Missing Florida teen found safe in NY

Missing Florida teen found safe in NY

Caitlyn Frisina, 17, was located in upstate NY with Rian Rodriguez, 27, a family friend and Frisina's father's assistant soccer coach at the high school, authorities said.

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

The Columbia County Sheriff's Office now says Caitlyn was found safe this afternoon, but did not immediately provide more information. Frisina has family in NY and Rodriguez has family in Canada and possibly Pennsylvania, Murray Smith, public information officer for the Columbia County Sheriff's Office, said.

Caitlyn Frisina, 17, was believed to be heading north with Rian Rodriguez, a 27-year-old soccer coach after they were spotted at a pawn shop in Syracuse on Sunday.

According to Fox News, Frisina's father said that Rodriguez was a family friend and there were no indications that his daughter would leave with him.




Rian Rodriguez, 27, was taken into custody without incident.

According to a missing persons report, Frisina left her home through her bedroom window, taking some clothes and her wallet but leaving her cellphone, which had been erased of data.

On Friday, after Hunter relayed the news to her parents that the teen had been found, he told CBS, "That was one of the best phone calls that I've made in my career".

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

Officials at Fort White High School have suspended Rodriguez.
