'Bachelor' contestant Bekah Martinez was actually on a missing persons list until just a few days ago

Bekah M. | The Bachelor -

Current Bachelor contestant Rebekah "Bekah" Martinez, she of a pixie cut, baby face and fierce Krystal impression, was reported missing by her mother in Humboldt County, California, on November 18, 2017.

The Journal reached out to local authorities, who confirmed that Martinez was not, in fact, missing and removed her from the missing person list.

It's more than just bad service-Bachelor contestants are required to turn in their phones to producers to prevent information from leaking out before the season airs. Her social media accounts and phone records indicate she was never missing, after all. They removed her from the missing persons list. If you want to see Martinez try to win the Bachelor's heart, you can find her on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. "Her mother hadn't heard from her since November 12, 2017", Public Information Officer Samantha Karges wrote.

Southern Yemen forces take control of Aden
Tribesmen in the area say the attack started with a mortar round fired at the checkpoint, followed by heavy gunfire. Saudi air defense forces reportedly blocked and shot down a missile fired at the location in November past year .

A month later, Martinez's mother told deputies that her daughter was doing well, but because deputies were unable to speak with the young woman her named remained in the database. 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. According to The Daily Mail, her mother told the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office that she had not been able to locate her daughter for six days.

A woman reported missing by her mother was seen by thousands when she appeared on "The Bachelor". 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.

It would sort of make sense - in as much as any of this makes sense - if Martinez had simply run off to the Bachelor mansion without telling anyone. Not only was Bekah was most certainly alive and well - she had also been spotted by Bachelor Nation every Monday night on the hit dating show! When the North Coast Journal posted an image of the people on the list onto Facebook, it asked its readers if they knew about their whereabouts.
