Bekah was reported missing on November 18, 2017 by her mother, who reportedly hadn't heard from her since November 12.
Deputies tried reaching Martinez, because it's protocol for law enforcement to physically see and confirm the well-being of someone who has been reported missing, but had no luck contacting her. Readers recognized Rebekah Martinez right away, and after a phone call with the deputy, she's been removed from the list. Samantha confirmed that, after speaking with Bekah on the phone, they'd confirmed she was the same person and is, obviously, not missing after all.
Martinez tweeted out the link to the North Coast Journal on Friday, February 2, reacting to the situation.
Many of you know Bekah Martinez as the 22-year-old battling to win Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s heart on Season 22 of The Bachelor, but few know that she was also a reported missing person in the state of California only a couple days ago.
The nation first met the nanny from Fresno, California, on the January 1 season premiere of the show, when she showed up to meet 36-year-old race auto driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. in a cherry red 1968 Mustang.
She also joked that the 'scariest thing about this story is that my efforts to hide The Worst Drivers License Photo Of All Time have been thwarted'.
Eagle-eyed viewers of "The Bachelor" identified Rebekah Helena Martinez this week as a contestant on the show's current season after the North Coast Journal showed her photo among 35 people missing in the county, according to the publication.
At 22 she is also the youngest contestant on The Bachelor this year - and significantly younger than the 36-year-old race vehicle driver bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
