On Thursday, the North Coast Journal posted a story, accompanied by photographs, about missing people in Humboldt County on Facebook, asking if any of their readers recognized anyone on the list.

The newspaper contacted the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, which spoke with Martinez and promptly removed her from the missing person's list.

It's more than just bad service-Bachelor contestants are required to turn in their phones to producers to prevent information from leaking out before the season airs.

How can you be on a state government missing persons list while simultaneously appearing on national TV? The account had been active throughout the time the woman had been listed as missing. Bekah Martinez was active on Instagram until September 17, when she told her followers that she was giving up social media (presumably to shoot The Bachelor). Martinez had told her mother she was going to work on a marijuana farm in Humboldt County.

But the show may have broken new ground after one of the contestants, Bekah Martinez, of Fresco, Calif., was reported as a missing person in November.

The photo Bekah's mother had released was of her daughter's old driver's license in which she was sporting an even shorter haircut and massive peacock-feather earrings.

Amy Bonner O'Brien of Trinidad was the first to respond to the Facebook post and identified Bekah as a contestant on this year's current season. Martinez announced on Instagram four months ago she would be giving up her phone and all social media for weeks, writing, "So if you need to contact me, well. tough luck!"

A woman reported missing in California was actually in a very visible place: competing on a reality show The Bachelor.

Bekah M. has become known to millions of viewers who are watching this season of The Bachelor. Martinez joked in response to the story on Twitter on Friday, adding: "honestly the scariest thing about this story is that my efforts to hide The Worst Drivers License Photo Of All Time have been thwarted". Not only was Bekah was most certainly alive and well - she had also been spotted by Bachelor Nation every Monday night on the hit dating show!

Martinez later quipped that the "scariest thing about this story is that my efforts to hide The Worst Drivers License Photo Of All Time have been thwarted".
