Missing Florida teen found safe in NY, officials say

Missing Florida teen found safe in NY, officials say

The 17-year-old girl was believed to be with Rian Rodriguez, a 27-year-old soccer coach at Fort White High School in Lake City, Fla., police said.

A Florida teen who went missing almost a week ago with a soccer coach has been found in NY, law enforcement officials said Friday.

The 2001 red Mercury Sable in which she was riding was spotted by a New York State Police officer who initiated a traffic stop.

Sheriff Mark Hunter didn't detail the relationship between Frisina and Rodriguez and said his primary focus was to bring the teen home safely.

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

The incident began Sunday when Frisina's parents reported her missing. It's believed she left voluntarily with him, authorities said earlier.

Her mother Scarlett Parnell Frisina wrote on Facebook, "Our Caitlyn is safe & we're headed to get her!"

Frisina and Rodriguez were spotted on cameras in Georgia on Sunday and then at a pawn shop in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

"We had a very lovely, wonderful, very emotional reunion with her a little while ago", the teen's mother, Scarlet Frisina, told reporters at a news conference Saturday afternoon.

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

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. Authorities say she apparently sneaked out of her bedroom window and had been missing since Saturday. First Coast News was told he was sacked for not showing up to work.
