Guards of a factory in the north-central Vietnamese province Nghe An detected parts of a human skeleton wearing a life jacket on a local beach on Friday.
Police of the province's Nghi Loc District on Saturday announced that they were looking for tips on the identity of the skeleton, which was found at the Vissai International Port by security guards of the nearby Song Lam Cement Plant.
The group of guards discovered a human skull, several bones, an orange life vest draping over more bones and joints, and a black fold wallet carrying two notes of VND1,000 and VND2,000.
As the flesh of the body had mostly decomposed, the identity of the victim has yet to be found.
After performing an autopsy, local officials properly buried the remains.
