The Navy has suspended its search for the remaining missing USS John S. McCain sailors, 80 hours after the guided-missile destroyer collided with an oil tanker east of Singapore on Monday.
Ten sailors were initially missing after the collision, and five more were hurt. The Navy has since recovered the remains of Electronics Technician 3rd Class Kenneth Aaron Smith, 22, from New Jersey, aboard the ship.
While ships from several nearby nations are no longer searching the waters east of Singapore where the collision occurred, divers are still searching flooded spaces inside the ship as it sits moored to the pier at Changi Naval Base in Singapore. According to 7th Fleet, the remaining missing nine sailors still missing are:
- Electronics Technician 1st Class Charles Nathan Findley, 31, from Missouri
- Interior Communications Electrician 1st Class Abraham Lopez, 39, from Texas
- Electronics Technician 2nd Class Kevin Sayer Bushell, 26, from Maryland
- Electronics Technician 2nd Class Jacob Daniel Drake, 21, from Ohio
- Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Timothy Thomas Eckels Jr., 23, from Maryland
- Information Systems Technician 2nd Class Corey George Ingram, 28, from New York
- Electronics Technician 3rd Class Dustin Louis Doyon, 26, from Connecticut
- Electronics Technician 3rd Class John Henry Hoagland III, 20, from Texas
- Interior Communications Electrician 3rd Class Logan Stephen Palmer, 23, from Illinois.
Investigators are still determining the cause of the accident and the House Armed Services Committee has called a Sept. 7 hearing to discuss readiness issues in the fleet.
