California woman missing? Not so fast - she's on 'The Bachelor'

The Bachelor contestant Bekah Martinez's appearance on the show may have led to a missing person's case!

The Bachelor contestant Rebekah Martinez was reported missing in Humboldt County, California, when she was simply filming the show. There are also a notable number of similarities between Martinez's profile on The Bachelor website, which went up January 1, and the official missing persons report on the Attorney General's website.

Martinez had posted on September 17 that she was giving up her phone and social media for several weeks.

"As part of procedure, Humboldt County Sheriff's Office deputies are typically required to make direct contact with the missing person to confirm status and wellbeing, as geographical and other factors allow".

Bekah Martinez, a 22-year-old nanny living in Los Angeles, was reported missing last November by her mother, who hadn't heard from her in several days. That prompted an email from Public Information Officer Samantha Karges to the deputy who initially took Martinez's missing persons report, noting the similarity in images and asking if Martinez was still listed as missing.

On Thursday, after the newspaper article was published, a deputy again tried to contact Ms. Martinez by phone, the sheriff's office said.

Unsurprisingly, someone eventually recognised Martinez as a contestant from the Bachelor - on the very season which is taking place now.

However, she remained active on social media, writing nearly 30 posts on Instagram since she went "missing", including one post on November 22, just four days after she was reported missing.

Bekah Martinez has been making headlines for being the youngest The Bachelor bachelorette on Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Reality TV has its share of twists and turns, but I've never heard of anything quite like this! The deputy said that they had spoken with Bekah M. on the phone and confirmed that she is, in fact, alive and well. She indicated that she believes Bekah's mother had a "legitimate concern" as far as the wellbeing of her daughter went.

Ironically, Bekah has been active on Twitter and Instagram throughout the time she was reported missing.

Martinez has actively posted on Instagram and Twitter since she was reported and when her freaky story was reported by media on February 2, she tweeted a message referring to the photo used in the missing person report.
