An Amber Alert has been issued in Mexico for the Lehigh Valley teenager who has been missing for nearly two weeks.
Amy Yu, 16, of Allentown, is believed to have run away with 45-year-old Kevin Esterly, a friend of the family.
The posting, on Alerta Amber Mexico, solicits help in finding the adolescent. It was posted Thursday afternoon.
Allentown police issued a missing person alert March 7 for Esterly and Yu. Police issued a warrant for Esterly’s arrest alleging interference with the custody of a child.
Police said they believe Esterly and Yu formed a secret relationship after meeting at church and then ran off together.
Yu disappeared from her Allentown bus stop on March 5.
School records show Esterly signed Amy out of school 10 times between Nov. 13 and Feb. 9 without her parents’ permission, police said.
