A woman from South Carolina has been arrested for allegedly lying to the police about her missing husband.
Irene Clodfelter, 74, was charged by the Sheretown office in Georgetown on Saturday with two counts of obstructing justice in relation to the disappearance of her 85-year-old husband, Hubert Clodfelter.
On March 15, Irene and Hubert's daughter filed a report of a missing person with the police, claiming that she had not spoken to her father in two years.
Hubert Clodfelter (right) was missing on March 15, but his daughter and his neighbors say they would not have seen him in two years. His wife, Irene Clodfelter (left), insisted on police. She had seen him days before the report of the missing person was submitted.
The Clodfelter's daughter, who lives in Florida, told the police that every time she tried to reach her father on his cell phone, her mother would answer.
She further claimed that she spoke to her parents' neighbors, none of whom had seen Hubert in two years.
When she asked her mother about her father's whereabouts, the daughter was told that he & # 39; was traveling or fled from the law & # 39 ;, according to a report in WLTX 19.
However, when the police questioned Irene in March about her missing husband, she insisted that she had seen him a few days earlier.
The authorities now believe that they are opposing their attempts to locate Hubert, which on Saturday has the effect of hindering the administration of justice.
The charge came just one day after human remains were discovered in an RV park in the neighboring Horry district.
