At least 20 severely decomposed bodies have been found in a boat off the coast of northeastern Brazil, officials say.

The boat was found on the coast of Bragança, northeast of Pará, on April 13, the Brazilian Federal Public Ministry announced Sunday.

Two investigations have been since been opened.

Officials said at least 20 bodies had been found in the boat, but due to the decomposition of the remains it’s unknown how many died on the boat.

Local authorities say there have been no recent reports of missing Brazilians.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
