Search for SEAN SIDI - September 21, 2015 (reposted)

It's difficult to acknowledge the passing of time. Almost 2.5 years since we last saw Sean, our smiley, funny, charming boy... We survive the best we can...

Thanks for checking back & keeping us and Sean in mind. Two "tips" were called in this week, but both from people who saw "Sean" some time before they saw the FLIER. I've asked them to send a PHOTO if they see "Sean" again & will post (only) if more substance emerges.

More pics of Sean, during the many happy times in... his life.

To Ann, Tina, Rayni, Ellen and ALL still POSTING (& sharing on FB) Sean's FLIERS - THANK YOU!

see or for more information on Sean SIDI, age 19 (time of missing) who vanished from San Francisco, CA on May 21, 2013, shortly after sustaining a traumatic brain injury. Sean may be lost amongst the homeless, without memory - VERY FAR from home. Please keep an eye out for him

California Superior Court Weighs in on the Search for Sean SIDI


Summary:   Given CALIFORNIA Superior Court's recent ORDER re: Sean, we are seeking INPUT from those with contacts or familiarity with hospitals and/or psychiatric facilities (anywhere in the U.S.), to help us ascertain the right persons/department to send the COURT ORDER & Sean's flier.......See details below. 



Dear Friends,


As most of you know, Sean suffered a serious brain injury a few months before he went missing on May 21, 2013. If Sean is alive, it is very likely he accessed (or will access) medical care. However, it is also likely that HIPPA privacy laws would prevent hospitals from contacting us and/or releasing information. **** See real-life story of another family below.


Recognizing Sean's fragility, the California Superior COURT in San Francisco recently issued a VERY unusual ORDER which sidesteps HIPPA & authorizes health care providers that have treated SEAN - to RELEASE Sean's medical information (including any information indicating he has recently been treated) to Lynn, his mother. The order will also allow us to speak with Sean's doctors & plan a course of care before & after Sean is located. 


In an attempt to LOCATE Sean, we intend to send Sean's FLIER & the COURT's ORDER TO MEDICAL & PSYCHIATRIC FACILITIES across the U.S., starting with CALIFORNIA. 


HOWEVER, the BIG CHALLENGE is routing the COURT ORDER to the RIGHT PERSON or department at the medical facility who will check whether Sean previously accessed medical care AND who will RED FLAG Sean's name (or any John Doe matching his description), in the event that Sean LATER accesses medical care. (Sean does have very good medical insurance.)


If you have experience working with  hospitals and/or any psychiatric clinic system, county or private, we would greatly appreciate your input, feedback, and guidance in this matter.  

Please email


Thank you ALL!


****Many other families searching for loved ones - face this problem with the HIPPA privacy laws. See for one real life story,  Jason was recently found in San Diego, 2 years after going missing from ILL.   Jason's mom posts about specific issues related to the HIPPA laws when trying to advocate for her son's care.

There is not a day that goes by that Claude and I do not grieve for Sean, our beloved first child.

To hear that someone within an “AGENCY” (to remain unnamed for now) recently parroted a false & malicious rumor about Sean in conversation with MEDIA was the LAST STRAW. The FALSE rumor, without basis, labeled Sean as “having connections within a TAGGING community” (i.e. one that defaces, or “tags” public property).


To those seeking to discredit Sean, it would behoove you to CONSULT THE RECORD, first before spreading slanderous rumors.

Sean was NOT a ‘child’ of destruction, but a creator of FILMS, websites and businesses. While in middle and high school, Sean co-founded & managed a successful online game & marketed his technological savvy to create WEBSITES for small businesses (for a FEE). He often used the proceeds from his business endeavors to fund another INTEREST – that of investing in stocks of the future (FB included). Sean volunteered as the Website Manager of Diasporic Vietnamese Artist Netowrk. He is bilingual in French, earning an International Baccalaureate (IB) from the ‘International High School in San Francisco, prior to enrolling at the U of Colorado at Boulder.

Sean’s interests included GYMNASTICS, Film Making, AIKIDO, soccer, SKIING, & boogie boarding.

It did NOT include tagging.
