Human bones believed to belong to a missing Filipino worker have been found in a water purifying tank in a factory in Hwaseong in Gyeonggi province, South Korea.

Factory workers discovered the bones on Tuesday wrapped in a jacket while they were cleaning the water tank, The Korea Times reported.

According to police, the bones may belong to a Filipino worker who went missing in January 2016.

They believe the victim was a foreigner because the jacket found with them was a Southeast Asian brand not sold in Korea.

Police investigators said the left side of the skeleton was crushed. They suspect the victim may have been killed elsewhere and his body dumped in the water purifying tank.

They are now trying to contact the Filipino man’s family for a DNA test on the bones.
