REFLECTIONS ABOUT SEAN SIDI

Our most vivid memories will ALWAYS be of how much Sean (SIDI) and his sister Danielle LAUGHED so much together..... We live for the day when the Sean is reunited with us, and we are once again A COMPLETE FAMILY. 

FACE RECOGNITION of MISSING PERSONS FROM FLIERS & POSTS ARE THE NO. 1 way MISSING PERSONS ARE LOCATED. PLEASE SHARE & HELP US POST SEAN'S FLIERS. We will mail colored fliers (regular or water protected) to YOU - anywhere in the U.S. Please email lynnkching@yahoo.com to have Sean's missing person fliers mailed to you.

Status of "SEAN SIDI" sightings

THANKS to ALL who continue help us SEARCH for Sean. Following recent (unconfirmed) sightings, MANY of you have taken time out of your day to HELP: You have walked into the Berkeley police station with Sean's fliers, posted & distributed fliers to food distribution places & workers near Telegraph/Bancroft, local homeless shelters, organizations which work with the homeless and to those in the area. So many help from AFAR, sharing Sean's FB posts and posting Sean's flier in your car window and wherever you may be. 

We PRAY each day for THAT ONE CALL that SEAN IS ALIVE AND LOCATED!!!!! 

Currently, a signifiant threat to us NOT finding Sean is the fact that California DOJ (DEPT OF JUSTICE) has yet to enter Sean's thumbprint (from CA DMV) into the national databases, despite having Sean's thumbprint since Nov 2013.

According to NCMEC (National Center for Missing & Exploited Children), if Sean is picked up by police for erratic behavior or other offense, and is unable or unwilling to provide police with his REAL NAME, Sean could be jailed and lost in the jail system without us knowing...... One mom of a missing child told me it took CA DOJ TWO YEARS to enter her son's fingerprints into the national database. 

It is an uphill battle for us and anyone with a missing loved one...2,000 NEW missing person cases in the U.S. EACH day.

CAR WINDOWS AND THE SEARCH FOR SEAN SIDI

Another “Sean” sighting was called in today from San Francisco (9th and Irving). After further inquiry, it does not appear to have been Sean, however, we greatly appreciate the call. 

Please know that ALL but 1 the 100+ “Sean sightings” we have received occurred after someone saw Sean’s flier. 

PLEASE CONSIDER POSTING 2 – 3 FLIERS IN A PLACE CONVENIENT FOR YOU, and REPOSTING IT – as needed - EACH WEEK. WE DESPERATELY NEED FLIERS AT GROUND ZERO (CALIFORNIA) and ELSEWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES!!!. 

HERE IS ONE IDEA WE WOULD LIKE TO REVISIT - POSTING SEAN’S FLIER IN YOUR CAR WINDOW. 

Lisa V. recently wrote…..” We have Sean’s flyer taped to our car window, so that wherever we go we are a moving sign. Many, many people have commented on it saying they have seen the flyers and they how things are going with the search. It is a simple way to get a lot of notice.”

Laurie M said, “I have also posted a sign on a car window in each of our cars. I cannot tell you the number of people who have read the sign. When I am driving, people look over. When the car is parked, they stop to read it.”

Two weeks ago a nice gentlemen approached Claude and me in the Safeway parking lot, after seeing Sean’s flier in our car window. He asked us whether we had more fliers (which of course we did), as he wanted a stack to pass out. He had heard about our search for Sean at the vigil in Golden Gate Park, and since then has Sean’s flier posted at his shop at Geary and 26 Avenue.

PLEASE KNOW THAT EVERY FLIER COUNTS in our desperate search for Sean SIDI. If you would like to help post/distribute Sean’s missing person fliers (anywhere in the U.S.) please email lynnkching@yahoo.com to have fliers mailed to you. 

See www.facebook.com/findseansidi or www.seansidi.com for more information on the desperate search for critically injured Sean SIDI, age 19, missing from San Francisco May 21, 2013. 

Sean is 19 yrs., is asian/white; 5'5" 120 lbs slim build; wears silver dental braces; right eye droops slightly; bump on right forehead from brain surgery; has dimples. SEAN IS IN URGENT NEED OF MEDICAL CARE. 

Below is a photo of Sean after 2 brain surgeries and a surgery to repair a broken wrist. Sean could barely walk after his accident late 2012. He built up his strength after leaving the hospital by hiking. 

 

Second Sean SIDI Sighting Being Investigated

Yesterday, we reported a tip received from someone in San Rafael (Marin) about an older white male, with a mixed race (white/asian) teen at Peet's Coffee in San Rafael on or about January 4, 2014.  See Post of January 12, 2014. 

Later that evening, someone else reported seeing an older white male, with someone  resembling Sean.  This sighting occurred @ Dec 19, 2013 at Laurel Village, San Francisco.

We are attempting to secure video surveillance at both locations.

Please keep an eye open for Sean SIDI, age 19, missing from San Francisco, CA May 21, 2013. Sean suffered a severe traumatic brain injury prior to going missing and is urgent need of medical care.  Sean is white/asian, 5'5", 120 lbs, dark brown wavy hair, dark brown eyes, wears silver dental braces, has dimples, slight bump on right forehead from brain surgery.

WOULD YOU RECOGNIZE SEAN SIDI?


It has been 8 long months since Sean SIDI, age 19, vanished without a trace from San Francisco, CA, on May 21, 2013. This morning, I was speaking to a friend (who had not met Sean in person) on the telephone while she was driving (hands free, of course). All of a sudden she pulled to the side and made a U turn, as she thought that she had seen Sean. She was not sure whether it was Sean, but was unwilling to let him escape. "Sean" noticed her following him in her car and approached her car window. My friend told "Sean" that he looked like the missing person she was seeking. "Sean" indicated that he was NOT a missing person. Undeterred, my friend asked "Sean" whether he wore braces. "Sean" said 'no'. My friend finally allowed "Sean" to leave.

THE POINT IS THAT IT IS NOT SO EASY TO RECOGNIZE SEAN, made harder if he has been living on the streets for the past 8 months.

BEFORE SEAN'S ACCIDENT: FOR THOSE WHO KNEW SEAN IN HIGH SCHOOL (JUNE 2012) AND BEFORE THE ACCIDENT, Sean wore his hair SHORT and did not wear dental braces.

AFTER SEAN's ACCIDENT IN DEC 2012, Sean grew his hair LONG to cover the scars. He also agreed to put on dental braces (again) to correct a problem with his bite which occurred when his jaw continued to grow after his braces were taken off in 9th grade.

SUMMARY; SEAN SIDI, AGE 19, WOULD LIKELY HAVE LONG HAIR, LOOKING LIKE AN AFRO IF IT HAS NOT BEEN TRIMMED FOR 8 MONTHS.  Sean does not grow much facial hair.  WE ARE ASSUMING HE IS STILL WEARING DENTAL BRACES. HE IS 5'5" AND 120 LBS, DK BROWN HAIR (WAVY) AND DK BROWN EYES. SEAN HAS DIMPLES. HE COULD BE WEARING SUNGLASSES (not sure if he had any with him).  HE WILL BE LIKELY LOOKING LOST OR OUT OF SORTS. 

SEAN IS ASIAN, FRENCH AND ITALIAN. 

PLEASE COMPARE THE (top photo) PRE-INJURY PHOTO (taken @June 2012) with the SHORT HAIR (for those who knew Sean in high school), with the POST INJURY photo taken about 3 months after Sean's accident (@March 2013) WITH LONGER HAIR AND DENTAL BRACES.

HOPEFULLY, THIS WILL ASSIST IN RECOGNIZING SEAN. PLEASE CALL & TEXT (415.713.5913) or email lynnkching@yahoo.com, if you think you see Sean.

SEAN SIDI FAMILY SEARCH PLANS JANUARY 2014

Dear Friends & Family,

In view of the search and rescue (SAR) team’s ‘strong scent’ recent find of Sean (see post of Dec 28, 2013), we are  seeking HELP posting Sean’s fliers.  THE FLIERS PLAY A CRUCIAL PART IN LOCATING SEAN.    

 

1.  THOSE LIVING OR WORKING IN SAN FRANCISCO:  

Fliers are pulled down by street cleaners within days of being posted.    Therefore, this time around, we would like to try the following (in addition to those who are so generously posting in a given area- thank you!!):

 

**** We are seeking help from as many people as possible to  POST JUST A FEW (3 OR 4)  of SEANS FLIERS on your weekly route –  and TO REPOST THE FLIERS AS NEEDED (i.e. as they are torn down), UNTIL SEAN IS FOUND.   If possible, please message or email lynnkching@yahoo.com, so that the GRID MAP can be completed.  The goal is to get most San Francisco streets posted with at least 1 of Sean’s Missing Person Flier.

 

2.  THOSE LIVING IN MARIN OR SONOMA COUNTY, NORTH ALONG HWY 1 OR 101.

 

There are various tips which make the Hwy 101 & Hwy 1 corridor (NORTH THRU MARIN AND SONOMA COUNTY) a posting priority (at this time) ALONG with San Francisco:   PLEASE POST IN THE CITIES IN MARIN AND SONOMA.  MANY PEOPLE LIVING HERE ARE NOT AWARE THAT SEAN IS CRITICALLY MISSING. 

 

3.   ELSEWHERE IN CALIFORNIA OR THE USA.  – PLEASE POST!!!!

 

YOUR FLIER MAY BE THE ONE THAT BRINGS SEAN HOME TO US, SAFE~!!

 

We will provide more information regarding tips received and upcoming plans, in the days to come.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!!!

IN HOPE,

SEAN SIDI’S FAMILY
