukasz Herba has been arrested on kidnapping charges.

The polish national who dropped Ayling outside the British consulate building in Milan, according to the police, has been arrested on kidnapping charges.
