Almost two weeks after a 16-year-old Pennsylvania girl vanished with a 45-year-old man, the pair was found Saturday in Mexico and the man was arrested, authorities say.
After Castrovinci landed, he recognized Yu and Esterly from a TV news report and contacted authorities.
The U.S. Marshals Service says Esterly is being brought back to Pennsylvania to face charges.
Mui Luu, the girl's mother, said last week she discovered the alleged romantic relationship Esterly and her daughter when she found suggestive text messages on Yu's cellphone.

Agents from Homeland Security, the United States Marshals Service and Mexican authorities located Amy Yu and Kevin Esterly on March 17, at about 10:30 a.m. (EDT) in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico. The man she was traveling with was taken into custody. Yu is on her way out of town with her nicest clothes and some of her mother's money and jewelry, according to her mother.
February 10: At Esterly's Lowhill Township home, he snatches his wife's "cellphone away from her to prevent her from viewing his Facebook posts", and she rips his shirt as she tries to stop him from leaving the house, police say.
Amy Yu, daughter of Miu Luu in Allentown, meets Kevin Esterly, his wife, Stacey, and their family at a church in Lowhill Township, western Lehigh County, according to both families.
Frank Castrovinci told CNN that he observed the pair together and initially thought Yu was Esterly's adopted daughter, before he saw them interacting.
Esterly reportedly checked Yu out of Lehigh Valley Academy Charter School nine times between November 2017 and February of this year. Through a lawyer, Stacey Esterly said she and her husband have been fighting constantly since the summer over his apparent relationship with Amy. "She is glad that Amy is safe and that Kevin is with authorities". She said she cried from relief upon hearing the news that her daughter was found.
