The search continued Sunday for the boyfriend of Tali Lennox-Fruchtmann, daughter of musician Annie Lennox, after the couple's kayak was capsized Saturday morning in New York City's Hudson River.

According to police, Tali and Ian Jones were kayaking Saturday morning near the Staatsburgh State Historic Site when their boat was capsized at about 9:30 a.m. local time.

Both parties went into the water and were unfortunately separated. While Tali was located and picked up by a passing vessel, Ian has not been located.

Officials confirmed to E! News that the weekend search consisted of a New York State Police helicopter and numerous officers both on foot and in boats. 

At this point in the investigation, police say the incident does not appear to be criminal in nature and no foul play is suspected.

Captain John Watterson of the Dutchess Country Sherriff's Office told local reporters that "alcohol may have played a role" in the kayaker's disappearance. Weather reports also indicate that strong rip currents were present over the weekend.

Tali and Ian are not shy about expressing their love for each other on social media. One look on each of their Instagram accounts and followers will find several shots of the couple.

"I am coming home to you @Talilennox!" Ian wrote one month ago while kissing his girlfriend on the forehead.

Police describe Ian as a white male with dark hair, 6 feet 3 inches tall with a slim build. He was last seen wearing jeans and a denim shirt.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Dutchess County Sheriff immediately, at 845-486-3800 or 845-605-CLUE (2583), or by emailing dcsotips@gmail.com.
