A British glamour model who claimed she had been kidnapped in Italy and offered for sale on the dark web left police with "understandable doubts" about her story, her lawyer has said.

Phil Green, of the Supermodel Agency which sent her to Milan, said: 'I can assure everybody that it was real.

Francesco Pesce was making the rounds of British media Tuesday, pitching his case that Ayling was an innocent victim and not a party to the crime.

Police in Milan expressed doubt about his story, and said he provided no evidence to confirm his cancer diagnosis.

Ayling said she went to an apartment in Italy where she believed the scheduled photo shoot would take place, but instead was attacked by multiple men and drugged, before being put in a suitcase and tossed in the back of a auto, police said. She was then driven to a house located in a remote area outside the city of Turin, police said. "She made a decision to go along with it to avoid any kind of conflict, followed him blindly and went into a shoe shop".

"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", she said in a statement to police, which was published by Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

"So she thought that the best idea was to go along with it and be nice to her captor, because he told her he wanted to release her somehow and some time".

She told presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford: "She's a handsome girl, she's lovely, she is just a little naive".

When the model arrived at the photo studio, she was attacked by two people, drugged, and taken in the trunk of a auto to a cabin in Lemie, Italy, where she was held captive for almost a week, according to a statement from the Lombardia Police Department.

Days later, police arrested Lukasz Pawel Herba, a Polish immigrant who told Ayling he was associated with a gang called Black Death.

Italian officials released a mugshot of a suspect, named as 30-year-old Lukasz Pawel Herba. She looked a little perplexed as she said: "Knowing that she's a Page 3 girl and she's gonna go to the press, this gang released her".

The lawyer Ayling has while the case is under investigation - standard procedure in Italy - acknowledged Monday that aspects of the case seem freaky. All have declined to discuss whether they are questioning Ayling's version of events.

Since her return to the UK, Miss Ayling has signed to celebrity agency Kruger Cowne, which also represents stars including Sir Bob Geldof, Elle McPherson and Cher. She thanked Italian and United Kingdom authorities for "all they have done to secure my safe release". One suspect is in custody.

"I think I lost consciousness", she said in a statement given to the Telegraph. "Second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour".

"She said it was horrendous", Belluci told the news outlet.

"I wasn't supposed to be taken because the boss had seen my Instagram profile and saw my full name and some photos which clearly showed that I was a mother with a small baby and this was against the rules of the organization", Ayling said.
