Irish singer Sinead O'Connor's 17-year-old son found dead

Shane O'Connor, 17, was found dead in Ireland on Friday after

 his mother, Sinead O'Connor, reported him missing.

A body was found in Bray, on Ireland's east coast 

about 20 km (12 miles) south of Dublin, police said.

O'Connor announced on Twitter that her son, “the very light of my life,” had died. 

May he rest in peace and no one emulate him. My baby, I adore you. “Peace.”

Earlier, the 55-year-old singer had urged her son not to self-harm. 

She said he'd been hospitalised twice for suicidal thoughts.

Shane was O'Connor's youngest son. Donal Lunny was his father.
