Missing Pennsylvania teen believed to be in Mexico

Police: Missing Allentown Teen, 45-Year-Old Man Located In Mexico

Police say a missing Pennsylvania teenager traveled to Mexico with a 45-year-old man, and they encouraged her Friday to return home to her family.

The alert says the search continues for 16-year-old Amy Yu, who was last seen by her family at a bus stop in Allentown.

Lake also said despite believing initially that Yu boarded her bus to Lee High Valley Academy Regional Charter School on the morning of March 5, that was not the case: "Through investigation, it was subsequently learned that Amy had never boarded her bus that morning". Yu had listed Esterly as her stepfather on school records, according to authorities.

Yu is about 4 feet, 11 inches tall and 90 pounds, while Esterly is 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 185 pounds, according to police.

Sixteen-year-old Amy Yu, who was reported missing last Monday when she left school on her own volition, is still missing as of March 15.

While Yu is 16, the minimum age of consent in Pennsylvania, authorities have charged Esterly with interfering with the custody of children and have put out a warrant for his arrest. Allentown police Capt. Bill Lake said Yu left the country willing with Kevin Esterly.

"From the investigations, it's determined that she might be traveling in national territory accompanied by ESTERLY, KEVIN MICHAEL", the Amber Alert read. Amy's family previously said the two met at church years ago, and Amy is friends with one of Esterly's daughters.

Lake asked the media to spread a message so that it might reach the missing girl. She also pleaded with the teen to come home.

In a group text that day, which included Luu and Esterly's wife, Esterly called the allegation of any improper relationship with the girl "lies and speculation".

While splitting time with his family, Esterly also rented an apartment in Allentown, about four blocks from Yu's family's home.

Esterly's wife told investigators he withdrew about $4,000 from his wife's bank account that same day.

Waldron said Stacey Esterly feels betrayed by her husband, but her children, particularly the younger ones, miss their father.

"I want to tell her, 'Amy, can you come back to me? But I want them to catch the guy and bring her back", Miu Luu told ABC.
