Missing Florida teen believed to have run away with 27-year-old soccer coach

A 17-year-old high school student who was last seen leaving her Florida home on Saturday night is believed to have run away with her soccer coach, according to police.

Columbia County officials say Caitlyn Frisina wiped all the data from her cell phone before leaving her home on Nov. 25, the last time her family says they saw her.

According to WJAX, deputies believe Frisina ran away with Rian Rodriguez, her 27-year-old soccer coach, and that the two are traveling in a red Mercury Sable.

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

Frisina's mother, Scarlet Parnell Frisina, took to Facebook on Sunday to share a heartbreaking plea for her daughter's safe return. 

"Caitlyn Morgan, Punkin, Daddy and I want you to know how very much we love you and miss you!" she wrote. "We’re not sure why you chose to go, but know that all we care about is knowing whether or not you’re safe!!"

"We can work out any issues. We're here with open arms praying for your safety! Please let us know that you're ok," she continued. "Day or night, no matter what; no judgment, no anger...just know we're here and we love you more than you can imagine!"

Rodriguez was the head boys' soccer coach with the Columbia County School District but was also affiliated with Frisina's team. 

The district released a statement following the pair's disappearance stating that Rodriguez has been suspended from his position at Fort White High School pending an investigation.
