Annie Lennox's daughter's boyfriend is missing following a kayaking accident.

Police are still looking Tali Lennox-Fruchtmann's significant other Ian Jones after the pair's kayak capsized in the Hudson River in New York on Saturday morning (08.08.15).

Tali, 22, was rescued by a passing vessel but investigators have still yet to recover Ian, 32, following the accident at 9.30am local time.

Dutchess County Sheriff's Captain John Watterson told ''The current in the Hudson River is very strong and we believe the current played a role in the kayak capsizing, and once the two got in the water it was difficult for them to stay together.''

Police say they believe alcohol may have also played a part in the incident.

Tali is one of the legendary Eurythmics singer's daughters with ex-husband, music producer Uri Fruchtmann.

It's thought that neither Tali or her boyfriend were wearing life-preserving jackets during the trip.

Tali was assessed at the scene and was found to be fine. She aided much of the rescue effort which continued until 10pm on Saturday night.

Captain Watterson added: ''We're doing everything we can to find him. We hope to find him alive and well.''
