Caitlyn Frisina left and Rian Rodriguez right

According to Murray Smith, the public relations officer for the Columbia County Sheriff's Office, the police believed that there was the "blossoming of a potential relationship", between Frisina and Rodriguez, ABC News reported.

The officer stopped the vehicle in Syracuse, New York.

Frisina took $200 out of an ATM in St. Marys, Georgia, on Sunday morning, and was later that day seen with Rodriguez on surveillance video at a Pilot gas station in St. George, Georgia, Sheriff Mark Hunter said Wednesday.

Rodriguez was initially detained on a warrant for interference with child custody.

Frisina's family has been notified.

The Columbia County Sheriff's Office confirmed a missing teenager who is believed to have ran away with a soccer coach was found safe on Friday.

Scarlet Frisina, the teen's mother told CBS News on Friday, "I know that she to some degree left on her own".

It wasnt immediately clear if Rodriguez has a lawyer.

The 17-year-old climbed out her bedroom window on Saturday night and left behind her cell phone, which had been wiped clean of data. Security camera footage from a Fayetteville pawn shop appears to show Caitlyn. As of Friday, the teen was being held in police custody until a reunion with her family could be arranged.

Rodriguez had been working as a boys soccer coach at Fort White High School, but was suspended pending the investigation, according to a statement from Columbia County Schools Superintendent Lex Carswell.
