The woman told the court she then re-shackled herself because she was too scared to run away.

Q: "When you managed to free yourself so you could get your laptop why didn't you start walking? Why didn't you start seeking help?" Mr Healy said.

A: "I was too scared to run off … that other people would just grab me," she replied.

The prosecution allege Mr Bristow became nervous when police started searching the area for a missing backpacker and drove her to a motel in Murray Bridge — telling her to catch a bus to Adelaide and fly home.

Along the way, it is alleged he left the woman on the side of the road for about 15 minutes while he changed cars.

Victim says accused was very manipulative Mr Healy told the court the woman decided to wait rather than trying to raise the alarm because she was not scared of Mr Bristow.

"You made no attempt to go to that building you saw to see if anyone was there," he said.

He also questioned why she did not contact police as soon as her alleged captor left the motel.

She told the court the accused was very manipulative and she believed his claims that the police were "corrupt" and part of the scheme.

"I didn't know which police were good and which weren't," the backpacker said.

"I would only feel safe when I was home, I didn't trust anyone else."

The court heard once she checked into the motel, the woman contacted her family to send her money for a ticket home and then went to McDonalds to buy something to eat.

She was spotted by an off-duty police officer walking back to the motel.

The trial before a jury of 12 continues.
