According to the North Coast Journal, Martinez’s mother reported her missing on Nov. 18 after not hearing from her since Nov. 12, a time frame that aligns with “The Bachelor’s” typical taping schedule. The newspaper noted that after a reader pointed out that Martinez was on “The Bachelor,” a public information officer in Humboldt County (where Martinez at some point worked on a marijuana farm, the Journal reported) spoke to Martinez and said that she’s been removed from the missing and unidentified persons unit.
On Friday, Martinez addressed the mix-up on Twitter in the most daughter voice possible:
“Bachelor” contestants no doubt have a lot to do before uprooting their lives for what could be weeks to months. There’s a packing list that includes athleisure, ballgowns, “clothes for all types of weather — snow, rain, sun and wind.” If you’re Martinez, that list might include bringing enough weed for several weeks of a high-stress environment. All to fit in two suitcases.
There’s also likely a long to-do list, which might include paying your bills; putting a hold on your mail; suspending all beauty subscription boxes; shipping a pet off to its grandparents; deputizing a responsible friend to water your succulents … and telling your mother you’ll be incommunicado for a while.
