One of the “Bachelor” fan favorites Bekah Martinez was on the Humboldt County Missing Persons list for weeks before viewers discovered she was not, in fact, missing at all.
According to a Humboldt County official, Martinez had reportedly told her mom that she was leaving home to go work on a marijuana farm for a while. The last time her mom heard from her was November 12, so she filed a missing person report on November 18.

It’s worth noting that in mid-September, Bekah told her Instagram followers that she’d be taking a break from all social media — without giving a reason.
“HI ALL i’m giving up my phone and social media for the next several weeks, so if you need to contact me, welll… tough luck!” she said.
At a certain point you just have to respect this move. Bekah so badly did not want her mom to find out that she was going on a reality dating show that told her she was going work on a pot farm instead. Not joining a nunnery. Not traveling to Africa on a mission trip. Farming pot in the same country. 2018 has been a wild ride.
Bekah’s been a fan favorite from the beginning because she rocks a short pixie cut, never wears a bra, is 14 years younger than Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. She also has major drama with Krystal Nielson, a fitness instructor who’s also after Arie’s heart.
Bekah has since been taken off the missing persons list. No word on if her mom’s upset over the news.
The next Bachelor runs this Monday at 8 PM ET on ABC.
