Remains of some of the Navy sailors who went missing after a collision between USS John S. McCain and a tanker near Singapore were found in a compartment aboard the destroyer, Commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet Adm. Scott Swift said Tuesday.
Swift said "some remains" were found in sealed compartments during their search on Tuesday and Malaysian officials said they found one body, but were still in the process of identifying it.
"We will continue the search and rescue operations until the probability of discovering sailors is exhausted," Swift said, adding that it was "premature to say how many" bodies were discovered at this time.
"We are in the process of gaining possession of those remains [from Malaysia], so we are in the process of identifying," Swift said.
