British backpacker reveals how she was ‘kidnapped’ in Australian hostel by a man she met at a hostel

A British backpacker allegedly kidnapped in Australia has told MailOnline of the terrifying two hours where she was held captive by a ‘mentally unstable’ man who she feared may never let her go.

Mary Kate ‘Miri’ Heys, 20, was forced to use Google maps to reveal her location to her father Antony in England, who then alerted Queensland police to her plight, when a Swedish backpacker she had befriended over the past two weeks took her hostage in the early hours of Monday morning.
