Married Dad Arrested in Mexico After Going Missing with Teen Girl

A 16-year-old who disappeared with a 45-year-old "family friend" has been found in Mexico and the man has been arrested, police said.

According to the Allentown Police Department, both Yu and Esterly will be escorted back to the United States to Miami Florida by Homeland Security Investigations agents and United States Marshall Service deputies.

Police say Yu was found in good health and is believed to have went to Mexico willingly.

Police say the girl and her "secret boyfriend", Kevin Esterly, covertly ran away to the resort town of Playa del Carmen together this month. Police say they developed a 'secretive relationship'.

Police issued a missing person alert and filed a warrant for Esterly's arrest.

The Morning Call reports that Yu has been returned to her family in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

February 2018: By now, Kevin Esterly, 45, who has a family home in Lowhill Township, has rented an apartment near 14th and Hamilton streets in Allentown, less than four blocks from 16-year-old Amy Yu's home. Yu may have added Esterly to her school emergency contact so he could check her out of school. Luu reports her daughter missing to the Allentown Police Department.

"For two weeks, I've had trouble sleeping and eating", Luu told The Morning Call. Once there, arrangements will be made for Yu to be returned to Allentown and to her mother. She also says Esterly's daughter "is a friend and just one year younger than Amy". "She wants Amy home with her mom, that is what she has always wanted".

A passenger on a Cancun-bound flight told CNN he was "close to 100% certain" he saw Esterly and Amy boarding the plane with him at Philadelphia International Airport on March 5.

Esterly had also vanished, along with $4,000 he had withdrawn from his wife's bank account.

Amy was last seen by her brother, John, who said she fled after being dropped off with him by their mother at their school bus stop. "Stacey did not believe it to be merely a father-daughter relationship and that's why there were fights". Police told the Esterlys to leave the family's home and never come back.

Esterly and Amy had been missing since March 5.

When the alarming pattern was detected in February, Esterly was barred from school grounds and a series of disagreements allegedly arose between Yu's mother, Esterly and his wife.

It is not clear if she found them before or after they went missing together.
