Two men have been charged with murdering a man believed to be a former police officer who was found dead in a Melbourne factory.

The body was discovered at the Braeside factory on Friday morning after a man handed himself in to the Mordialloc police station.

A 45-year-old Braeside man and a 47-year-old Rosebud man have been charged with murder and are expected to face Melbourne Magistrates Court on Saturday.

The body was found at the factory on Governor Road just before 10am on Friday.

Russell Schmidt, who works at a nearby factory, said he saw the dead man's parents yelling their son's name outside the factory on Thursday night.

Mr Schmidt said the man's father was looking for his son, who had failed to return home after phoning his wife to say he was on his way.

'The old man wandered over to me with tears in his eyes and said his son's name,' he told AAP.
