Pat Dowling, spokesperson for North Myrtle Beach, said she turned herself in to authorities in Charlotte and is currently in jail in Mecklenburg County. She was booked under the name Amy Lynette Robinson. 

Paul David Arrington, her husband who reported her missing Sunday, is also now behind bars after he surrendered to North Myrtle Beach Police around 4 pm Thursday.

First responders in North Myrtle Beach spent hours searching for Arrington, 42, from Gastonia, North Carolina, after her husband Paul, told police she went in the water in the area of 24th Avenue North and North Ocean Boulevard, and didn't resurface.

Authorities later discovered Robinson was scheduled to appear in a Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, courtroom Monday to face identity theft and forgery charges. A judge issued a warrant for her arrest.

Charges for criminal conspiracy against Robinson are pending in North Myrtle Beach. Her husband, Paul David Arrington is expected to be charged with one count of criminal conspiracy and one count of making false complaint to law enforcement officer as well as giving false information to rescue squad or fire department.

Dowling, said the two conspired for her to disappear to avoid court in North Carolina.
