Missing Pennsylvania teen recovered, older suspect captured in Mexico

Missing person generic

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.

Agents from Homeland Security, the United States Marshals Service and Mexican authorities located Amy Yu and Kevin Esterly on March 17, at about 10:30 a.m. (EDT) in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico.

They bought one-way tickets from Philadelphia to Dallas and then headed to Cancun, police said.

July 2017: Esterly's wife, Stacey, and Yu's mother become increasingly uncomfortable with and eventually suspicious of Esterly's claims of a father-daughter relationship with Yu, according to Stacey Esterly's lawyer and Yu's mother.

On Feb. 9, Yu's mother went to pick the teen up from Lehigh Valley Academy Charter School and was told by school officials that Yu's stepfather signed her out earlier that day. An extradition process will begin once Esterly arrives in Miami, reports said.

The Allentown Morning Call reported U.S. and Mexican authorities found Kevin Esterly and 16-year-old Amy Yu in Playa del Carmen on Saturday. Yu may have added Esterly to her school emergency contact so he could check her out of school. Allentown police told the Esterlys to stay away from the teen's home when the responded to a call on February 15, according to court records.

Amy's mother said money, jewelry and her daughter's personal documents were missing, according to court documents, and Esterly's wife said $4,000 along with his personal documents were missing. Amy's mother said the texts read as though Amy was texting her boyfriend.

"Amy's been known to the family for like eight years", John Waldron, an attorney representing Kevin Esterly's wife, Stacey Esterly, reportedly told the news station.

Esterly was placed into custody by Mexican authorities. Her brother reportedly said she took off. Yu's family previously said the two met at church years ago, and the girl is friends with one of Esterly's daughters.

Esterly and Amy had been missing since March 5.

There was a secret, hidden aspect to the relationship between the teen and the middle-aged man.

Yu and Esterly had been flown to Miami on Saturday. Over the next few years, Amy accompanied Esterly's family on several beach and camping trips, becoming close to his oldest daughter - and, apparently, to him. "They were yelling about they think that Amy and Kevin are sleeping together and doing stupid stuff".

"They know or planned to do this", John Yu said.

The age of consent in Pennsylvania is 16, according to the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape.
