Police believe she may be with Kevin Esterly, 45, with whom she allegedly had a secretive relationship, according to Allentown (Pennsylvania) police.

The two went missing March 5th (2 weeks ago), shortly after authorities were notified the pair might have been involved in a romantic relationship.

School records show Esterly signed Amy Yu out of school ten times between Nov. 13 and Feb. 9. Police say Amy had changed school documents to list him as her stepfather.

In a criminal complaint filed with the department, Esterly's wife said he withdrew $4,000 from her bank account and that his car and personal documents were gone.

Yu’s family said that she met Esterly at church.

Yu is about 4 feet 11 inches tall and 90 pounds, while Esterly is 5 feet 9 inches tall and 185 pounds, according to police.

Authorities believe they may be driving a 1999 red, two-door Honda Accord with the Pennsylvania plate KLT 0529.
