Tragedy may have struck the Kennedy family, yet again. Robert F. Kennedy and grandniece of late president John F. Kennedy, according to the Washington Post.

In a Friday afternoon press conference, Governor Larry Hogan confirmed that the missing are Kennedy Townsend's daughter, Maeve, and grandson Gideon.

Maeve Kennedy, Townsend's daughter, and her 8-year-old son, Gideon, got into a canoe Thursday in the water of Chesapeake Bay off their home in Shady Side, Maryland, "to retrieve a ball and were unable to paddle back to shore", according to Maryland Natural Resources Police.

McKean said the pair 'popped into a canoe to chase it down. "They just got farther out than they could handle, and couldn't get back in", David McKean said.

Joseph Kennedy Jr, their brother, died in the Second World War, and their sister Kathleen Cavendish perished in a plane crash in 1948. Robert F. Kennedy's son, David, died of a drug overdose in 1984, and another of Robert's son, Michael, died in a skiing accident in 1997. She now works as the executive director of the Georgetown University Global Health Initiative.

A grand-niece of former president John F. Kennedy and her son disappeared off the coast of Maryland - and search crews have been scrambling to find them for almost 24-hours, according to a report Friday.

The caller reported that boaters were "seen struggling to return to shore in a canoe" near Herring Bay amid high winds before vanishing out of sight, the Coast Guard said. The pair issued a public rebuke of Ms McKean's uncle Robert Kennedy Jnr's virulent anti-vaccine activism in an op-ed to Politico magazine past year.

"People think, because I'm a Kennedy, I'm extremely wealthy and don't flaunt it. Ha! Ha!" she told Glamour in 2008. "We're fortunate compared to the average American, but to think I'm a trust fund kid - so not true!"
