An 82 year-old woman from the Eastern Cape was found dead on Monday afternoon.

"Police found the body of the elderly nun in Nangeni in a small stream in the veld," Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela said.

The formation of an investigation team is underway as the cause of the woman's death remains in question.

She was hijacked and kidnapped in Norwood in Mthatha on Sunday, Fatyela said.

The nun's car was later spotted in Mthatha by people who worked with her and they followed the car.

"The police were also following the car and as the police approached the car it overturned," Fatyela said.

"Two men escaped on foot and police found a 9mm pistol with five rounds and a cellphone that belonged to one of the men."

No arrests have been made.
