(STOCKTON, Calif.) — A teenage girl is in a “romantic relationship” with a Northern California high school wrestling coach, and both are now missing, according to authorities.

The unnamed 16-year-old, who was reported missing on Aug. 22, is believed to be with 25-year-old Phillip Maglaya, a wrestling coach at Franklin High School in Stockton, Calif., the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office said Saturday.

The two were “in a romantic relationship,” the sheriff’s office said.
