Amy Yu and Kevin Esterly timeline: Secrets, suspicions, then a flight

Amy Yu and Kevin Esterly timeline: Secrets, suspicions, then a flight

While missing Pennsylvania teenager Amy Yu was found safe over the weekend in Mexico with 45-year-old Kevin Esterly, whom she was allegedly having a romantic relationship with, the case stretches back farther than the 13 days she was missing.

She and Kevin Esterly, the man police say she willingly ran away with, were escorted to Miami by US Homeland Security Investigations agents and the US Marshals Service.

Amy's mother told CNN that texts she discovered on her daughter's phone made the teen and Esterly seem like girlfriend and boyfriend.

- Saturday: Authorities in Mexico find Yu and Esterly at the Playa del Carmen resort near Cancun and arrest Esterly on suspicion of child custody interference.

Even though the pair disappeared together on March 5, Esterly's wife Stacey's attorney, John Waldron, says Amy and Kevin had been in a relationship for some time, which the two families had tried to stop.

After Castrovinci landed, he recognized Yu and Esterly from a TV news report and contacted authorities.

Allentown Police Chief Glen Dorney stated, "Amy is unharmed and in good health" and that once Yu is back stateside she would be "reunited with her mother".

Yu reportedly knew Esterly, who is married, because the family attended the same church and Yu was friends with Esterly's daughter.

School records showed that Yu was signed out of school by Esterly, who was listed as her stepfather, 10 times between November 13 and February 9.

They had them over for dinner at least once and Yu's brother said it seemed the man wanted to help his sister.

Her mother, Mui Luu, said she feels betrayed. He gives Amy a ride and she returns home that day, police say.

February 9: Miu Luu, Amy Yu's mother, drives out in the afternoon to pick up her daughter at the Lehigh Valley Academy Charter School, but she's told Amy already has been picked up by Esterly, according to police and Luu. Yu's charter school has also banned him from school grounds since last month. "Stacey did not believe it to be merely a father-daughter relationship and that's why there were fights".

But during that time, investigators believe, Amy and Esterly were making plans to leave Allentown together.

Esterly had also vanished, along with $4,000 he had withdrawn from his wife's bank account.

Yu's mother then told the school that she's a single mother and school workers called police, Hammer said.

Kevin Esterly was angry, John Yu said, and denied his relationship with Amy.
