O’Connor had earlier posted a series of tweets on Thursday after her son went missing.
She wrote: “Shane, your life is precious. God didn’t chisel that beautiful smile on your beautiful face for nothing. My world would collapse without you. You are my heart. Please don’t stop it from beating. Please don’t harm yourself. Go to the Gardai and let’s get you to hospital.”
The singer posted earlier on Thursday: “This is a message for my son, Shane. Shane, it’s not funny any more all this going missing. You are scaring the crap out of me.
