Water pump failed badly, need info!

I have an 01 with 140k miles and my water pump started to fail when I was far from home. I was able to get pretty much home when the belt came off and the coolant dump began. Today I removed the pump and found most pf the impeller blades missing. I fished as much as I could with a magnet and only found a couple tiny bits.
Is there any way to get the majority of missing pieces out?
Could they be in the radiator?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,

Look in theromstat for debris. You could remove lower hose and try flushing. You could remove radiator and reverse flush it also.
The small shavings are not likely a problem if don't find by above procedures.
The final procedure would be remove filter housing and oil cooler. You can flush block then.
