'The Bachelor' Contestant Found On California Police Missing Persons Report

'The Bachelor' Contestant Found On California Police Missing Persons Report

Bekah Martinez, a contestant on this season of "The Bachelor", was featured on a list of missing people in the North Coast Journal.

On Nov. 18, Rebekah Martinez, a 22-year-old contestant on ABC's "The Bachelor" was reported missing by her mother who said her daughter had gone Humboldt County to work on a marijuana farm. Authorities then tried to contact her in December, but couldn't get a hold of her.

The North Coast Journal included Martinezin a cover story featuring images of the 35 people listed as missing in Humboldt County on the California Department of Justice's website.

Unsurprisingly, someone eventually recognised Martinez as a contestant from the Bachelor - on the very season which is taking place now. "Her mother hadn't heard from her since November 12, 2017", Karges told The North Coast Journal.

But, despite her face airing on national television every Monday night, for a couple months, she was listed as a missing person.

This week, the California publication posted an investigative piece about Humbold, California's high rate of missing persons. As it turns out, she's been chasing romance on this season of "The Bachelor". At the time of writing, Bekah's missing person report is still active and up on the website.

Deputies tried reaching Martinez, because it's protocol for law enforcement to physically see and confirm the well-being of someone who has been reported missing, but had no luck contacting her. How many times do I have to tell you I don't get cell service on The Bachelor??'

She also took the time to mock her driver's license photo. When the season started, 29 women were vying for the attention of Arie Luyendyk Jr. a 36-year-old real estate agent and former race vehicle driver. She resumed posting on Instagram on November 22, days after her mother reported her missing, and has been consistently posting photos ever since. After writing on September 17 that she was giving up social media for "the next several weeks" - a time that corresponds with the filming of "The Bachelor" - she began posting photos on Instagram again on November 22.
