Johannesburg - A 65-year-old woman was found murdered on her farm in Great Brak, near Mossel Bay, Western Cape police said on Sunday.

Police found the body of Ria Mills on Saturday night while responding to a call from friends she was supposed to meet for dinner, said Captain Malcolm Pojie.

Police arrived at her farm, Potsteel-Hoogte in Hamelkop, shortly before 20:00.

"The body of the deceased was found in the lounge with a gunshot wound to the neck. Police also confiscated a .38-Special revolver that was found on the scene."

The gun would be send for ballistic tests to determine its involvement in the murder.

Pojie said Mills's iPad, laptop and her handbag were stolen.

He said preliminary investigations showed that the killers fled in Mills's Chevrolet utility bakkie, which was recovered on a footpath near the Wolwedans Dam on Sunday morning.

A post mortem would be conducted during the week to determine the cause of death.
