U.S. and Mexican authorities were scouring the seas Monday for eight people -- seven of them Americans -- missing more than a day after their tourist boat capsized off the east coast of Mexico's Baja California peninsula, an official said. At least one of the 44 people who were aboard the fishing boat was dead.
The U.S. Coast Guard sent a helicopter Monday to assist the Mexican navy in the effort, said Petty Officer 2nd Class Henry Dunphy, a spokesman for the Coast Guard in San Diego, citing the Mexican navy.
