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

According to The New York Times, Martinez's mother made contact with her later the same day she reported her missing and shared that information with the sheriff's office on December 12.

The North Coast Journal reported the story after initially posting a list of 35 people who at the time were listed as missing in Humboldt County, which is in Northern California.

When editors at the Journal posted the story to Facebook and asked readers if they recognized any of the missing people, one eagle-eyed user quickly spoke up.

Actually, somebody did. They recognized that fan favorite from "The Bachelor".

Martinez, 22, has been listed as missing on the California Department of Justice's website since November 12. Martinez hasn't been eliminated yet, so it's not clear how or if any of her time filming the show lines up with the period of time when she was believed to be missing. She was last seen on November 12, then reported missing on November 18.

Martinez is one of 10 other women still in contention on The Bachelor.

Bekah Martinez poses for her "Bachelor" portrait. "Her mother hadn't heard from her since November 12, 2017", Karges wrote to the publication.

Martinez took the news in stride, retweeting the North Coast Journal's story with the words, "MOM". The most pressing question: How did Martinez's name end up on the California Attorney General's website as a missing person, when she was clearly alive and well and active on social media during the time period she was supposedly missing?
