A woman reported missing in Northern California was discovered safe and sound by a fan who noticed she was a contestant on The Bachelor.
Rebekah Martinez was reported missing in November by her mother, who claimed her daughter disappeared since going to work on a marijuana farm, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.
Martinez had some fun with the situation on social media Friday, after her status as a reality show contestant was revealed.
MOM. how many times do I have to tell you I dont get cell service on The Bachelor?? the 22-year-old tweeted.
The whole ordeal began on Thursday when Martinez was listed as part of The Humboldt 35 a list of missing persons featured in a Californias North Coast Journal.
An eagle-eyed reader then responded to the story on the North Coast Journals Facebook page.
My sister always calls me Sherlock Holmes, the woman, Amy Bonner OBrien, told the Chronicle.
I was just scrolling through the 35 missing people and I recognized some of them from news stories. When I got to her, I was like wait a minute, she looks so familiar and I instantly thought of The Bachelor.’
Other fans chimed in on the social media network.
THIS IS STRANGE! Lindsay Grath wrote. How does one show as missing, yet on the Bachelor LOL!
Humboldt County Sheriffs Office was able to reach Martinez by phone and confirm that, indeed, she was not missing but looking for love on television instead.
The sheriffs office explained the matter by saying Martinezs mother had spoken to her daughter but her name stayed on the list because they had been unable to reach her directly until Friday.
I found myself, quite literally, on this season of #TheBachelor . pic.twitter.com/pRHhyFPEcb
