STAATSBURG, N.Y. – Authorities say a man's body found in the Hudson River matches the description of a kayaker who's been missing since an accident over the weekend.
Dutchess County Sheriff's Capt. John Watterson says Monday that the body found just after noon near the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club appears to be 32-year-old Ian Jones, but an official identification hasn't been made. An autopsy is planned Tuesday.
Watterson says Jones and his girlfriend, Tali Fruchtmann, 22, started kayaking early Saturday morning. Fruchtmann is the daughter of singer Annie Lennox.
The kayak overturned near the historic Mills Mansion in Staatsburg, 75 miles north of New York City. Neither paddler was wearing a life jacket.
Police say Fruchtmann was picked up by passers-by on a boat after being separated from Jones in the water.
