Missing Florida teen found in NY; soccer coach arrested

As CrimeOnline previously reported, 17-year-old Caitlyn Frisina was reported missing from her Lake City home nearly a week ago and was believed to have left with Rian Rodriguez.

The Gainesville Sun reported that the girl and Rian Rodriguez were stopped by a New York State Police officer Friday afternoon in Syracuse.

Police previously said he could face criminal charges for interfering with child custody.

Frisina's parents say he's also a family friend.

The sheriff's office did not immediately provide details on the circumstances surrounding the girl being found.

Frasina was found in North Syracuse, over 1,000 miles from Lake City.

The 17-year-old climbed out her bedroom window on Saturday night and left behind her cell phone, which had been wiped clean of data.

The aunt of a 17-year-old girl who fled with a 27-year-old man from Florida shared a photo of the family reunited after a week-long, national search.

Scarlet Frisina, the teen's mother told CBS News on Friday, "I know that she to some degree left on her own".

Rodriguez had been working as a boys' soccer coach at Fort White High School, but was suspended pending the investigation, according to a statement from Lex Carswell, superintendent of Columbia County Schools.

"Video from the store showed Rian and Caitlyn, which confirmed to us they were together", Hunter said.

Authorities said earlier this week it appeared "a potential relationship" was blossoming between Frisina and Rodriguez before the teen's disappearance.
