Playing Body of Annie Lennox's Daughter's Boyfriend Possibly Found After Kayak Accident

A male body matching the description of Ian Jones, the boyfriend of singer Annie Lennox's daughter, Tali Lennox-Fruchtmann, was found in the Hudson River in New York City on Monday near where the couple were kayaking on Saturday.

According to a statement from Captain John A. Watterson of the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office, "the body has been removed, and is scheduled to undergo an autopsy on Tuesday to determine the cause of death and identification."

The statement goes on to clarify, "While there is a strong possibility that the body recovered is that of Mr. Jones, it remains only a possibility at this time. Further information will be released once the autopsy is completed and official identification made, and at this time the search for Mr. Jones has been suspended until further notice."

Lennox-Fruchtmann, 22, was rescued by a passing vessel after the kayak she and Jones were in capsized. Neither Lennox-Fruchtmann nor Jones, 32, were wearing life preservers when the incident occurred and Jones has been missing ever since.

Authorities stated that the incident appears to be an accident and no foul play is suspected.

Capt. Watterson reportedly told People that it is possible that "alcohol may have played a role."

ET has reached out to Annie Lennox's rep, but a statement is not being released at this time.
