The USS Ketchikan is being towed back to port after being washed ashore in Panama.
The U.S. Coast Guard says the USS Kettleikan sank Friday evening near the northern town of Quezon City after its anchor was damaged.
The vessel is believed to have been anchored near the town of Panchigal in Panama’s northern Bay of Bengal.
The Coast Guard said the vessel was towed in a small boat to the port of San Juan de Tepic.
The ship was not damaged and was being towed to the U.N. headquarters in the city of Guam for further examination.
