A current contestant on "The Bachelor" was identified as one of 35 missing persons after a newspaper shared the list with its cover story on missing people on Facebook.

Rebekah Martinez, the 22-year-old competing for the affections of Arie Luyendyk on the current season of ABC's "The Bachelor," was listed on the California Attorney General’s website as a missing person after her mother reported her gone in November.

Humboldt County, California's North Coast Journal shared Martinez's photo on its Facebook page Thursday with the question, “See anyone you recognize?” The original North Coast Journal article pointed out Humboldt County has the highest number of missing person reports in the state and wondered if there was any reason for the distinction. 

Almost immediately, a commenter replied to the Facebook post, “Yep, Rebekah Martinez is on this season of The Bachelor,” and posted a picture of her computer showing Martinez’s profile.

The Journal, which posted an additional story saying the young reality star was not missing, also contacted the Humboldt County Sheriff’s office, which was able to reach Martinez and confirm she is not actually missing and remove her from the list. 

Martinez’s mother reported her daughter missing in November after Martinez had reportedly come to Humboldt County to work on a marijuana farm and dropped out of contact, the Journal said. 

Martinez was active on Instagram during the time she was listed as missing, the Journal reported.

Responding to the missing persons mistake Friday, Martinez threw some humor into the issue.
