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.

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.

Search for Sean SIDI at July 2014 Rainbow Family Gathering in UTAH

It is a 2.5 hr drive (from Salt Lake City) and a 1 hr hike IN– to reach people at the Rainbow gathering.    Yesterday, members of the ‘Search for Sean’ group met with law enforcement, medics and those at the Rainbow Gathering in Utah.    The group distributed Sean’s fliers and "Help Find Sean Sidi - 415.713.5913"  TOOTHBRUSHES.   They were well received by the Rainbow Family.  Thus far, no one claims to have seen Sean.   The search continues today. 

 

It has now always been 14 months since Sean vanished.  We have not received any new tips.  It is hard not to despair. We live each day as best as we can, waiting for news of Sean, found alive - or not.  The wait is unbearable.

 

 

We are grateful to all of you who continue to help us spread the word about our search for Sean, by sharing, posting, distributing Sean Flier T-shirts. 

 

 

Below is a PHOTO of Nikita.   Nikita's sister Lara went to high school with Sean.  Lara and Nikita have managed to get Sean's fliers in storefront windows and have posted in San Francisco.  Thank you Lara & Nikita and to so many of you helping to keep the flames of HOPE alive.  PHOTO of Sean (far right) and good friends.

SEARCH FOR SEAN SIDI CONTINUES!!

No new updates on our search for Sean (Sidi).  We are cognizant that many missing persons are not found for years, and many more never found..   We do not know how many will be following the search for Sean as time passes.  However, we do know that our love for Sean will carry us on for as long as it takes.

On Friday, I received a call from a bounty hunter in Eugene, Oregon.  He called to tell me that he saw Sean's flier up at "Eugene Mission", a place that serves the homeless (thanks to Sean’s AUNT LIANNE who has been mailing Sean's fliers to homeless shelters across the country, non-stop).

Our intent is to use San Francisco and the Bay Area as a home base (for vigils, media, (posting of fliers) etc.) while distributing Sean’s fliers across the country.    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) is continuing to send Sean’s AD across the United States.  Finding Our Children Under Stress (FOCUS/"3-Children" Organization www.threechildrenfocus.org) is distributing a binder containing fliers of Missing CHILDREN (including Sean Sidi’s) to post offices across California.  We will post FOCUS/”3-Children” pictures later this week.

YOU can help by continuing to SHARE Sean’s FB posts and by POSTING a flier or two ANY PLACE IN THE United States!!!   WE WOULD LOVE A PHOTO OF YOU, SEAN’S FLIER AND THE LOCATION WHERE Sean’s FLIER HAS BEEN POSTED!!!!

We will MAIL Sean's fliers anywhere in the United States. To receive a packet of Sean's fliers please email lynnkching@yahoo.com with your mailing address.

A (former) MISSING PERSON''S STORY OF HOPE FOR SEAN SIDI'S FRIENDS & FAMILY


Since Sean vanished a year ago, Claude, Danielle and I have battled crippling grief, despair and depression. At times, HOPE seemed elusive amidst the pain of Sean’s disappearance. 

An anonymous caller recently reminded us that there is always HOPE. This is his STORY. 

The caller said that 15 years ago he suffered a traumatic brain injury. One day – during the early stages of his recovery, he was suddenly beset by a jumble of thoughts, voices in his head, and a loss of memory. He felt compelled to leave. For 2 years, he wandered homeless (& MISSING) and lived off the kindness of those around him. After a 2 year period had passed, the caller slowly regained some of his memory – and was able to contact his family. 

We can only HOPE that WE will be lucky enough to be reunited with SEAN one day soon. 

To everyone, including Sean’s FRIENDS returning home from college FOR THE SUMMER, please keep your eyes open for Sean among the HOMELESS. Sean may not remember his name, his former life or YOU. 

However, we hope that YOU will recognize SEAN (& call us)!! 

In Hope,

The Sidi Family 

PS, Thank you to all who volunteered to distribute Sean’s flier shirts. The mailing/deliveries will go out on Thursday and Friday. 

PSS.  Please email lynnkching@yahoo.com if you would like a flier shirt for yourself and/or anyone else willing to wear the shirt.
