Several months before Sean went missing on May 21, 2013, he sustained a severe traumatic brain injury in an accident. In this accident, Sean completely shattered the right side of his skull and fractured so many bones in his body that it was hard to imagine that he could survive. It was touch and go for a week as Sean fought for his life. Thanks to the extraordinary skill of the neurosurgeons at San Francisco General Hospital, the impeccable and compassionate care by ICU nurses, and the incredible resilience of youth – Sean, by some miracle, SURVIVED.
I will never forget Sean’s first words, which he weakly whispered to the nurses upon emerging from his coma….
He said, “I WANT MY MOTHER.”
It is beyond comprehension that my beautiful son would survive such a horrific accident, only to be torn from my life several months later, when on May 21, 2013 - Sean vanished without a trace from San Francisco. Every night, I think of Sean, alone on the streets - wondering whether he is cold and hungry, wondering how long he can hang on, and whether he is asking for me...
Sean’s neurosurgeon says that as a missing person, Sean is at high risk of death due to his medical condition. We are trying desperately to find Sean, in time. We cannot possibly find Sean on our own. Only with everyone’s help do we stand a chance of locating Sean, in time, to bring him home safe and sound.
PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT OUR SEARCH FOR SEAN. YOU CAN HELP BY:
1. POSTING SEAN’S FLIERS (download or email firstname.lastname@example.org for fliers) – IN and OUT of San Francisco. There are still SO MANY people who do not know that Sean is MISSING.
2. SHARING SEAN’S FACEBOOK POSTS, TWEETING etc.
3. MOST IMPORTANTLY, YOU CAN HELP BY KEEPING A LOOKOUT FOR SEAN, WHO MAY BE DISORIENTED, UNKEMPT AND WANDERING THE STREETS UNABLE TO ASK FOR HELP. Remember, Sean has dimples and silver dental braces. HE COULD BE IN SAN FRANCISCO OR NOT. WE JUST DO NOT KNOW.
