The boyfriend alerted police after she sent him a text message saying she had been kidnapped and thrown into the boot of a black car.

A massive search lasted more than 24 hours as around 50 soldiers backed by a helicopter scoured the region before Gaillard reappeared.

She raised suspicions with her calm account that her abductors had simply decided to free her, along with several inconsistencies in her story.

Gaillard said her new lover was not involved in the subterfuge.
