$5,000 Reward Offered by Sidi Family

The family of Sean Sidi, missing from San Francisco since May 21, 2013 has just announced they are offering a $5000.00 reward for information leading to Sean's safe return.  It is hoped that the reward will be the incentive that someone needs to provide information about Sean Sidi's whereabouts. 

The family has released a new missing person flier that includes the $5,000.00 reward and phone number for the San Francisco Police Department. The Sidi family desperately needs the help of volunteers to  distribute and share Sean’s flier in all sections of San Francisco , the Bay Area, and nationwide.  It is hoped that at least 3,000 fliers will be posted and distributed in San Francisco - alone - within the next several days.   The Reward flier can be downloaded and printed at, or obtained free of charge by contacting with your mailing address.

 Dear Friends and Family,


Our search for Sean continues with unabated urgency.  While all of you work tirelessly to distribute and repost Sean’s missing person flier, city workers in and out of San Francisco, continue to remove them! We try to not let this discourage us as we move forward in our search for Sean.  

The BIG QUESTION which remains to be answered (hopefully) this week is whether San Francisco Police will provide their ‘authorization’ for the ‘National Center for Exploited and Missing Children’ (“NCMEC”) to assist in the search for Sean.

As posted earlier, NCMEC is the largest non-profit organization in the world assisting missing children throughout the country.  It is blessed with a congressional mandate and $30 million in federal funding.  On Friday, June 28, 2013, Sean was registered with NCMEC under ‘Suzanne's Law’, thanks to the assistance of Robert G. Lowery Jr., Senior Executive Director of the Missing Children Division.  ‘Suzanne’s Law’ codified at 42 U.S.C. § 5779(a) allows NCMEC to provide additional resources to missing persons ages 18-21, to include investigative assistance, case analysis, profiling case information on the website at, and much more.  

However, before NCMEC can begin to assist in the search for Sean, San Francisco Police must provide their ‘authorization’.    On Monday, July 1, 2013, NCMEC contacted Captain Jason Fox of the San Francisco Police, to obtain authorization for NCMEC to provide assistance in the search for Sean.      We are currently awaiting Captain Fox’s response.


We will keep you posted as to any developments,


With Gratitude to All of You,

 Lynn and Claude

Dear Sean,

Dear Sean,

There isn't a minute that goes by that I don't miss you with all my heart and soul. I smile and cry when I read the Mother's Day card that you made for me - just weeks ago. Your sense of humor, your sweet and thoughtful nature, your ability to convey a message - in a simple drawing, are all embodied in your card. You are special, Sean. There is no other like you. Dad and I know - without a doubt, that you need our help to return home. We will not rest until we are reunited with you, and our family is together once again.

With All My Love,


New Flier

Grateful to NCMEC

NCMEC has incredible resources and a Congressional mandate.   We believe NCMEC will become a huge force in the search for Sean.   The family was contacted by the team leader on SAT at 6 am!  They do not stop working.

The family and friends of Sean Sidi, would like to extend thanks to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). NCMEC is the largest nonprofit in the world providing assistance to missing children. Sean was registered with NCMEC as of June 28th under Suzanne's Law that allows NCMEC to provide additional resources to missing persons 18-21 to include profiling case information on the website at, investigative assistance, case analysis, and more. We are extremely thankful to Robert G. Lowery Jr., Senior Executive Director, Missing Children Division for expediting this process.

June 29, 2013 UPDATE

Thank you to all of you who have written and called the Mayor's and the Attorney General's office, on Sean's behalf.  Your support is invaluable in raising awareness amongst the authorities who can provide assistance and resources in the search for Sean.


FBI Response - San Francisco Police has informed the Sidi Family that the FBI declined to handle Sean's case.  Although no formal reason was given, it is the family's understanding that the FBI requires a federal nexus for case acceptance.  This would include but not be limited to situations involving the crossing of interstate lines, such as in a kidnapping case.   That being said, there may be "exceptions".  The Sidi Family is conferring with their consultant to decide next steps. 


You Help Is Needed to Expand the Search for Sean  -  It has now been 5 weeks since Sean vanished.   The Sidi Family would like to expand its search of Sean throughout California, and beyond.   Your help is greatly needed in this effort.  A NEW FLIER is available for download (here) and on  Please help by sharing the FaceBook link.   Your help is also needed POSTING the new fliers IN and OUT of San Francisco.  If you have friends or relatives who live out of San Francisco (even in other states), they can help by downloading the fliers and posting the fliers in their area.   If you do not have a printer, email Lynn at, and she will mail out fliers to you.   EVERY POSTING COUNTS!
