JACKSON, Michigan -- Authorities say a new bride arrested in Michigan on a 3-year-old warrant and briefly jailed wearing her wedding dress has missed her day in court.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports 53-year-old Tammy Lee Hinton failed to appear in Jackson County District Court on Monday. The warrant was for felony identity theft charges.

Jon Johnston, the public safety director for Blackman-Leoni Township, says his department will try to locate her if another arrest warrant is issued. He did not immediately respond to phone message seeking comment Tuesday.

Police believe Hinton has been living in Florida. They received two tips that she would be in Michigan for Saturday's wedding. 

Police arrested Hinton Saturday shortly after she said "I do."  She was booked and released her after less than about 30 minutes.
