CHARLOTTE: NC woman reported missing in SC surrenders - WRBL

NC woman reported missing in SC surrenders

Posted: Updated:

A Gaston County woman reported missing in South Carolina has turned herself in to police in Charlotte.

North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, spokesman Pat Dowling said that 42-year-old Amy Arrington of Lowell turned herself in Wednesday night.

Arrington was reported by her husband as a possible drowning victim at the South Carolina beach Saturday.

Investigators think the couple made up the story so she could avoid a court appearance in Charlotte this week on forgery and identity theft charges.

Court records show she was booked into the Mecklenburg County jail as Amy Lynette Robinson. The name Amy Arrington is listed as an alias. It was not clear if she has an attorney.

A judge had issued a warrant for her arrest when she failed to show up in court Monday.
