UPDATE: The bodies of sailors who were missing following the collision between the USS Fitzgerald and a container ship early Saturday have been found aboard the damaged destroyer. The U.S. Navy released a statement Sunday morning saying search and rescue workers discovered the bodies when they gained access to the flooded berthing compartments on the ship. The remains are being transferred to Naval Hospital Yokosuka, where they will be identified. The Navy will release the names of the sailors after families are notified.
