The very last photo of Sinead O'Connor's teenage son was released the day before he was found dead by detectives.

Yesterday, the 55-year-old singer, best known for her hit song 'Nothing Compares 2 U', shared on Twitter that her son Shane had "decided to end his earthly struggle today." He died two days after he was reported missing from the hospital he had been admitted to.

In the CCTV photograph, which was used as part of a police appeal to find Shane, the late youngster can be seen wearing a black hoodie, dark sweatpants, a T-shirt, and white sneakers.

O'Connor wrote of her young son's passing on Twitter: "My beautiful son, Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the very light of my life, decided to end his earthly struggle today and is now with God.

"May he rest in peace and may no one follow his example. My baby. I love you so much. Please be at peace."

When Shane went missing from the hospital, having been on suicide watch, O'Connor took to the social media platform to threaten the hospital with a lawsuit if anything happened to her son.

The singer wrote: "Like, how has a seventeen year old traumatised young person WHO WAS ON SUICIDE WATCH in Tallaght Hosptial’s Lynn Ward been able to go missing??? Hospital of course so far refusing to take any responsibility. Anything happens to my son on their watch? Lawsuits."

She also berated the Irish state in the wake of her son's death, writing: "26 hours after my son died in the so called care of the Irish State in the form of Tusla, I have yet to receive any contact from Tusla or their representatives.

"I was informed by Gardai of my son’s death and later I spoke with the GAL. No contact from Tusla is unacceptable."

She later took issue with Tulsa once more for its lack of sensitivity regarding her son's recent death.

She wrote: "My lawyer received this from Tusla’s lawyer. Can tusla pls finally note my child is not named “the remains”. His name is Shane “Yes, I’m instructed that your client has been advised that the identification of the remains will take place this afternoon”."
