Both of them fell into the stream. Mrs Malaithip managed to swim to safety but could not help her mother, who disappeared into the rapidly-flowing stream. She was believed drowned.
A search was launched on Friday by a team of divers from a local rescue unit.
The body of Mrs Chan was found at about 12am on Sunday, about 2 kilometres downstream from the weir.
