Authorities in northwest Arkansas are searching for a Kansas woman who they say apparently made a bogus murder report.


Washington County sheriff's deputies say 21-year-old Amanda Kay Shelby of Baxter, Kan., is wanted on a felony charge of filing a false police report.


An affidavit for an arrest warrant says Shelby told deputies she watched a man shoot another man twice during a drug deal and that she helped dump the body in Beaver Lake.


Deputies searched the home where the homicide reportedly occurred and arrested the resident on drug-related charges — but say they found no evidence of a homicide.


The man Shelby accused of murder denies shooting anyone and passed a polygraph test administered by the Sheriff's Office.
