    A man authorities said frequently checked a teenager out of school without her parents' knowledge and fled to Mexico with her is being held on $500,000 bail.

    Court documents indicate that 45-year-old Kevin Esterly was arraigned early Sunday on a felony charge of interference with the custody of a child.

    The Lehigh County district attorney's office said Esterly arrived Saturday in Allentown after being extradited from Miami, Florida.

    Federal agents and Mexican authorities found the married father of four and a 16-year-old girl in Playa del Carmen a week ago and flew them to Miami. They had been missing since March 5.

    A preliminary hearing is scheduled April 2. The county public defender's office, listed as representing Esterly, couldn't be reached for comment.
