Bachelor Fan Favorite Contestant Bekah Martinez isn’t a Missing Person
If your a fan of ABC’s series “The Bachelor,” your probably familiar with the contestant Bekah Martinez.
http://aspenridgeprepschool.org/week-of-oct-5th-2015/ She’s the free spirited, fan favorite 22-year-old, Nanny with a pixie cut, who is competing for the affection of former Indie car driver Arie Luyendyk Jr.
The nation first met the nanny from Fresno, Calif., on the Jan. 1 season premiere of the show, when she showed up to meet 36-year-old race car driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. in a cherry red 1968 Mustang.
She soon became a standout among the women trying to win for Arie’s heart. However, it’s unclear how she managed to fly under the Humboldt County, California missing persons radar and go unnoticed for five episodes.
It’s unclear how this happened, but it’s known that “Bachelor” contestants can only say so much about their involvement in the show. That coupled with poor communication are both factors which attributed to her making national headlines as a “missing person.”
The official story and news release reported that: Martinez’s mother said her daughter called November 12, using a friend’s cell phone. She reportedly told her mom that “she was going to work on a marijuana farm and would see her in seven to eight days.” says a news release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office.
Martinez’s mother filed the missing person report November 18, and deputies tried unsuccessfully to reach her, the release said. The case was turned over to the criminal investigations division.
Martinez had been active on social media during the time she was reported missing.
She told her followers on Sept. 17 that she was “giving up” her phone and social media for several weeks, possibly because the show’s contestants are cut off from their phones, as well as television and the internet during filming.
She began posting again via Instagram on Nov. 22, 10 days after her mother said she hadn’t heard from her and four days after she was officially reported missing.
I think it’s safe to say… the only thing missing in the Martinez family is Bekah’s lack of romance.
The Bachelor airs every Monday at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
