Caitlyn Frisina: Missing Florida teen may be with boys soccer coach

Police car

Police in Florida believe Caitlyn Frisina, 17, may have run off with her school soccer coach, 27-year-old Rian Rodriguez.

Caitlyn Frisina professedly wiped her telephone clean before she cleared out her Columbia County Home "voluntarily", the Columbia County Sheriff's Office said in a news discharge. His role of head boys soccer coach at Fort White High School has been suspended, pending an investigation. She left behind her cell phone but not before erasing all of the date from it. They're believed to be traveling in a red, 2001 Mercury Sable with the Florida license tag Z04CSC.

Frisina was last traced to an ATM in St. Mary's Georgia, where she withdrew $200.

Authorities are concerned for Frisina's safety because she is a minor and because there is a 10-year age gap between her and Rodriguez.

"By not showing up, he's absent without leave and we just felt like the best thing to do at this point was go ahead and terminate him and cut our ties with him", said Columbia County School Board Chairman Keith Hudson at a board meeting Tuesday.

"I do not have many words to say", Ward Fristina posted.

Anyone who spots Caitlyn Frisina, Rodriguez or the vehicle is asked to call 911.

Caitlyn's mother Scarlet told News4Jax that she wanted to make contact with her daughter. She has a big heart.

Egypt later said it would delay the opening of the Rafah border crossing to Gaza after the attack due to security concerns. The security officers said the men opened fire on worshipers during prayers while driving in off-road vehicles.

Officials believe Rodriguez and Frisina may be headed northeast to NY or Canada, ABC News reported.

Authorities appear to believe that Frisina and Rodriguez may be continuing to head north.

"We just have to assume that until we get her home, she is in danger", Captain Katina Dicks of the Columbia County Sheriff's Office told Action News Jacksonville.

They believe that she may be in the presence of 27-year-old Rian Rodriguez in a red Mercury Sable.

He wrote: "She left with only a few clothes".

The girl's friends say she met Rodriguez when he worked as a referee at her soccer games, before he worked at Fort White High School.

Columbia County deputies are expected to give an update on the search for Caitlyn Frisina at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Once investigators track down the pair, Action News Jax Law and Safety Expert Dale Carson said it could be hard to charge Rodriguez if Caitlyn went with him willingly and no other crimes were committed.
