State police investigator Todd Grant tells the Syracuse Post-Standard he spotted Rian Rodriguez's auto Friday after Rodriguez left an employee orientation at a direct marketing firm in suburban Syracuse. Police say Rodriguez had spent childhood vacations in the area. According to the friend, Caitlyn said the two were planning to leave and she (Caitlyn) didn't know how to get out of going. "I'm glad to have my daughter back where I know I can protect her [and] keep her safe as a father always wants to do". It wasn't immediately clear what criminal charges he would face.

"Ward and I and Caitlyn are very exhausted, worn out, in fact, physically and emotionally, and we feel that: she's home, she's OK, we're seeking counseling to help us work through things", Frisina's mother Scarlet Frisina told ABC News.

Ryan McManus, owner of Prime Time Marketing, told the Post-Standard that Rodriguez said he was moving from Florida and was living in a hotel. That was the teen's last known location, Smith said.

Her mother, Scarlet, told reporters Saturday afternoon they were very happy to have their daughter back.
