The wife of a Murrells Inlet man who was reported missing on Friday has been arrested and charged with obstructing justice, the sheriff’s department says.

Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office arrested Irene Clodfelter, 74, early Saturday morning and charged her with two counts of obstructing justice after she reported to authorities that she last saw her husband, Hubert Lee Clodfelter, in March. She is currently being held at the Georgetown County Detention Center on $50,000 bail.

Jason Lesley with the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Department said more information will be provided Sunday afternoon as authorities continue their investigation.
