You have not provided enough information to answer the question.

Look at just the exponential (the only part of the expression that is a function of t). The exponent is -u t (s - 1 - y/u)

If s > y/u+1, the limit will exist for u>0 and be 0. But if this is not the case, the expression will have no limit
