Still Missing - A Message from the Family

Dear Friends and Community of San Francisco,

It has now been over two weeks since Sean vanished without a trace from San Francisco.   As many of you know, he suffered a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) several months ago and considered to be very medically fragile.   Because of his injury, he may not know how to ask for help.   As a result, we still desperately need the public's help in finding Sean.  

Last week, volunteers in conjunction with The KlassKids Foundation conducted a grid search of Golden Gate Park.   Unfortunately although we covered a lot of ground, the search does not appear to have provided any clues as to Sean's whereabouts.  Also, last weekend, a team of volunteers traveled to Mendocino and Humboldt County along Hwy 1 and 101 posting flyers and visiting police stations.   

Our Next Step

Our next step is to continue creating a wide spread awareness of Sean's disappearance, not only focusing in San Francisco, by now extending into the Bay Area.   This weekend, both Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th, we have a group of volunteers scheduled to go to Marin County to post flyers and talk to the police.   In addition, we have hired a private investigator specializing in locating missing people to assist us in the search for Sean.  

While San Francisco remains the focal search area, it is always possible that Sean may have traveled outside of the city.   If you live or work in cities outside of San Francisco, you can help by posting Sean's Missing Person flyer in your neighborhood. 

How You Can Help

We need help in distributing and posting Sean's Missing Person Flyers in the soup kitchens and homeless shelters of San Francisco.   If Sean is disoriented and wondering the streets of San Francisco, he may have been directed to one of theses locations for food and shelter. 

Also, please continue posting and re-posting flyers everywhere in San Francisco.   The city streets cleaners do remove the flyers, however if we follow these guidelines the flyers will remain posted for a longer period of time.  

Please be sure to:

1)  Write the current date on the bottom right hand corner of the flyer.   If the flyer is posted in the appropriate places (see#2) the city workers should allow the flyer to remain posted for 70 days from the date on the flyer.

2) The best place to post flyers is on store front windows (with the owner's permission) and utility poles.    Please do not post flyers on bus stops, historic street lights, traffic signal poles or traffic directional sign poles as the city will remove them. 

Another way to spread the word beyond San Francisco is by sharing and re-posting Find Sean Sidi Facebook link with your friends and family.   Everyone, including those without a Facebook account, can access the page.  

 

Again, thank you so much for your help and support, 

~The Sidi Family

From the Sidi Family:

We would like to thank the KlaasKids Foundation and each and every volunteer who came out to search for our son Sean on Sunday in Golden Gate Park, the location of Sean's last cell phone call before he vanished on May 21st.  We were overwhelmed by the hundreds of volunteers who joined in the search for Sean.
 
While search teams located items of interest such as pieces of clothing and cell phones, at this juncture, none appear to belong to Sean or provide clues to Sean's whereabouts.
 
We would like to reach out to everyone to continue spreading the word about Sean, both in San Francisco and in the outlying areas of the Bay Area.  You can continue helping by keeping an eye out for Sean, posting flyers in your neighborhood, and sharing/re-posting Sean's Facebook link (Find Sean Sidi) with friends.  Also, if you are on twitter, please tweet a link to the Facebook Page:

Please help us find SF teenage with brain injury #seansidi <https://twitter.com/search?q=%23seansidi>.   Info: http://on.fb.me/18SEOlF Please RT

Because of his brain injury, Sean may be unable to seek help on his own so your help is crucial.

With Gratitude,

The Sidi Family

Parking for Sunday Search - June 2, 2013

Sundays in the park means that much of the park is closed to street traffic,

Therefore, if you are driving, street parking will fill up quickly.    Mind the street signs.  

Also on Kirkham and Lawton around 8th, 9th, 10, 11th there is usually parking and it is a quick down hill walk to the park.   There is also parking (especially early) at Ocean Beach at Fulton and Great Highway.   Then take the bus east from Great Highway --> Lincoln.   Link to SF MUNI here
