Help find Sean Sidi

We need your help to find our son

HELP Us Re-Tweet Posts from @FindSeanSidi

Below is a story about a dad in China who used the Chinese version of Twitter to locate his abducted son.  It took him 3 years to spread the word and find his son, but he did it!! 

In an effort to further spread the word about the search for Sean SIDI, next week we will begin Tweeting all posts to Sean's Twitter account at @FindSeanSidi.   Please help us spread the word about Sean by re-tweeting.

As some of you know, our son, Sean (age 19) survived a horrendous accident, several months before he went missing without a trace from San Francisco, CA on May 21, 2013. In this accident, Sean completely shattered his skull, suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, and fractured many bones throughout his face and body.   Sean was in a coma for a week, and it was unknown whether he would live.   Thanks to the extraordinary skill of the neurosurgeons at SF General, the resilience of youth, AND LUCK - Sean survived – WITH the potential for a meaningful and normal life.
Sean’s survival WAS a MIRACLE.  
While Sean was making good progress at the time he went missing on May 21, 2013, he was still in the very early stages of recovery.   Doctors have warned that due to his medical condition, Sean is at SIGNIFICANT RISK of death as a missing person, if we do not find him “soon”.    We do not know whether “soon” has come and gone.  We do know that Sean is still missing, and that our search for Sean will continue for as long as it takes to find him. 
HELP MAKE US FIND SEAN IN TIME  (THE SECOND MIRACLE) by SHARING Sean’s FLIER with everyone you know in the United States, and keeping an eye out for SEAN.  Due to his recent head injury, and risk of related complications (memory loss, etc.)  Sean could be far from San Francisco (if he was given a ride), and not know who or where he is.  
For more information on our desperate search for Sean who vanished from San Francisco, CA on May 21, 2013 without a trace, see   Sean is 19 yrs old, 5’5” and 120 lbs. He is of Asian/Caucasian ethnicity, has dark brown wavy hair, WEARS SILVER DENTAL BRACES, has dimples, right eye droops slightly, has scar/bump on right forehead from brain surgery.  Sean could have been given a ride very far from San Francisco.  Please take Sean to the hospital and call his parents at 415.713.5913 if you see Sean.

October 21, 2013 marks 5 months since Sean vanished without a trace. There has been on activity on Sean’s bank card or cell phone since he vanished on May 21, 2013 from San Francisco, CA without a trace. 

We are mindful that each day may make the difference between life and death for Sean, given his precarious medical condition at the time he went missing. For us, the days only get harder – much, much harder. We are thankful to all of you, and to our friends, family and co-workers who have provided on-going support and encouragement during this difficult time. We do not know when this nightmare will end, and we pray for the sanity and strength to continue the search for Sean for as long as it takes. 

We DO know with certainty that Sean will only be found if people know that he is missing. Spreading the word has not been easy, and gets harder with time. We desperately need help keeping Sean’s fliers posted in San Francisco AND all over California and the United States. 

If you would like to help in the search for Sean, we are asking that you pick ONE LOCATION on your weekly route (church, walking to the bus stop, etc.) and KEEP SEAN’S FLIER POSTED in that ONE LOCATION until SEAN IS FOUND. We do not know how long this will take.....

We DO KNOW that it will take a “village” to find Sean. 

Your POSTING 1 FLIER, and keeping that 1 FLIER UP, can make all the difference in the search for Sean.

We will gladly mail you a supply of Sean’s fliers. Please email lynnkching@yahoo.comwith your mailing address for fliers. For those in wet locations, we will mail fliers and waterproof covers, as requested.

With Gratitude,

Lynn and Claude

As many of you know, Sean, our 19 year old son, survived a horrific accident and a severe traumatic brain injury, ONLY to vanish from San Francisco, CA without a trace several months later on May 21, 2013. See and for details.
While doctors have warned that Sean’s medical condition puts him a risk of death and we cannot imagine how Sean could still be alive given his precarious medical state, many of you have shared real life stories of HOPE.
Mahsa Hakim recently said, “On my week end trip to Maui, I heard an amazing story of a local homeless man who happened to gain his memory back with a help of a local church. He was originally from California and lost his memory in an accident and he was offered a one way ticket to Maui.  I did some search online and I also read a story of a lawyer from New York who lost his memory and ended up in Chicago. His picture was shown on America's Most Wanted and he was was found with a help of homeless shelter he was at.  Is there anyway to organize a nation-wide search of the homeless shelters or have his picture shown in National TV? Please let me know if I can be of any help.”

Sean may be in a homeless shelter anywhere in the United States. Commencing next week, we will send Sean’s flier to every homeless shelter, and soup kitchen in the United States. If you would like to help in this effort and can MAIL or deliver fliers to a homeless shelter or soup kitchen in your city or county, please contact  We will gladly mail you fliers (and stamps), or you may download them from or   I will contact those of you who have previously offered to help with the CAMPAIGN OF HOPE.
