Missing Florida teen found safe in NY, officials say

Missing Florida teen found safe in NY, officials say

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


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.

The pair was spotted at 4 p.m. Friday by a State Police investigator, Todd Grant, who recognized Rodriguez's red Mercury sedan and its Florida license plates.

Frisina took $200 out of an ATM in St. Marys, Georgia, on Sunday morning, and was later that day seen with Rodriguez on surveillance video at a Pilot gas station in St. George, Georgia, Sheriff Mark Hunter said Wednesday.

Rodriguez could face criminal charges, according to reports, and was arrested on a warrant issued for interfering with child custody.

Marcy Frisina, the aunt of Caitllyn Frisina, shared a photo on Facebook of the family embracing. The Columbia County Sheriff's Office will hold a press conference on Monday, at 2pm with additional details.

It was not immediately clear if Frisina was with Rodriguez when she was located. "But I absolutely believe that she was lied to and totally misled", her mother, Scarlet Frisina, told CBS News, earlier on Friday.

There was no word when the family will return to Lake City. They said Frisina left her home on her own and left her phone, which she fully erased.

Officials at Fort White High School have suspended Rodriguez.
