Steve Sloneker, 65, left, of Sonora, and fellow fisherman Ross Anderson, 63, listen to a representative of the U.S. consulate, Thursday, after surviving the capsized fishing vessel, the Erik, in San Felipe, Mexico on Sunday.
Seven U.S. tourists are still missing four days after their boat capsized near this town as the Mexican navy and the U.S. Coast Guard expand their search in the Gulf of California.
Most of the 27 passengers on board the ship were Northern California men who traveled to the gulf for an annual Independence Day fishing trip.
