He described the woman as “yet another victim of domestic violence”.

Archer is scheduled to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Friday afternoon by video link from police cells at Murray Bridge.

He handed himself in to police early on Friday morning.

Ms Meyers, 20, was last seen leaving a property near Murray Bridge on August 26.

Earlier this month police divers searched part of the Murray River about 20 kilometres downstream from Mannum while mounted patrols searched roads in the area, looking the woman’s phone and engagement ring.

At that time police also seized CCTV footage believed to show a person accessing the missing woman’s bank account at a local ATM.

On Thursday they arrested a 55-year-old woman, also from Mannum, and charged her with theft over allegedly withdrawing money from Ms Meyers’ account.

The woman was bailed to appear in the Murray Bridge Magistrates Court on September 30.
