Police found the 46-year-old's body in the Silverglen Nature Reserve yesterday just days after the body of his 68-year-old mother, Latchmi Durgan, was recovered from a dam there.  

According to the family, Pillay had lived with his mother, a paraplegic and was her caregiver.  

They were both reported missing a week ago. And police launched an extensive search within the reserve after Pillay's abandoned car was found there.  

"The man's body was found in the same vicinity. Therefore, we are going to open a case of inquest at the Chatsworth police station for further investigation," police spokesperson, Thulani Zwane said.
