The Mpumalanga woman went missing on Wednesday.

She is believed to have been kidnapped and hijacked at her home in Rocky Drift while on her way to work.

Provincial police spokesperson Sergeant Gerald Sedibe says an intensified search operation led to the discovery of the Myburgh's body in the Numbi area.

"Her body was found in the bushes a few kilometres outside White River."

A 26-year-old suspect was arrested on Saturday.

"He's been arrested in connection with her kidnapping and hijacking. More charges could be added once the post-mortem has been completed," Sedibe confirmed. 

Myburgh's car has been recovered.

The suspect is expected to appear in the White River Magistrate's Court on Monday 20 June.
