The car was found a short distance away but the men still haven't been located.
Shandu's nephew, Sihle, described his uncle as a caring and supportive man.
He said their family was in shock and all they wanted was to find his body and give him a dignified burial.
“He’s dead, but what we want now is we just want his body. We are praying for God to help us to find our father and uncle.”
The provincial government has confirmed that one person lost their life during the weekend’s inclement weather.
