Kevin Esterly and missing Allentown teen found in Mexico, officials say

Where is Amy Yu? She becomes close friends with the oldest of Esterly's four daughters. He gives Amy a ride and she returns home that day, police say.

Amy Yu age 16 and Kevin Esterly age 45, have been reported missing and could possibly be traveling together in a 1999 Red Honda Accord, 2 door bearing PA vehicle registration of KLT 0529. Luu learns that Amy has listed Esterly as her stepfather in school documents and, since November, Esterly has signed her out from the school 10 times without her mother's knowledge or permission, according to police and Luu.

Yu's mother said money, jewelry and her daughter's personal documents were missing, reports said. She instead went to the Philadelphia International Airport with Esterly, where he bought the one-way tickets, Lake said. A state trooper is dispatched to break up the fight, according to police.

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".

Lake said Yu was dropped off at a school bus stop March 5, but never boarded the bus to her charter school.

Her mother, Mui Luu, said she feels betrayed. On the same day, Esterly withdrew $4,000 from his wife's bank account. She also pleaded with the teen to come home.

Esterly will be turned over to the Miami Police Department.

VAR to be used at Russian Federation , says FIFA president Gianni Infantino
One of the problems that dogs VAR , say its critics, is not the accuracy of its decisions but the time it takes to arrive at them. Infantino said VAR evidently has shown that it reduces human error in the game and it makes football a more transparent sport.

Esterly is charged with custodial interference, a third degree felony. Esterly had a "secretive relationship" with the 16-year-old, police say in the filing.

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

It was capped by the Mexican government issuing a March 15 Amber Alert.

"They know or planned to do this", John Yu said. They will be returned to the U.S.
