Missing Allentown Teen Found in Mexico

Kevin Esterly and Amy Yu were both taken into custody Saturday, according to Allentown police.

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. "Amy is unharmed and in good health.", states a release from Allentown police.

The arrest came two days after Mexican authorities issued an Amber Alert for Yu, which stated that she could in danger.

Yu willingly ran with Esterly, according to reports.

Her mother, Mui Luu, said she feels betrayed.

CNN has reached out to Mexico's attorney general and the federal police for comment, but has not heard back. Once back in the United States, arrangements will be made to get Amy back to Allentown to be reunited with her mother.

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.

School records show Esterly signed Yu out of school 10 times between November 13 and February 9. The mother also discovers that Esterly had signed out her daughter from school at least 10 times. But Mauser said she couldn't elaborate, citing privacy concerns. Esterly's wife told police officers that she saw him that morning for the last time.

'The mom explained she is a single mother, ' Hammer told ABC News.

"It seemed odd the way she was leaning up against him and how he was rubbing her leg and it seemed like his hand was quivering a little bit", he said. "She is glad that Amy is safe and that Kevin is with authorities".

Mauser said the school is working closely with both Allentown police and the Colonial Regional Police Department, which has jurisdiction of the area where the school is located. Lake said authorities have received numerous tips as a result of media attention and asked the public to call in if they have any information.

Esterly was subsequently warned to stay away from the teen.

Where is Amy Yu? "My neighbors were there and my friends were there".

It is not clear if she found them before or after they went missing together. They have even had Esterly over for dinner.

February 15: Allentown police are dispatched to Amy Yu's house in a tense confrontation that put Yu, her mother, Esterly and his wife in the same room, police say. "This has been an ordeal for this family", Waldron said.

Esterly and Amy had been missing since March 5.

"They know or planned to do this", John Yu said. "I never thought he would act like that".

It was during the flight that Castrovinci says he observed, through their body actions, that they weren't family.
