A Florida teen was reportedly found safe more than 1,000 miles from her home following a lengthy search for her and her 27-year-old soccer coach.

Hunter said Rodriguez faces possible criminal charges of interference with child custody and could face further charges depending on what the investigation yields. The officer pulled the vehicle over and took Rodriguez into custody without incident, the sheriff's office said. It's believed she had left voluntarily with him. First Coast News was told he was sacked for not showing up to work. According to authorities in Florida, the teen left her home on her own and left her cell phone after wiping the device clean.

Frisina and Rodriguez were spotted on cameras in Georgia on Sunday and then at a pawn shop in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Rodriguez and the teen had been around each other "at sports events, but they've never been alone at all", Smith said.
