Tali Lennox-Fruchtmann’s boyfriend, Ian Jones, is still missing after a kayaking accident on the Hudson River on Saturday, August 8.

Tali Lennox Fruchtmann is a model/visual artist who goes by the name Tali Lennox. She is the daughter of Eurythmics singer, Annie Lennox, who is famous for her 80s new wave hit song "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)".

In a press release, Capt. John Watterson of the Dutchess County Sherrif's Office said that Lennox, 22, and Jones, 32, were separated when a strong current tipped over their kayak. Lennox was rescued by a passing vessel but her boyfriend, Jones, was reported missing.

Watterson said that they are doing their best and are using all the resources they have to find Jones.

"Once the initial responding Deputies confirmed that Mr. Jones may still be in the water, Marine Patrols and Dive Teams from the Sheriff’s Office and other agencies immediately responded to begin searching the river," read an official statement from the office of the Sheriff.

"Mr. Jones has not been located, and the search is expected to be suspended sometime tonight. The size of the search area and the conditions on the river have made the search difficult up to this point, and both will be reevaluated tomorrow to determine if the search can continue;" the Sherrif's statement continued.

The authorities were certain that there is no foul play in the said incident. However, the investigation revealed that the couple was not wearing life preservers when they went kayaking.

Tali Lennox was examined right after the accident and only suffered minor injuries.

A description of Jones was released to hasten the investigation. Jones stands at 6’3” and is described to have a slim build and has dark hair. He was wearing denim pants and a denim shirt when the accident happened.

Anyone that spots someone matching Jones' description should contact the Dutchess County Sheriff at 845-486-3800, call the tip line at 845-605-2583 or email at
