Florida soccer coach 'influenced' missing teen, will be extradited to Florida

Florida soccer coach 'influenced' missing teen, will be extradited to Florida

The assistant boys' soccer coach at Fort White High School was found in Syracuse with 17-year-old Caitlyn Frisina in the passenger seat of his vehicle.

The lawyer for a 27-year-old soccer coach accused of running away with a teenage girl says his client wants to return to Florida from NY as soon as possible to face charges. Only on "CBS This Morning", Meg Oliver spoke with Frisina's parents after the reunion.

Frisina asked for privacy for her family as they continue that healing process, adding that they are looking forward to "a very merry Christmas and an extremely bright future for Caitlyn".

Rodriguez's attorney says his client wants to return to Florida as soon as possible to face the charge of interfering with child custody. Police said they found footprints outside of the teen's home, and she appears to have left through a window. The Columbia County Sheriff's Office in Florida says the girl, who had been missing since Saturday, was detained, and Rodriguez was taken into custody. He said Frisina has family in NY and Rodriguez has family in Canada and possibly Pennsylvania.

Frisina's friend told police that the teen had cold feet about trip but didn't know how to handle it.

The soccer coach is being held at Onondaga County Justice Center, the extradition hearing scheduled for Monday.

"It's been hard. I'm glad to have my daughter back where I know I can protect her and keep her safe, as a father always wants to do", said Ward Frisina.

Police confirmed that the high school senior was with the boys' soccer coach, Rian Rodriguez.

According to a police affidavit, Caitlyn's friend told Scarlet that Caitlyn "hooked up with Rian and he worked his way into her life".

They expect Florida authorities to travel to NY to get Rodriguez this week.

"When she made contact with her parents, she was very relieved that her parents knew she was well", Smith said.

"We had a very handsome, wonderful, very emotional reunion with her a little while ago and we are so thankful to have her back", she said.
