Frisina fled with 27-year-old Rian Rodriguez from her Florida hometown about a week ago, sending local and federal law enforcement into a massive search and prompting the girl's parents to make an emotional plea for her safe return.
It wasn't immediately clear whether she was found with Rodriguez. "More to follow as details come in", the Columbia County Sheriff's Office said in a tweet on Friday night.

The 17-year-old, who played soccer at her Florida high school, may have been in a relationship with the assistant boys' soccer coach Rian Rodriguez, who was with Frisina in the vehicle when police intervened around 4 p.m. Friday. Security camera footage from a Fayetteville pawn shop appears to show Caitlyn. But I absolutely believe that she was lied to and totally misled.
According to First Coast News, Rodriguez was a coach for the boys' soccer team at Fort White High School.
