At noon, Mike went to his car at the Seal Beach parking lot. He headed toward San Pandro via Ocean Boulevard, stopping to make a phone call to Vern. Vern told him to turn south off Highway 47, after crossing the river, head south to 22nd street and back east to river. There the Crosby Leader would be, and it was. MV Crosby Leader was at Mike's Main Diesel Stop, right next to General Petroleum.
