GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) - The wife of a missing Murrells Inlet man is behind bars Saturday.

Officials are working to release more information after 74-year-old Irene Clodfelter was arrested Saturday, according to Georgetown County booking records. She faces two charges of Obstructing Justice, with bail set at $50,000.

Clodfelter told authorities she last saw her husband, Hubert Lee Clodfelter, in March 2019.

GCSO spokesman Jason Lesley says he anticipates more information being released later Saturday afternoon.
