Peace River K-9 Search and Rescue says this effort so far has likely cost between $500k and $1M, " he tweeted. The tweet further said, "The President of the group says normally crews scale back after two days." …unless they find evidence of the person they’re looking for. The @SarasotaSheriff says: We are not keeping track of any cost right now, specifically. As of now, we have responded to a request for mutual aid."

'Laundries should cover ALL costs'

Internet erupted in fury as people raised objections over how much the search for Brian Laundrie is costing. One person tweeted, "How much would it have cost them to stake out the house and the neighboring streets for a few days instead - before he went missing?" Another wrote, "how much has this search cost the City of North Port to date? And will the city consider legal action in the future to recover at least some of those expenses from the Laundries? #BrianLaundrie" One person emphasised that the Laundrie family should bear the cost of the search and tweeted, "The Laundrie’s live in a $120,000 home and they appear to have some assets (F150, small camper, base model Ford Mustang, etc.). I can’t confirm this, but the Laundrie’s likely couldn’t afford one day of this search, let alone days/weeks. That said, they should cover ALL costs!"
