UK model kidnapped and held captive in Italy for six days

British model 'kidnapped and drugged' before being AUCTIONED online

A BRITISH model was put up for auction on the internet with a starting bid of USD$353,000 (A$445,000) after being kidnapped and drugged when she showed up to a sham photoshoot in Milan.

The 20-year-old woman had been lured to Milan by the promise of a modelling shoot, after the alleged kidnappers had contacted her agent to book her.

She is believed to have been drugged and transported in a bag to a secluded village near Turin, before being released on July 17.

A 30-year-old Polish national who resides in the United Kingdom was arrested on kidnapping charges.

The kidnapper used an encrypted account and then asked the model's agent for $300,000 to stop her from being sold in auction.

Herba, who is reported to now live in the West Midlands, is accused of luring the woman to Milan from Paris with a promise of a fake photoshoot.


Prosecutors in Italy said Herba was linked to the Black Death criminal organisation that works on the dark web.

Corriere della Sera, a Milan newspaper, reported that the kidnapper let his victim go because he discovered she had a child and considered her unsuitable for the sex trade. Italian authorities believe that no ransom was paid for her release.

As she was released on July 17th, her captor told her: "Our rules exclude mothers". It is unclear if she attempted to gather the money.

The woman, who has not been named, was allegedly kidnapped by two men on 11 July as she turned up for a fake photo shoot.

Officers are now investigating the incident after the man was captured with the model. He was jailed for investigation of suspected kidnapping for extortion purposes.

A spokesperson for the Foreign Office confirmed they are "providing consular support to a British woman in Italy and are in touch with local authorities".
