One Of “The Bachelor” Ladies Was Reported Missing By Her Mom While Filming The Show

February 3, 2018 / Posted by:

Bekah Martinez is currently on the new season of The Bachelor, and you would think that getting cast on the show’s current season would be something you’d let your family know about, right? You know – so they can watch you fight over a douche before a national audience and note to each other how high-def TV really highlights your overbite? Well, this part of her TV experience slipped Bekah’s mind, so she neglected to tell her mom she was going on the show. And her mom filed a missing persons report. Overprotective mother or some serious familial estrangement? Let’s find out!

People reports that 22-year-old Bekah, a Los Angeles nanny, was unaware that her and her pixie cut were on a missing persons list in California. After seeing Bekah’s “disappearance” mentioned on a local newscast, a Bachelor viewer solved the case for everyone. This was a selfless sacrifice seeing it let people know this person actually watches that mess.

A local paper in Humboldt County, CA posts the local missing people from the California DOJ’s list on Facebook every week. A reader recognized Bekah, and let them know. The paper compared Bekah’s picture from her missing poster to her Instagram pics and noted they were a match. So they rang up the Humboldt County Sherrif’s Association.

Their call prompted the deputy who initially took Martinez’s missing person’s report to reach out to her on Thursday via the cell phone number they had on file. After speaking to Martinez, the deputy confirmed that she was indeed not missing, and she was removed from the list.

But why was Bekah listed as missing in the first place when she’s been cattin’ and scratchin’ with other lovely ladies over a rose from some dork on national television? Call me Theresa Caputo because it DID involve familial estrangement. And weed! Bekah’s mom reported her missing on Nov 18, noting she hadn’t had contact with her since Nov 12.

According to her mother’s account, Martinez was allegedly planning on working at a marijuana farm in the area. Martinez’s mother told deputies she contacted Martinez via a friend’s cell phone on Nov. 12 at around 11 a.m. and told her she wanted her to come home. Martinez allegedly refused and said she would see her mother in seven to eight days. At the time, Martinez told her mother that she was near Eureka, an area about 45 minutes north or south of any marijuana farm.

It turns out that a lot of these Cali weed plantations don’t have exemplary cell signal, so Bekah was unable to be contacted. And then she went to film The Bachelor which doesn’t allow the contestants to use cell phones. So the machinery of missing persons justice put her onto the milk carton list.

As part of procedure, deputies are typically required to make direct contact with the missing person to confirm status and wellbeing. A deputy was not able to make direct contact with Martinez, which explains why she was not removed from the Missing and Unidentified Persons System until this week.

It sounds like Bekah’s not that close with her mom because she was posting on social media the entire time she was supposedly missing. Maybe her mom isn’t following her? And since this story broke, Bekah’s addressed it on Twitter.

IMHO, going on The Bachelor and humiliating yourself for roses is way worse than that license pic.
