Authorities have discovered a human male corpse in the Hudson River close to wear Tali Lennox and her boyfriend Ian Jones had a kayaking accident at the weekend.

The 22-year-old daughter of singer-songwriter Annie Lennox went kayaking on Saturday with her beau Ian Jones, but the couple experienced tragedy when their boat capsized just outside of Poughkeepsie, New York. Due to a strong current from a passing vessel Ian drifted away from Tali and has been missing ever since.

Now TMZ is reporting that authorities have found a corpse just a few miles away from where the kayak capsized that matches the 32-year-old’s physical description. Apparently officials spotted the body at an alcove floating in shallow water.

“Just after 12:00 pm on 8/10/15 a human male body was located in the Hudson River near the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club. The body has been removed, and is scheduled to undergo an autopsy on Tuesday 8/11/15 to determine the cause of death and identification,” the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement according to the Mail Online. “The body matches the description of Mr. Ian Jones, who has been missing in the Hudson River since the morning of Saturday 8/8/15 after a kayaking accident. While there is a strong possibility that the body recovered is that of Mr. Jones, it remains only a possibility at this time.”

Tali and Ian had been dating for several years before his disappearance.

The couple often enjoyed taking short trips to relax in nature.

Just five weeks ago Tali posted a photo of Ian on her Instagram account, in which he is seen gazing off into the distance with his feet in the water as he is sitting on the edge of a dock.

“Lake side Sunday's @rosettagetty @farfetch #rosettagetty #rosettagettyxfarfetch #tuscany (sic),” Tali wrote in the image caption.
