Help find Sean Sidi

We need your help to find our son

SOCKS FOR SEAN SIDI - IS ON !!!


Another year ending with no sign that Sean is alive, but no body identified as his. We go to work, we live our lives, we go on & YET we DO NOT.   We can never truly move forward without resolution.   We ache to hold Sean & dream of seeing him alive.  However, if Sean is not alive, we want to know. "Not knowing" can drive one to the depths of depression & beyond.....

How do we survive with any semblance of grace & dignity? Perhaps it rests with acknowledging the needs & suffering of others & helping in whatever way possible.

TO THAT END, we are proceeding (it was on hold)  with 'SOCKS for SEAN". The intent is to distribute a few WARM, NEW SOCKS to those in need. This will NOT cure the ills of the world, nor will it find Sean, but its something... IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE in "Socks for SEAN":

1. Please DISTRIBUTE 1 or 2 PAIRS of WARM SOCKS TO homeless NEAR YOU & include Sean's flier. THIS WILL HELP SPREAD THE WORD about SEAN & HELP someone in need. Some, like Tina A. in Marin share Sean's fliers while feeding the homeless. Danielle and I generally distribute Sean's flier with a $1 bill. THIS is the same idea, but with SOCKS.

IF YOU ARE ABLE, SEND A PICTURE, OR LET US KNOW WHERE YOU DISTRIBUTED YOUR SOCK(S).

2. IF YOU PREFER THAT WE DISTRIBUTE THE SOCKS, Send or drop off your sock contribution to:

Claude SIDI, 450 Sutter St, Suite 1819, San Francisco. CA 94108

**We will distribute the socks January & February 2015.

SEAN SIDI TIP & 18 MONTH MISSING

NEW SEAN SIDI TIP & 18 MONTH MARK TODAY....

THANK YOU JEFFREY K. who sent in a Sean sighting after seeing a FLIER one of YOU posted. The sighting was of someone with a bump on the right forehead (as described on Sean's flier) in a sleeping bag near the UC Berkeley art museum on Bancroft Way in Berkeley, CA. The person sending in the tip did NOT get a good look at possible "SEAN", but did see the bump on the right forehead, please keep an eye open for possible "Sean".

TODAY MARKS 18 months since Sean vanished. Describing the exhaustion and sorrow of living each day not knowing whether Sean is alive is hard to convey.

It is better described by one family who has lived "not knowing" & WHO found their father, Charles Dowd, deceased, after searching for 8 days. Upon sharing a post from SEAN’s FB page, Charles Dowd’s Family wrote,

*********

“Quietly reflecting on the painful days that Dad was missing. The grief and sadness but also overwhelming GRATITUDE when he was found (deceased)....the limbo of "missing" is VERY, VERY HARD........" See https://www.facebook.com/MissingPersonCharlieDowd.

****************
THANK YOU Charles Dowd Family for sharing Sean's posts and Thank YOU ALL for supporting our search for SEAN these past 18 months, with prayers, liking/sharing, monetary donations, calling in sightings, helping us SEARCH, & MOST OF ALL your PRICELESS GIFT of POSTING SEAN'S FLIERS - all over the United States.

Update of Sean SIDI sighting in Portland, Oregon November 11, 2014

Thank you to the many volunteers on the ground who searched various locations in downtown Portland for "Sean".  On Monday night, search volunteers with the help of Portland Police were able to verify the identity of 1 young man who people believed resembled Sean.  Unfortunately, the young man was NOT Sean.

Our search for Sean continues!

Thoughts re: Missing Sean SIDI

This was posted to FB Sunday night:

Nothing I can think to say or share seems right tonight.

I was remembering 19 years together as a very happy family, and how all that changed so abruptly in a day. My memories encompass Sean, our gentle, smiling boy, but most are of Sean and Danielle together...their mischievous laughter & non-stop games...how our family seems so incomplete without Sean. I am not quite sure how we will manage to get through this.

Thank you to so many who help us keep the search for Sean alive..To Mahsa who posted Sean's fliers at Cal Train & the GIANTS game this weekend; to Jeff who distributed Sean's fliers on CAL TRAIN; to the caller who sent a photo of possible "Sean" this weekend; to JENNY & OPIE for covering the FEDERAL buildings, to Susan H for providing us with Sean's fliers at lower than cost, to SO VERY MANY of YOU, posting & sharing... Thank you.

Sean Sidi Follow Up: Photo of "John Doe" 19 yr Teen with no Memory" Received


Today, we received the photo of the 'Asian John Doe Teen (19 yr old) with No Memory', from the County of Shasta.  

We wish we could convey good news. Unfortunately, the John Doe teen was NOT Sean.

Our hearts are broken…this one time, we dared to hope. However, it was not to be….

We thank so many of you who came to our assistance in following this lead. If you have Sean’s flier up in Redding, CA, we would be grateful if you would consider keeping it up, as Sean is STILL missing.

In Hope,

The Sidi Family

COURT ORDER SIGNED RE: "JOHN DOE" 19 YR. ASIAN TEEN WITH NO MEMORY

Friday, October 17, 2014, the Superior Court of CA signed an order allowing us to view County records relating to the Asian teen with no memory [“John Doe Teen”], confirmed to be in Redding CA in late February / early March 2014. At least 3 persons who had extended contact with the John Doe Teen stated that this teen strongly resembled Sean.

I received the County records late Friday afternoon. Unfortunately, a photo was not included and we cannot say for sure whether the John Doe Teen was or was not Sean. Fingerprints were included in the County files, however, it is unknown how long it will take SFPD to match the prints with Sean’s prints. We are hoping the County will locate a PHOTO and/or that SFPD can run the fingerprints in a timely manner.

In the meantime, our search for Sean continues in Redding, throughout California AND across the United States. For those in Redding, please keep your eyes open for Sean, and/or the John Doe Teen - who may need your help regardless of whether he is or is not, Sean. It was confirmed that the John Doe TEEN WAS RELEASED to the RESCUE MISSION shelter in Redding (after he was provided with food, hydration, medical care and after medical staff ascertained the John Doe Teen was @ 19yrs old (Sean's age), and not a minor).

It is worth mentioning that court records indicate that Shasta County Sheriffs and Children Services, who provided the John Doe Teen with medical care and other services did as much as possible to ascertain the teen's IDENTITY & to locate his family. The teen's prints WERE run thru the Missing Persons database early March 2014. However, since CA Dept of Justice did not transfer Sean's DMV prints to the Missing Persons database until April 2014 (1 year after he went missing), it would have been impossible to make a match.

Thank YOU to so many, near and FAR who shared the post, and otherwise spread the word and enlisted the help of your friends in the area. Our gratitude to the Redding RECORD SEARCHLIGHT media who will run a story on Sean today. Please share the article with us if you see it.

We will keep you posted.

Thank you ALL,
Lynn, Claude & Danielle
