I have found it in a manga in a situation that there is a news reporter asking the following sentence to a boy whom the reporter thought that he is living in a ruin building with a group of little kids.

ここにいる少年たちは みんな きみをしたって きたというが ほんとうですか?



There is a transitive verb 慕【した】う which means to yearn for.

    Just to add my opinion, "adore" or "look up to" would probably be a better translation.
