To Those Who May Be Harboring Sean,
We believe Sean may be alive. We continue to receive first hand reliable tips - as recently as yesterday.
Sean has always been loved and cherished. He may have a brain injury, but he has lived 19 years of his life, knowing that he was loved, to the fullest extent. We believe that he still knows this.
Many seek Sean.
If we find him, and he is of sound mind, he will have our blessings (as always) to follow his heart and make his own decisions.
You may not know this, but when Sean awoke from his coma after his traumatic brain injury, the first thing he said to the nurses in ICU was, "I want my mother."
This speaks volumes.
Below are pictures of Sean with his dad at college, cousins & sister in Hawaii, & sister on the ski slopes.
Sean is much loved.
We beg you to disclose Sean's location to us. 415.713.5913.

Current sighting called in at 6:22 pm of "Sean" on Mission Street at Horn St., in the city of Oceanside in San Diego County. "Sean" was walking EAST on Mission Street (at Horn).
"SEAN" was wearing burgundy colored jeans, carrying what appeared to be 3 bed rolls or mats strapped to a back pack & wearing a HAT (caller could not recall the COLOR of the hat).
The person who called in the sighting was in a car & "Sean" was gone before she could turn around. Although she did not see braces on "Sean's" teeth, the caller was struck by the facial resemblance to Sean's pictures (she described "SEAN" as having a "sweet face"), and SIMILARITY of height, weight & build.
Please keep an eye out for "SEAN". If you are in the area, please consider POSTING a few fliers (I will mail them to you if you PM or email email@example.com).

A reporter recently asked my opinion of San Francisco Police’s search for Sean…..here are some thoughts.
Chief Tim Longo (of Virginia) is my HERO. For 35 days, the nation watched spellbound as Chief Longo, with heart and soul, led the search for missing U of VA student Hannah Graham. In the end, Chief Longo’s incredible determination resulted in the arrest of a suspect (possibly involved in several missing/murdered cases), the location of Hannah’s remains…& ANSWERS for Hannah’s family.
Truthfully, it is hard NOT to compare. Hard NOT to be bitter about the blatant disregard exhibited by SAN FRANCISCO Missing Persons Dept, in the search for SEAN, the CALIFORNIA MISSING FIVE & others (details omitted).
HOWEVER, ultimately it is the SYSTEM that is to blame. A SYSTEM that ALLOWED a less than motivated detective to CHOOSE to take a “wait & see” attitude rather than REQUIRING that certain search protocol be COMPETENTLY completed. A SYSTEM that allowed this detective to IGNORE dire warning by Chief of Neurosurgery at SF General to elevate Sean’s status due to a “high risk of death”.
My criticism of the SYSTEM however does not obviate our IMMENSE GRATITUDE to the many SAN FRANCISCO POLICE officers WHO helped search for Sean…who responded to the many sightings, who helped post SEAN’S fliers at the MUNI stations, who on their OWN time attended the vigils for Sean, who came up to me to express their SYMPATHY & who CONTINUE to keep an eye out for Sean… to THOSE officers - we are ETERNALLY GRATEFUL.

DERRICK'S CAR WAS FOUND IN FLORIDA, CONFIRMED SIGHTING IN LAS VEGAS & TODAY IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED THAT DERRICK WAS LOCATED IN SAN DIEGO. HE IS NOW IN A CALIFORNIA HOSPITAL, WITH HIS PARENTS EN ROUTE!! PRAYING FOR DERRICK'S RECOVERY!!!
Perhaps a miracle is ALSO possible for Sean!!!

As the mother of a missing child, I had hoped against hope that 21 year old college student Shane Montgomery, who went missing a month ago after leaving a bar, would be found alive.
Sadly, he was NOT. His family is nonetheless very thankful to the incredible people who helped bring Shane HOME. See www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Body-of-Missing-College-Student-Shane-Montgomery-Found-286962511.html
THE sheer RELIEF in finding a missing child/loved one (EVEN IF FOUND DECEASED), CAN ONLY BE FULLY APPRECIATED if you have suffered the AGONY of "not knowing" [where your child is], and endured the daily TORMENT of wondering whether you will EVER know.
The search for Shane, despite its tragic outcome, was a model of excellence & efficiency. From the start, law enforcement in PHILADELPHIA requested the help of the public (via media), obtained surveillance tapes & ENLISTED the ASSISTANCE OF THE FBI and K9 search and rescue teams. Helicopters were ALSO used in an effort to locate Shane.
San Francisco Missing Persons Dept should take NOTE. In Sean's case, & despite his life threatening brain injury, law enforcement in San Francisco ("LE") NEVER ever sought the public's help via media (our contacts did); LE declined to request the FBI's help and they REFUSED to allow Marin K-9 search and rescue team to enter SAN FRANCISCO to search for Sean (a private K9 team searched months later). SEAN'S correct Phone PING information was obtained by LE almost 2 weeks after Sean vanished, and ONLY after repeated requests by this family.
San Francisco is a model of INEFFICIENCY, the price for which Sean likely paid with his LIFE.
Sadly, this is more the RULE than the exception in San Francisco.
