Missing teen out of Columbia County located safe in NY

News outlets in Jacksonville reported that Rodriguez is the head boys' soccer coach at Fort White High School.

They said it's likely Caitlyn Frisina and Rian Rodriguez realize they are the focus of a nationwide search, and that they have connections in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey.

Investigators believe Caitlyn voluntarily left with Rodriguez after climbing through her bedroom window and walking to a nearby road, according to CCSO.

The 17-year-old girl who was believed to have fled her home with a soccer coach at her high school has been found safe, according to reports.

The mom said her daughter's disappearance was all the more puzzling since she has a steady boyfriend, and they even spent Thanksgiving together.

They were first seen in a gas station in Saint George, South Carolina.

Deputies said Caitlyn withdrew $200 from an ATM in Georgia earlier this week.

Among the missing, now presumed dead, is 35-year-old Eliana Maria Krawczyk, Argentina's first female submariner. Some hours later, an explosion was detected near the time and place where the San Juan was last heard from.

Rodriguez is suspended from his position at Fort White High School amid the investigation.

Frisina's parents say he's also a family friend. "That's our concern, and our concern of course is that we don't know she's OK".

There are now no criminal charges pending against Rodriguez, but he could be charged with interference with custody of a child.

The missing teen's father, Ward Frisina, told CBS affiliate WJAX that he helped Rodriguez get a job as his assistant soccer coach and had checked with him after the teen went missing, but he didn't pick up his phone.

Speaking Wednesday, the girl's mother begged her to call home.
