A British Backpacker’s used Google Maps to save herself from a kidnapper on QLD’s Sunshine Coast.
The fellow tourist - a Swedish friend she'd met days earlier - woke the 20 year old in a manic state saying he wanted to go on an adventure.
He then abducted her from a hostel telling her he was an alien as he drove towards Cairns.
The woman managed to secretly send text messages to her Dad in the UK asking him to call Australian Police for help.
Police managed to track down the car she was travelling in and stopped it when it reached Gympie.
It’s believed the driver was transported to a mental institution and is set to be deported.
