Last week we asked Captain McFadden, Commander of the Special Victims / Missing Persons Unit to authorize a statewide BOLO (Be on the Lookout) for Sean SIDI. This had been recommended by various law enforcement agencies.
TODAY, Captain McFadden confirmed that SFPD has re-issued a statewide APB (All Points Bulletin) NetFlyer for Sean.
THANK YOU CAPTAIN McFADDEN AND SAN FRANCISCO POLICE FOR ALERTING LAW ENFORCEMENT THROUGHOUT CALIFORNIA - OF THE SEARCH FOR SEAN SIDI!!!

In an effort to locate Sean (SIDI) in time, we have asked San Francisco Police to issue a statewide BOLO (Be on The Lookout) in California, for Sean, age 19, missing from San Francisco CA since May 21, 2013. Below are excerpts of the email we sent to Captain McFadden TODAY. Captain McFadden replaced Captain Jason Fox - who previously handled Sean's case.
WE AWAIT SFPD'S RESPONSE...and will let you know.
Re: Request for... Statewide BOLO for Brain Injured Teen, Sean SIDI
Dear Captain McFadden,
I am the parent of (brain injured teen), Sean SIDI, who has been missing from San Francisco since May 21, 2013.... The purpose of this letter is to request that the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) issue a STATEWIDE ‘Be On the Look Out” (BOLO) for Sean (SIDI). Sean, who is considered “At Risk” by SFPD has now been missing for over 8 months. Per a letter provided SFPD by Dr. Geoff Manley, Sean’s neurosurgeon, Sean’s pre-existing medical condition puts him at high risk of death on the streets.
The issuance of a current statewide BOLO has been strongly recommended by various law enforcement persons in other jurisdictions who we have encountered in the search for Sean…..
During our last meeting with Captain Fox in September 2013, he mentioned that the search for Sean – just 4 months old at that time - was in its early stages, in the context of a missing person’s case. Captain Fox was right. Now - over eight months after Sean went missing – we have yet to find Sean or answers to Sean’s disappearance on May 21, 2013.
..........However, despite the efforts of so many, we believe that the assistance of law enforcement is CRUCIAL in the search for Sean (SIDI). To that end, we are requesting that SFPD issue a statewide BOLO for Sean SIDI.
We fervently hope that you will consider this request. We would be very grateful if you would let us know your decision.
