Authorities discovered human remains in the Strasbourg dock in Antwerp on Sunday.
The police went to the scene after they received a call from somebody who had seen something floating in the water of the dock.
The fire brigade also went to the scene. They collected the remains from the water and brought them ashore.
The identity of the remains are not yet clear.
“The public prosecutor has appointed a doctor who will investigate the situation on Monday and try to identify the remains,” a spokesperson for the Antwerp police Willem Migom explained, reports VRT.
