The Bachelor's Bekah Martinez Explains Why Her Mom Reported Her Missing

The Bachelor contestant Bekah Martinez is explaining why her mother reported her missing after filming the show.

“I just decided to go to the mountains with my friends for a couple weeks [after filming The Bachelor] and I was there for six or seven days without phone service, which I thought I was going to have phone service and I told my mother that I would,” the 23-year-old explained. “I just had this weird feeling on the sixth or seventh day. ‘I need to go home now,’”she recalled thinking. “So, I got in my car, drove to where I had service, called my parents and then come to find out [that] only 12 hours before, my mother had called the Humboldt Sheriff’s Department saying that I was missing.”

'Bachelor' Contestant Bekah Martinez's Mom Thought She Was Missing While on the Show

The Bachelor contestant Bekah Martinez‘s appearance on the show may have led to a missing person’s case!

The 22-year-old reality show contestant was recently featured in her hometown newspaper as a missing person and it all stemmed from her time on The Bachelor.

While her family was aware she was taping the show last fall, Bekah‘s mom got a little worried when she hadn’t heard from her in several days.

According to social media, Bekah left for filming in September but on November 18th her mother filed a missing persons report, saying she had last heard from Bekah on November 12th.

It turns out that Bekah had limited access to her phone and ended up contacting her mom the same day she filed the report.

The police could not remove Bekah from the missing persons system until they made direct contact with her, which didn’t happen until this week.

“MOM. how many times do I have to tell you I don’t get cell service on The Bachelor??” Bekah wrote on her Twitter.

How Old is Bekah M. on 'The Bachelor'? Her Age Is a Huge Topic

The age of The Bachelor contestant Bekah M. seems to be a huge topic on the show this season!

When the bios of the 29 ladies competing for Arie Luyendyk Jr.‘s love were announced last month, Bekah‘s age was mysteriously left off even though everyone else’s was provided.

During the season premiere, Bekah said that she is 22, which was 14 years younger than Arie, who is 36.

In the teaser for the rest of the season, one of the other ladies is heard saying “I wonder if her age is going to be a deal breaker” and another says “I think she is reluctant to tell Arie how old she is.”

Bekah, who is the youngest in the competition, says through tears, “I’m like, sick of people saying that.”

People are questioning if Bekah is actually 22 and while she may be younger, contestants have to be at least 21-years-old to appear on the show.
