Thanks to fliers being posted by all of you, tips continue to be called in. Two tips were called in over the last 3 days. 1 tip was called in from Novato and 1 from San Francisco. In both cases, the caller thought the person they saw resembled Sean - but was not sure. (THANK YOU to those who called in the tips!!)
WE DESPERATELY NEED A CONFIRMED SIGHTING OF SEAN.
IF YOU THINK THAT SOMEONE RESEMBLES SEAN, PLEASE TAKE A PICTURE WITH YOUR CELL PHONE. TEXT THE PICTURE TO 415.713.5913 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. NOTE THE LOCATION, DATE AND EXACT TIME OF THE SEAN SIGHTING. PLEASE CALL ALL TIPS IN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
MANY PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME THEY KEEP A PICTURE OF SEAN'S FLIER AND STORE IT IN THEIR CELL PHONE FOR REFERENCE.
We know that it is NOT easy to recognize Sean, and that some of you have gone to extreme lengths to help us find Sean. One person stopped his car in the middle of traffic, before the on- ramp (in SF) to the freeway, blocked traffic, and ran across several lanes of traffic, when he thought he saw "SEAN". Upon catching up with "SEAN" and taking a closer look, he realized that he was mistaken. By that time a police officer was running towards him. Fortunately, for him - when explaining why he had stopped his car in the middle of traffic - the POLICE recognized the name (Missing) Sean SIDI, and let him go with a stern warning!
We do not have many post-injury photos of Sean, but have posted as many as we have. Below is a description of SEAN SIDI, missing from San Francisco, CA May 21, 2013:
Sean is 19 yrs old, Asian/White 5'5", 120 lbs slim build;
dark brown eyes; dark brown WAVY hair (AFRO if untrimmed);
BUMP on right forehead from brain surgery;
wears SILVER DENTAL BRACES;
RIGHT eye droops slightly;

Weighed down with the flu, and paralyzed with the fear of never finding Sean (Sidi), I found it difficult to do anything this week but despair....An email received tonight from Sandra M. has once again reminded me that Claude and I are not alone in our desperate and sometimes, lonely search to find Sean. Below is Sandra's letter of hope.
I spent some time Tuesday distributing fliers around Laurel Village, Masonic, Golden Gate Park and along Haight Street. I spoke to young street people, older people, and everyone in between. The overwhelming majority of people I encountered with Sean's story, I would venture 90%+, had heard about Sean and had seen your fliers. Remarkable! I felt very encouraged by this news, your efforts in getting the word out about Sean will payoff. I enlisted each of the people I met on our search. I asked them to look at Sean's sweet face and remember the braces, possible big hair, and the possibility of him traveling with an older man and asked them to call 911 if they think they see him and not to leave him. I will continue to check on our fliers to ensure they haven't been taken down and distribute to friends in Sonoma County and elsewhere in the Bay Area.
Peets has distribute the flier to all of its SF stores, I'm trying to get the district Mgr to distribute further. I am waiting to hear back from Starbucks. Both coffee shops at Laurel Village have been given a flier and have posted in their employee break room. I've asked personnel at a few hospitals to post Sean's flier in their employee break rooms and ERs. I asked Target and Trader Joe's on Masonic to do the same (they have a lot of employees! maybe someone will recognize Sean). The 76 station on California/Arguelo has posted the flier. I posted Sean's flier in several bus shelters in SF. As I come across other high traffic intersections, I will continue to post.
Thinking and praying for your entire family daily. You are not alone in your search. Keep your spirits up, we will find him, I'm certain of it.
In hope and continued prayer,
Thank you Sandra and to ALL OF YOU - who give us HOPE that we will one day hold Sean in our arms again...We could not possibly find Sean without your help.
With Much Gratitude,
Lynn & Claude

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.

DUE TO SEAN'S BRAIN INJURY AND OTHER MEDICAL ISSUES, SEAN VERY LIKELY DOES NOT KNOW WHO OR WHERE HE IS. HE NEEDS US TO FIND HIM....
When Sean first went missing on May 21, 2013, Klaas Kids Foundation told us to cast the net for Sean, FAR AND WIDE. They told us of a case very similar to Sean's, of a 20 year old young man in California who had suffered a traumatic brain injury, lost his memory, and ended up in another STATE, with NO MONEY, within 3 days!!!!
This family was very lucky that a concerned citizen noticed that this young man needed help. Please HELP US SPREAD WORD ABOUT OUR SEARCH FOR SEAN by sharing, posting fliers, and helping us in our mass mailing campaigns to hospitals and homeless shelters across the nation. We can only locate Sean if EVERYONE knows that Sean is missing!
See www.facebook.com/findseansidi or www.seansidi.com for more information about the search for 19 year old Sean SIDI. Email email@example.com for fliers and/or if you would like to help in the mass mailing campaign.
