The officer stopped the vehicle and found Rodriguez and Caitlyn safe.
Frisina said Friday before her daughter was found that Rodriguez was the only person who didn't answer when she and her husband were calling around trying to find Caitlyn Sunday morning.
According to reports, Frisina - who plays soccer at the Fort White High School, where Rodriguez is a coach for the boys' soccer team - left her house on Saturday night.
Frasina was found in North Syracuse, over 1,000 miles from Lake City.
In addition, Frasina's parents discovered sexual messages on Snapchat between her and Rodriguez after her disappearance.
Authorities say a missing Florida teenage girl and a 27-year-old soccer coach have been found in NY.
Caitliyn Frisina, the 17-year-old Florida girl who was missing for a week and believed to be with her soccer coach, has been found in NY and is safe, according to reports. According to FOX 30 News in Jacksonville, Rodriguez has been taken into custody in the Syracuse area. The FBI and U.S. Attorney's Office have been advised of this case and will consider federal charges in Florida.
The aunt of a 17-year-old girl who fled with a 27-year-old man from Florida shared a photo of the family reunited after a week-long, national search.
Frisina and Rodriguez were spotted on cameras in Georgia on Sunday and then at a pawn shop in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
The Columbia County Sheriff's Office contacted Rodriguez's cellphone service provider, obtained an exigent form and requested his phone be pinged.
Rodriguez and the teen had been around each other "at sports events, but they've never been alone at all", Smith said.
