Database to multi-language website doesn't have user but log in possible with the user

I have a rather peculiar problem. The web-developer before me run away for some reason and we cannot get ahold of him for the admin password.

Luckily we have access to the database according to some of my remote colleagues. I can login to it. I have a administrator username and password that lets me login to the admin panels of the websites but I cannot find that administrator user in the database in the #_users table of those same websites.

So is it possible to have the users stored in a different table other than the #_users one? Or I just have access to another database that doesn't have anything to do with the websites?

I am new to Joomla! and I am using -v 3.6.5
