The remains of a deceased person found by the Royal Malaysian Navy while searching for a missing USS John S. McCain sailor are not a match, Malaysian media reported.
The determination was made after medical examiners inspected the discovered remains.
Multinational efforts involving Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Australia are ongoing at a 900 square nautical miles site at the initial location of the collision.
4 of the injured soldiers from USS John S. McCain were conveyed to hospital and discharged yesterday to return to command.
Investigations are ongoing.
