Calif. Woman Reported Missing Found Alive and Well on 'The Bachelor'

Twitter

When Bekah Martinez’s mother feared her daughter was missing, it turns out all she had to do was turn on her television. The young woman had informed her mother back in November that she was going to Humboldt, Calif., to work on a marijuana farm. After her mom didn’t hear from her for six days, she listed Bekah on the Humboldt County Missing Person’s database. When someone saw a photo of the 22-year-old on the local news, they called the police. It turns out that Bekah wasn’t missing after all. In fact, she was front and center and visible to the entire world as a contestant on the wildly popular show, The Bachelor. Of all the places to find a missing person, huh?

Twitter, of course, had a field day with this one:

Which is worse news for your parents? Working on a pot farm or being on a reality show?

Come ON, mom!

And yes, it’s probably a good thing that the local police were looking everywhere but national television:

Even Bekah herself had a huge sense of humor about the incident. Wouldn’t it be a shame if your driver’s license photo was splashed all over the news and social media?
