A body found in the Hudson River yesterday is likely that of Ian Jones, a New York City resident who went missing after his kayak capsized early Saturday morning. The Dutchess County Sheriff's Office said the body was found near the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club around noon during a third day of searching.

Jones, a 32-year-old model and photographer, and girlfriend, artist Tali Lennox, 22, had been kayaking early Saturday when their tandem kayak overturned near Staatsburg. Sheriff's Captain John Watterson said previously, "They were able to stay together for about 15 or 20 minutes but then they got separated by the current. “They were holding onto the kayak and kicking and swimming all at the same time. They had only been separated for a few minutes before she was rescued."

Lennox, a daughter of singer Annie Lennox, "was in the water and she was located and picked up by a passing vessel," Watterson said. "She was interviewed and gave us an account of what happened. She stated they were kayaking a two-person tandem kayak and then it capsized. She gave us the location where she last saw him and there’s where we started to concentrate our search." Watterson also had said that authorities "believe that alcohol may have played a role."

Neither Jones nor Lennox was wearing a life vest. The couple had been at a private gathering on Friday night and were staying at a bed and breakfast in Columbia County.

An autopsy will be conducted today. Watterson told the NY Times that many times people are unprepared when swimming or boating in the Hudson: "Going in the Hudson River, or any river, is not like going in a lake or a pool. There is a current and it can be pretty rough. Once you get out there and realize, it can be too late."

Lennox posted an image of herself and Jones on Instagram, writing, "My heart is shattered. My best friend, my soul mate, my partner in crime & creativity, the LOVE & LIGHT of my life is no longer with me. All the love that has been sent to me is giving me the strength to get through this. I know that he is so so happy that I was safely rescued. Let us honor & celebrate this beautiful soul & keep following the light."
