Arrest Warrant Out for Woman Reported Missing at Myrtle Beach
MYRTLE BEACH, NC -- There are warrants out for the arrest of a Gaston county woman reported missing in North Myrtle Beach. Amy Arrington's husband says she disappeared after going for a swim in the ocean over the weekend.
WCCB Charlotte has confirmed that there are warrants out for her arrest here in Mecklenburg County under her maiden name, Amy Robinson. She was supposed to go on trial Monday in Charlotte as a habitual felon. Robinson faces a laundry list of felony charges, including identity theft.
Paul Arrington reported his wife missing to police in North Myrtle Beach around 6:30 Saturday night. He told a lifeguard he last saw Amy walking into the ocean. He told her he would join her in a few minutes. Twenty minutes later, he says he saw a woman that looked like her, but it wasn't. Rescuers and police at the beach are still searching for her.
"We've notified places to the north of us, coastal communities, because if there is a drowning, bodies can sometime wash up in that area," said North Myrtle Beach Spokesperson Pat Dowling.
Robinson-Arrington has arrest records in Mecklenburg, Gaston and Union counties.
