Help find Sean Sidi

We need your help to find our son

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…."

Search for Sean Sidi 2015

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year,

We were away - nice but too much time to think, to miss Sean, to remember the 19 fabulous years with him....

We are still hoping for a miracle in 2015, but if that is not to be - then answers for us, and for others with missing loved ones.

A few old pictures of Sean & Danielle - I think Sean was @ 14 yrs, Danielle 11 yrs... Also a picture of Jeff K.'s precious Christmas gifts of warm beanies, socks (in Safeway bags) and SEAN's fliers to the kids living in Golden Gate Park.

Much Love to you All,

Lynn, Claude & Danielle

Thoughts re: Missing Sean SIDI

This was posted to FB Sunday night:

Nothing I can think to say or share seems right tonight.

I was remembering 19 years together as a very happy family, and how all that changed so abruptly in a day. My memories encompass Sean, our gentle, smiling boy, but most are of Sean and Danielle together...their mischievous laughter & non-stop our family seems so incomplete without Sean. I am not quite sure how we will manage to get through this.

Thank you to so many who help us keep the search for Sean alive..To Mahsa who posted Sean's fliers at Cal Train & the GIANTS game this weekend; to Jeff who distributed Sean's fliers on CAL TRAIN; to the caller who sent a photo of possible "Sean" this weekend; to JENNY & OPIE for covering the FEDERAL buildings, to Susan H for providing us with Sean's fliers at lower than cost, to SO VERY MANY of YOU, posting & sharing... Thank you.

CNN ireport re: Missing Sean SIDI


See CNN ireport re MISSING SEAN SIDI at:




A MINIMUM OF 5 families are waiting for news after human remains were found in a lake at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco....
"When a disappearance occurs, everything changes. The emotions of those who are left behind range from: sadness, guilt, hurt, anger, depression, hopelessness, apathy, rage, hysteria, to a lack of appetite and sleep. Nightmares& panic attacks.

With all of the above they must muster up the energy to search for their loved ones and somehow work. We see so many families using on social media, along with physically searching, hanging fliers, making phone calls, vigils, interviews with the media. It is truly like having two full time jobs.

Then the news, a body has been found.

“The Missing California Five” all vanished in San Francisco.

We were told the news last night that human remains were found in a small lake in Golden Gate Park. Please pray for these families right now, along for the family who we may not know as of yet. Thank you all for your continued support in helping to find these young male adults. Please Keep Sharing !"

Search for Sean SIDI - August 6, 2014

Last week, we and several hundred of SEAN'S Uncles, Aunts and Cousins from the Yan Quong Ching family - across the U.S. met in Hawaii for a family reunion (held every 2 years) spanning 5 days, and ending with a beach luau in Hauula!! So great to see everyone!! We would like to thank so many family members who have supported the SEARCH FOR SEAN over the last YEAR, and who came up to us during the reunion to offer words of support. 

Currently, we are preparing for the worst and hoping for the best as HURRICANE Iselle and Julio head towards Hawaii. The hurricanes will hopefully weaken to a survivable level….We are currently stocking food, filling containers with water & enjoying the LAST sunny day before the winds and rain HIT the island. 

We tried to fly out today to avoid the hurricane but could not secure a flight. Therefore, we join the masses in riding on the hurricane (hopefully not) or tropical storm (preferable to hurricane, but still scary)….. Thank you to JAN & FRED for housesitting! 

Regardless of how long we are hurricane bound, we HOPE that wherever you are - you will continue to search for SEAN. keep an eye out for him, and SHARE the posts. Recently, we received several comments regarding a GG park worker who believed she saw "Sean" near GG Park several months ago. This is unconfirmed. However, we will reinvigorate the search in this area in HOPES of reaching mobile street youth who many encounter Sean. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT SEAN'S BRAIN INJURY stacks the ODDS of survival against him as per his neurosurgeon. HE is NOT "VOLUNTARILY" MISSING. NOR IS HE AWARE OF HIS MEDICAL NEEDS. PLEASE TAKE A PICTURE AND SEND TO 415.713.5913 if there is even a 1% chance it is Sean.    Sean is 20 yrs old, 5'5", 120 lbs., Asian/White, wears silver dental braces, dk brown eyes & dk brown wavy hair, scar on right forehead from brain injury.
