Police confirmed that on Wednesday, Dawson was taken arrested at his house in Coolum on the Gold Coast.
Dressed in a t-shirt, shorts and thongs, the 70-year-old was led off the plane by detectives and driven from the tarmac straight to Sydney Police Centre in Surry Hills, where he was charged.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said Ms Dawson's family was relieved after being told of the arrest.
"We won't give up on trying to identify the whereabouts of Lynette Dawson, but, from our perspective, it is not crucial to finalising the matter".
Commissioner Fuller said fresh information from witnesses this week provided a breakthrough in the case.
"They were predominantly statements from witnesses that helped us tie pieces of the puzzle together", he said.
A spokesman for Chris Dawson's family said they are "disappointed" in yesterday's explosive developments, and claimed there was "clear and uncontested" evidence Lyn was alive long after she disappeared.
