LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Did you see the story of the Belize Tourism Board offering free trips for residents of Rachel looking to avoid the crowds during the "Storm Area 51" event this September?

Guess the 54 residents of the small town didn't because nobody ended up claiming the offer.

Despite offering packages that were said to include airfare and hotel accommodations from Sept. 19-21, no one eligible for the reward followed through.

"We had about 10 people reach out, but they weren’t located in Rachel whatsoever so they weren’t eligible," said a spokesperson for the Belize Tourism Board via e-mail. "We had one person who is located there enter, but we never heard back when we reached out to inform him."

Unfortunately for Rachel residents looking to escape, the offer has expired.
