SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a 27-year-old Florida soccer coach found in New York with a missing teenage girl has been arrested.

The Post Standard reports police are holding Rian Rodriguez on a charge from Florida known as interference with child custody. He has a hearing Monday to determine if he’ll been extradited.

Officials say Rodriguez and the 17-year-old student,Caitlyn Frisina, were stopped by a New York State Police officer Friday afternoon near Syracuse. Authorities say she apparently sneaked out of her bedroom window and had been missing since last Saturday. State police say the pair was in the area since Sunday.

The girl has been reunited with her family.

Officials at Fort White High School suspended Rodriguez, who coached the boys’ soccer team at the north Florida school.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Rodriguez has a lawyer.
