DANE Kowalski, the Melbourne man found dead in the South Australian Outback, left a note saying he was bitten by a snake, his mother claims.

Tragic details have emerged about his fateful final hours alone and helpless in the Outback as the family of the 27-year-old plumber grappled with news of his death after a tireless three-month search.

Mr Kowalski's mother Vera told the Sunday Mail that police found a note near his abandoned ute that said "I've been bitten by a snake."

She said the note, written in pencil on a piece of cardboard, was found on a tree near the vehicle. She said early investigations appeared to suggest that her son had become bogged on a sandy desert track 95km south of Coober Pedy.

"There were sticks under the tyres and on the track,'' Ms Kowalski said. "He had been trying to turn the car around and it got stuck." It's thought that Mr Kowalski was bitten as he was trying to gather sticks to put under the wheels for traction. His body was discovered 340m from his ute.

Police would not confirm if Mr Kowalski was bitten by a snake or if his vehicle had become bogged. The paper understands that the car was fitted with a steering wheel lock. Ms Kowalski had headed to Coober Pedy after police had located her son's vehicle on Tuesday afternoon.

Mr Kowalski was last seen on December 13 when he told friends he was heading to Darwin for a fishing trip.

His body was found at 12.30pm on Friday in harsh scrub about 4km off the main highway. It's not clear why he had diverted on to the isolated road or how long his car had been at the location.

"We think he was on his way to Darwin,'' Ms Kowalski, who returned to Melbourne on Saturday, said. Joined by other family and friends, the desperate mother had helped search in the area herself in the days since the ute was located. SES and CFS volunteers had walked methodically in a grid cutting across the desolate Ingomar Station.

"I nearly found him myself. If I kept walking I would have found him," Ms Kowalski said. "I just loved him so much. My sister and I lost our mother when I was 17 and she was nine, and now my beautiful boy has been taken from me."

Ms Kowalski said she deeply appreciated the support from friends and strangers who tried to help find her son. The remains of the young tradesman have been taken to Adelaide for an autopsy. Police have said his death was not suspicious.

Ms Kowalski told The Advertiser on Saturday morning she had lost faith.

"My sister and I lost our mother when I was 17 and she was nine and now my beautiful boy has been taken from me," she said.

"I'm a bit of an atheist now when I never used to be. I've lost my faith now, that's it.''

Ms Kowalski said she deeply appreciated the support from friends and many strangers who tried to help find her son's body.

Police have ruled out foul play.
