Police believe a missing teen girl from Florida may have been abducted by the coach of her high school’s boys soccer team.
WPTV reports that Caitlyn Frisina, 17, is believed to have left her home in Columbia County on Saturday night, though her parents reportedly did not notice she was gone until Sunday morning. Authorities believe she may have willingly left with Rian Rodriguez, 27. Rodriguez is reportedly the head coach of the boy’s soccer team at Fort White High School, where Frisina is a student.

Columbia County deputies told CBS 47 that Frisina left her cell phone behind, but deleted all of the data on the phone. On Sunday, the missing girl reportedly withdrew $200 cash from an ATM in St. Marys, Georgia.
Authorities told WBTV that Frisina and Rodriguez may be traveling in a red Mercury Sable with Florida tag number Z04CSC.
Anyone with information about the missing teen is urged to call the Columbia County Sheriff department at 386-719-2005.
