Parents of Florida runaway teen open up about reunion

Florida teenager Caitlyn Frisina was reunited with her parents Ward and Scarlet. FAMILY

Rodriguez, a soccer coach at Caitlyn Frisina's high school, is being held in the Onondaga County Justice Center. She said she "didn't know how to get out of it" and feared "he would mess up her life", according to police.

Authorities say a 27-year-old Florida soccer coach found in NY with a missing teenage girl has been arrested.

Frisina's parents also discovered messages on Snapchat of a sexual nature between the teen and Rodriguez after her disappearance, according to the news station citing the affidavit. Her parents flew to Syracuse to get her Saturday.

Columbia County Sheriff Mark Hunter said during Monday's news conference that he feels Frisina was "influenced" by Rodriguez.

Firing broke out at the hostel after three to five burqa-clad suspects entered the building, Geo news reported . The assault came a week after a suicide bomb attack killed a senior police officer and his guard in the area.

Ward Frisina found Caitlyn's cellphone in her bedroom and a factory reset had been performed on it.

Frisina has played soccer at Fort White High School, according to an online roster published by Next College Student Athlete. Police say Rodriguez had spent childhood vacations in the area.

State police investigator Todd Grant told the Syracuse Post-Standard he spotted Rodriguez's vehicle, a red Mercury Sable, on Friday after Rodriguez left an employee orientation at a Salina direct marketing firm.

The teenager did not speak to reporters, but her mother Scarlet expressed joy in having her daughter home.

Offensively, Georgia football averages 34.9 points and 433.6 total yards (170.1 in passing and 263.5 in rushing) per game. That's the third-longest active streak in the nation, trailing only Florida State (36) and Virginia Tech (25).

Rodriguez faces a felony charge in Florida of interfering with child custody and he could face additional federal charges for taking Frisina across state lines.

"It's been hard", her father, Ward Frisina, said.

A friend of Caitlyn's said the 17-year-old soccer player was in a relationship with Rodriguez, who she took off with a little less than a week before she was found, but that she did not want to leave the country with him and didn't know what to do, according to court documents.

Frisina's parents told police they had "no indicators" of "any type of relationship between these two", Murray Smith, public information officer for the Columbia County Sheriff's Office, told ABC News this week. "His comment to us was 'just like Florida there's a lot of friendly people here, ' and he felt Syracuse was a lot like Florida and he could find some time to spend here", said New York State Trooper Jack Keller.
