Remains of missing sailors had been located as of Tuesday, Aug. 22, though it was not clear who or how numerous missing sailors were found, according to a report from The New York Times.

Divers found "some remains" of fallen sailors inside the destroyer, Adm. Scott Swift explained at a press conference Tuesday at the Changi Naval Base in Singapore, where the USS John S. McCain is now moored.

He also said the Malaysian navy found a body that could be one of the missing.

"It is a brutal reminder that what we do is risky work in an unforgiving environment, requiring honed skills and constant vigilance", he said.

The US Navy on Tuesday found remains of missing sailors inside sealed sections of the damaged hull of the John S. McCain, which is moored at Singapore's Changi Naval Base.

The oil tanker involved in Monday's collision sustained some damage but no crew were injured, the Singapore government said.

Earlier on Thursday, the US Navy reported that five injured sailors of the warship have been discharged from hospital to return to the command.

The destroyer collided with an oil tanker Alnic MC in waters off the eastern side of Singapore on Monday morning.

Navy and Marine divers were still searching the flooded compartments on the guided-missile destroyer, which is now docked in Singapore. "The United States Navy will fully investigate the cause of this incident and I ask all of you to keep the families of John S. McCain in your thoughts and prayers as we begin the task of answering the many questions before us".

Navy officials are now investigating the role that training, manning and other internal fleet processes may have played in the deadly collisions, and have imposed a rare operational pause following the accidents.

Yesterday US military divers located the remains of some of the 10 sailors.
