Update re Search for Sean SIDI - July 4, 2016

This was posted on FB FindSeansidi last week: 

 

Some days I can't stand posting on Sean's page. It just reminds me how long we've been in hell - how long Sean' has been lost without us, and how long we've been without him - But I have no choice, because there is a chance that Sean is alive. SFPD recently issued another nationwide BOLO. 

4 tips received in last 4 months - thanks to those sharing and posting (♥ ANN A. Tina, Luana, & Leona (HI) & ALL): 2 tips discounted by photos; 1 from Colorado of a young man recently arrived from CA (no picture); and an interesting set of tips from Venice Beach area - So Cal - being monitored - will share soon.

On the flip side, CA Department of Justice ("DOJ") requested Sean's x-rays & medical records from his head injury - 2,000+ pages documenting a craniotomy and a cranioplasty (look it up) - The idea is - the x-rays/records will help identify Sean's body / remains - something you can never fully appreciate unless your child is missing. [Thanks to Sgt. Chris Long of SFPD for ensuring the info also gets to NamUs and NCIC - the federal databases.] 

Picture below was taken in 2012, Sean was 18 yrs and Danielle was 14yrs. And we were happy. 

See www.facebook.com/findseansidi or www.seansidi.com for more information about Sean SIDI, who vanished from San Francisco, CA (age 19) shortly after sustaining a traumatic brain injury. Sean may be homeless, lost without memory FAR from San Francisco.

From Danielle SIDI re: her brother MISSING SEAN SIDI

"My brother Sean had a creative mind that I always admired. He was an entrepreneur since childhood. When I was six and he was nine, he proposed for me to be his business partner. His Idea was to sell dog treats and tennis balls at the dog park across the street......our business flourished for years, until my brother’s intricate mind became bored of our childhood partnership... Later, I watched him as he applied his creativity towards coding and creating websites and video games. I would pull up a chair next to him in his bedroom each afternoon and watch him, intrigued by his outside the box intellect. He was my inspiration, and encouraged me to make use of my own creative mind.

Sean noticed how much I loved solving 3D puzzles and rubik’s cubes, so he decided to teach me to use ‘Sketchup’, a 3D modeling software. From there I fell in love with modeling and creating 3D structures. I would use balsa wood to build detailed models of houses that I had designed on Sketchup. With the help of my brother, I would create musical instruments, toy cars and robots…

On May 21st 2013, Sean went missing (from San Francisco, CA). Due to a severe brain injury that had occurred a couple months earlier, his chance of survival was very slim. I began to oscillate between denial and despair. Each day became more painful than the previous with the loss of my brother, best friend and idol. The unbearable pain of not knowing, not being allowed to accept his death, left me with nothing other than loneliness…."

 

Sean is still missing. Please keep an eye out for him as he may be without memory - FAR from home.

Sean SIDI Family Will Never Forget the Staff at San Francisco General Hospital

We were thrilled to hear of (FB's) Mark Zuckerberg & wife, Dr. Priscilla Chan's $75 million gift to SF General HOSPITAL. See http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Zuckerberg-wife-give-75-million-to-S-F-hospital-6065958.php.


WE will never forget the incredible doctors and nurses at SF GENERAL WHO worked around the clock for days to SAVE Sean's LIFE....that fateful day 2 yrs ago...when Sean arrived at SF's only LEVEL 1 TRAUMA CENTER -- IN a COMA, with a SHATTERED skull & many, many other injuries....racing towards DEATH.

Several months ago, near the time of Sean's 2 year 'anniversary' of his accident, I received a call from a nurse at SF General. She told me that SEVERAL of the nurses REMEMBERED that it had been 2 years since Sean's ACCIDENT, and that they wanted ME to know that THEY HAD NOT FORGOTTEN SEAN or our family.....I was incredibly touched by that call.

We HOPE with all our heart that ONE DAY we will be able to tell SF General (& all of YOU) that Sean has been FOUND..........Thank you all for continuing to support us in this effort!

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.

PICTURE BELOW: SOCKS CONTRIBUTED BY KERRIN T., a RECENT LAW SCHOOL GRADUATE. Thank you Kerrin!!!

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.

BELOW: Picture of Rayni from North Carolina. Rayni has an on-line business on Ebay. She so generously offered to insert Sean’s fliers in hundreds of packages mailed out to customers across the United States. Thank you RAYNI !!!!!!!!If .
