CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - The girlfriend of one of two men who didn't return on time from a sailing trip says she's heard from them and that they're safe.
Tara Bajkowski tells KHOU-TV that Patrick Holden called her around 4 a.m. to say that they were returning to the Port Aransas marina, where they left Saturday night for what was to be a two-day trip.
Bajkowski is the girlfriend of Holden's cousin, Joe Squibb.
The Coast Guard was conducting a search Monday and early Tuesday for the 27-year-old Holden and 26-year-old Squibb, who had gone sailing on a 25-foot sailboat.
Holden's wife called the Coast Guard early Monday morning after she did not hear from him at their expected arrival time in Galveston on Sunday night.
