But the saga did not end there. Bekah and her parents immediately contacted the Sheriff’s office in Humboldt County to remove her from the missing persons list, but were only able to leave voicemail. This meant she was never taken off the list, and saw one North Coast Journal article published in February 2018 – as The bachelor was sent – reported her as still missing.
“Someone recognized me from the Bachelor and the story BLEW UP,” Bekah continued. “like seriously … exploded. It went international. but the facts were all enlightened. some people thought I was lying to my mother, told her I was on a weed farm when I was really on the bachelor ??”
This led to plenty of media coverage for her, including a spot on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “but the actual story was so long and confusing that I just told all the media that I had to go to my friend’s weed farm to” get away and relax “after taking the bachelor and I had no service, and so my mother thought I was missing [neutral-face emoji], “she admitted.” so many thought i was an a-hole for that lol. ”
Fortunately, everything worked out. “I’m sorry my parents had to endure the awful day,” concluded Bekah, now a mother of two. “and I certainly never talked to that girl again.”
Showing hands, who knew when she started telling this story that bear driving would be the least exciting aspect?
