'The Bachelor' contestant Bekah Martinez a missing person? Not exactly

Martinez's Instagram went dark on September 23, when the 22nd season of The Bachelor began shooting, but she began posting again on November 18, a week after her mother reported her missing. The account had been active throughout the time the woman had been listed as missing.

Rebekah Martinez, of Fresno, California was reported missing on November 18 by her mother, who told the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office she hadn't heard from her daughter since she she came to the area to work on a marijuana farm six days earlier.

The publication later confirmed with the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office that, yes, it was indeed Martinez's face among the list of missing persons, and that it was since removed. So. does that mean she was actually filming The Bachelor when she "went missing?"

"(The mother) had phone contact with Bekah via a friend on the 12th", Public Information Officer Samantha Karges told SF Gate.

Martinez tweeted out the link to the North Coast Journal on Friday, February 2, reacting to the situation.

Martinez has responded to the story, writing on Twitter, "MOM. how many times do I have to tell you I don't get cell service on The Bachelor??".

And for her, the scariest part about all this is that now the whole world has seen her drivers license photo, one that she calls "The Worst Drivers License Photo Of All Time".

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 vehicle driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. in a cherry red 1968 Mustang.

Anyone who watches "The Bachelor" will already know about Bekah Martinez (known as "Bekah M." on the show) as a fan favorite due to her short haircut, proclivity for posting thought-provoking body hair-related Instagram stories, and 14-year age difference with bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr.

Martinez immediately caught the attention of some readers because, well, she isn't exactly missing - you know, considering that she just so happens to be a contestant on this season of "The Bachelor".

"The Bachelor" airs at 8 p.m.
