Terri Lynn Esterak was supposed to return her three young daughters to her ex-husband at the end of the weekend. Because she did not have primary custody, she was supposed to return them Sunday night to their father, Michael Esterak. After that, her time with her daughters was to be structured by a calendar: only on alternate weekends, alternate holidays, and Christmas and Easter. It was a court order she apparently couldn't accept.
