Search For Missing Football Players Cost Over $1.6 Million

March 10, 2009

Flordia (ChattahBox) – A tally released by the U.S. Coast Guard shows that nearly $1.6 million dollars were spent by the agency in the search for missing football players Corey Smith and Marquis Cooper.

There were also unknown expenses from other local agencies, such as the U.S. Air Force, and the country police department.

Out of the four missing men, only one was found, and the other have been presumed dead. The search was called off last week after an extensive combing of the ocean, once the four men went missing during a fishing trip off of the Gulf of Mexico.  The coast guard rightfully made every effort as they always do to resuce the men,  but it was like finding a needle in a hay stack hence the large expense. The lesson in this is if the boat had been equipped with an automatic emergency locator beacon the outcome might have been much happier.
