Missing Florida teen found with soccer coach in Syracuse

An apartment building in Atlanta where U.S. marshals found a newborn in a basket inside a closet in an abandoned unit

Columbia County Sheriff's Office was searching for 17-year-old Caitlyn Frisina, who went missing with a high school soccer coach last Saturday.

. According to FOX 30 News in Jacksonville, Rodriguez has been taken into custody in the Syracuse area.

Frisina fled with 27-year-old Rian Rodriguez from her Florida hometown about a week ago, sending local and federal law enforcement into a massive search and prompting the girl's parents to make an emotional plea for her safe return.

The incident began Sunday when Frisina's parents reported her missing.

Frisina, 17, was believed to be headed north with Rian Rodriguez, 27, a boy's soccer coach at the Florida high school where Frisina is a student.

On Friday around 4 p.m. ET, a New York State Police officer in Syracuse spotted the vehicle the two were believed to have fled in, according to the Columbia County Sheriff's Office. It's believed she left voluntarily with him, authorities said earlier.




The 17-year-old, who played soccer at her Florida high school, may have been in a relationship with the assistant boys' soccer coach Rian Rodriguez, who was with Frisina in the auto when police intervened around 4 p.m. Friday. First Coast News was told he was sacked for not showing up to work.

Rodriguez is now being held in a NY jail and faces a charge of interfering with the custody of a minor. The officer reportedly detained Rodriguez without incident.

Frisina and Rodriguez were spotted on cameras in Georgia on Sunday and then at a pawn shop in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Frisina told police that she left with Rian willingly and she was unharmed.

Officials at Fort White High School have suspended Rodriguez.
