CHARLOTTE (CBS Charlotte) – A missing South Carolina woman did not drown in the ocean after all, reports WSOC-TV.

North Mytle Beach officials say Amy Lynette Arrington conspired with her husband, Paul David Arrington, to disappear in order to avoid going to court in Charlotte on charges of identity theft.

Amy Arrington is accused of using another woman’s account information to buy thousands of dollars of merchandise from Amazon.com and pay cable and bank bills.

Court records show she has gone by at least three other names: Amy Robinson, Amy Goebel and Amy Sutton.

“Love does crazy things,” said Paul’s nephew Joseph Arrington. “When things eventually turned up, like criminal record and stuff I couldn’t believe it. Because she seemed like a perfect, I mean, normal person.”

Her husband has been charged with filing a false police report.
