THANK YOU SAN FRANCISCO POLICE FOR RESPONDING TO SEAN SIDI SIGHTING SO QUICKLY!

THANK YOU SAN FRANCISCO POLICE - FOR RESPONDING SO QUICKLY TO A "SEAN SIDI" SIGHTING TONIGHT.

Tonight, a caring San Francisco citizen called San Francisco Police on their NON-EMERGENCY LINE: 415.553.0123. She informed police of the Sean sighting at California/Polk & reminded police that SEAN was 'CRITICALLY MISSING" with a brain injury (VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR POLICE IF YOU CALL IN A SIGHTING.)

The citizen called me & advised me that POLICE from the NORTHERN STATION in San Francisco responded immediately.

UNFORTUNATELY, IT WAS NOT SEAN.

NONETHELESS, we would like to thank San Francisco POLICE for responding so quickly, and the SAN FRANCISCO resident for calling police on a possible Sean sighting.

You ALL - by sharing the POSTS, and LOOKING for SEAN during your DAY, allow us to HOPE that Sean may be found one day - soon!!

STARTING THIS WEEK, WE WILL START DISTRIBUTING THE ATTACHED FLIER IN AN EFFORT TO GET PEOPLE TO SEND PICTURES of "Sean".

PLEASE EMAIL lynnkching@yahoo.com with your address IF YOU CAN HELP POST 5-10 of THE NEW FLIERS ON COMMUNITY BOARDS, OR OTHER LOCATIONS WHICH MAY STAND A CHANCE OF STAYING UP FOR AWHILE.

see www.seansidi.com or www.facebook.com/findseansidi for more information on critically injured Sean SIDI (age 19) missing from San Francisco CA May 21, 2013. Sean may not know his name or his DIRE MEDICAL NEEDS due to a severe traumatic brain injury suffered shortly before going missing. call 415.713.5913 or 911 if you see SEAN.

 

Sean SIDI UPDATE - August 14, 2014

UNCONFIRMED SEAN SIDI SIGHTING 

Yesterday, Joseph, a long-time resident of San Francisco, advised me that at @ 3:40 pm, he saw someone resembling Sean in San Francisco at 9th and Brannan St. while driving. Joseph sent me a FB message shortly thereafter, but for some reason I did not see it. “Sean” was carrying a small external framed backpack, and wearing dark pants and a light colored T-shirt. Due to traffic restrictions, Joseph was unable to turn around to confirm the sighting with a photo. Moreover, given that there are VERY FEW OF SEAN’S fliers posted in San Francisco FOR ANY DURATION, it took time for him to locate my contact information. 

Wherever you are, please keep an eye out for “Sean” and send a PHOTO of “Sean” to 415.713.5913 or lynnkching@yahoo.com, if there is a chance that someone may be OUR Sean.

Thank you to Joseph and to so many of you FOR CARING and for KEEPING AN EYE OUT FOR SEAN!!! I STRONGLY BELIEVE WITH ALL MY HEART THAT OUR BEST CHANCE OF FINDING SEAN RESTS WITH THE GENERAL PUBLIC.    TIME AND TIME AGAIN, MISSING PERSONS HAVE BEEN located BY CARING CITIZENS.

The search for Sean CONTINUES. Today I spoke with Sean’s case manager at the ‘National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’ (NCMEC). NCMEC ‘s corporate partners, including WAL MART, are continuing to POST Sean’s NCMEC FLIER in the Western United States. See Sean’s NCMEC flier at: 

www.missingkids.com/poster/NCMC/1218566/1#poster

IF ANYONE OUT THERE HAS SEEN one of NCMEC’s fliers of Sean, CAN YOU please SEND ME A PHOTO & THE LOCATION?

We continue to HOPE, 

Lynn, Claude and Danielle Sidi

Search for Sean SIDI - August 6, 2014

Last week, we and several hundred of SEAN'S Uncles, Aunts and Cousins from the Yan Quong Ching family - across the U.S. met in Hawaii for a family reunion (held every 2 years) spanning 5 days, and ending with a beach luau in Hauula!! So great to see everyone!! We would like to thank so many family members who have supported the SEARCH FOR SEAN over the last YEAR, and who came up to us during the reunion to offer words of support. 

Currently, we are preparing for the worst and hoping for the best as HURRICANE Iselle and Julio head towards Hawaii. The hurricanes will hopefully weaken to a survivable level….We are currently stocking food, filling containers with water & enjoying the LAST sunny day before the winds and rain HIT the island. 

We tried to fly out today to avoid the hurricane but could not secure a flight. Therefore, we join the masses in riding on the hurricane (hopefully not) or tropical storm (preferable to hurricane, but still scary)….. Thank you to JAN & FRED for housesitting! 

Regardless of how long we are hurricane bound, we HOPE that wherever you are - you will continue to search for SEAN. keep an eye out for him, and SHARE the posts. Recently, we received several comments regarding a GG park worker who believed she saw "Sean" near GG Park several months ago. This is unconfirmed. However, we will reinvigorate the search in this area in HOPES of reaching mobile street youth who many encounter Sean. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT SEAN'S BRAIN INJURY stacks the ODDS of survival against him as per his neurosurgeon. HE is NOT "VOLUNTARILY" MISSING. NOR IS HE AWARE OF HIS MEDICAL NEEDS. PLEASE TAKE A PICTURE AND SEND TO 415.713.5913 if there is even a 1% chance it is Sean.    Sean is 20 yrs old, 5'5", 120 lbs., Asian/White, wears silver dental braces, dk brown eyes & dk brown wavy hair, scar on right forehead from brain injury.

You should be able to access the video even if you DO NOT have a facebook account.

It has been almost 15 months since Sean vanished.  The toll on every person in our family has been horrendous. 

No one deserves to go missing.   No family should have to live through this nightmare... We hope that one day we will be able to write all of you to say that Sean has been found SAFE!!!

Search for Sean SIDI - July 27, 2014

Today, Claude (Sean's dad), Danielle (Sean's sister) and Danielle's friends are out water skiing, swimming and tubing on Lake Sonoma. It makes me happy to know that Danielle is smiling and laughing with her friends...

I am desperately working on regaining some sense of ...?? healing?? happiness?? Not sure what the words are. Unfortunately, I do not know if that is possible given the depth of my sense of loss.

I thought I knew love - until Sean (my firstborn) & his sister arrived.. There are no words to describe THAT feeling is there? That - that love could burn even brighter and stronger as time passed - was amazing!! All parents know what I am saying. In the back of my mind, I knew those feeling made me vulnerable to incomparable pain should something happen to Sean (or Danielle). But how could it? Like every parent, I took every care and precaution I could!!!

I still cannot believe that this happened to my funny, articulate, personable boy - who made us smile and laugh so much?!!! Last week a family found their 18 year old autistic son who went missing in Los Angleles - 20 days after he went missing. He was dehydrated and hurt, but ALIVE. WHY could WE not locate Sean when he needed us??!! How do we live with this guilt?

... I recently spoke to a cafe owner in Eugene OR who claimed to have seen someone resembling Sean. He did recall braces....& claims to have seen "Sean" late spring/early summer. On the other hand he says there are SO many street youth and MANY missing persons fliers in Eugene. I hope that he calls me if he sees "Sean" again.

THANK YOU to all those continuing to POST Sean's fliers. PLEASE send PICTURES & location so that we can POST. It is good to know where the fliers are. Claude saw a black & white flier in Berkeley yesterday - Please send PM or email lynnkching@yahoo.com with your ADDRESS to have fliers MAILED TO YOU anywhere in the U.S....I still have BOXES & BOXES of Sean's fliers.

See www.seansidi.com or www.facebook.com/findseansidi for more information on the search for critically injured Sean Sidi, age 19 (time of missing), missing from San Francisco, CA since May 21, 2013. Sean is 5’5”, 120 lbs, slim build; Asian/White; dark brown hair & eyes; WEARS SILVER DENTAL BRACES; has dimples; right eye droops slightly. Sean may not know his name and may be disoriented due to a traumatic brain injury suffered shortly before going missing. He is in URGENT need of medical care.

Picture of Sean (far right) with good friends Paul and Nobuo. It was good to see Paul and Nobuo this summer!!! They along with Sean's many other friends (& their parents) - filled our house with laughter and precious memories for so many years. Sleepovers, birthday parties, soccer matches, parent parties...the memories are endless!!!

Search for Sean SIDI alive in OREGON July 2014

FROM Portland OR ------------

Michal and husband Jan REPORTED that the search for SEAN SIDI is very much alive in Portland OREGON. This week, they stopped at the POLICE STATION and the UNION GOSPEL MISSION IN CHINATOWN (Portland, OR) to post Sean’s flier, but to their surprise, Sean’s FLIER was already UP!!! (THANKS to some of YOU!!!) 

Michal wrote, "In BOTH places, Sean's flier was IMMEDIATELY recognized." THANK YOU Michal, & JAN FOR posting SEAN’S FLIER in Whole Foods, Starbucks and other areas in Portland!! 

FROM Eugene OR -----------------

Below are pictures of Lily, who together with her mom, posted Sean’s flier at U of Oregon, & businesses in Eugene. They also handed them to the pubic, updated the flier at the Sheriff’s office and providing Sean’s flier to organizations in Eugene providing services to the homeless. Lily and her mom spoke to many people – and 3 people claimed to have recognized Sean. I will be following up with 1 person (who had a phone) tomorrow. Lily obtained helpful information from those working at Eugene Mission regarding places providing medical care and dining services (not always easy to locate on the internet) to the homeless. I will follow up and report back. 

Thank you LILY and Lily’s mom for HELPING us KEEP THE SEARCH for Sean ALIVE. IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT Sean’s chances of being located are much increased with “boots on the ground”!!
