ALLENTOWN, Pa. - The man who allegedly ran off with an Allentown teen is back in the Lehigh Valley.

Kevin Esterly, 45, arrived back in Allentown today after being extradited from Miami, Florida.

Esterly was taken into custody in Miami March 18 after he and Amy Yu were captured in Mexico.

Police said Esterly and Yu developed a secret relationship over the past few months before they disappeared together March 5th.
