On, May 21, 2013, the day that Sean vanished, he was not feeling well. He asked me, ‘Why do I feel so bad?’ I gave Sean a big hug before leaving the house to drop his sister Danielle at school. But somehow I knew that something was very wrong, and returned home to check on Sean, rather than continuing on to work. However, it was too late. Sean had already left the house when I arrived home. That was the last time that I saw Sean.
Almost 10 months have passed sinc...e Sean vanished from San Francisco, CA on May 21, 2013. While the trail has not gone completely cold, we have yet to receive 1 confirmed sighting of Sean. Our hearts ache so much for Sean. We try to maintain hope, but it is not easy as we know that Sean has not used his cell phone, bank card, email or FB account since he went missing. This is never a good sign. We are also acutely aware of Sean’s fragile physical and cognitive state – still in the early stages of recovering from a horrific accident that nearly killed him - just 6 months earlier.
We are doing our best to keep the search for Sean going, but this gets harder as time passes. We think that our ONLY hope of finding Sean, in time, is prayer, luck and the distribution and posting of Sean’s fliers – as far and wide - as possible.
We are thankful to those of you who are still posting Sean’s fliers & sharing our posts. Without you we would not be able to keep the search for Sean alive…We would be very grateful if you would share this post in hopes that someone will recognize Sean, and call us.
We have printed Sean’s fliers in BULK and would be happy to mail a packet of fliers to anyone, anywhere in the U.S., if you email email@example.com with your address. You may also send a message on FB.

On Sunday 2/2/2014, someone called in a sighting of a very sick young man after seeing Sean’s missing person flier (though sighting of someone w/very short hair). Many volunteers - including veterans living in the area - continue to search for Sean, and post his fliers. Some of you have reported that several homeless individuals claimed to have seen Sean in the area. However, at this point the Venice Beach sighting remains UNCONFIRMED.
Some are skeptical that Sean could have traveled so far in his fragile medical state. The truth is – from what we have learned of the transportation networks used by those living on the streets (and assuming someone took Sean with them) Sean could be much farther. However, it is also true that Sean was very, very ill when he vanished 8 months ago…..and each day weighs heavily.
PLEASE HELP US POST (& REPOST) A FEW OF SEANS FLIERS ANYWHERE IN THE U.S. Please keep an eye out for Sean, particularly among the homeless – WHEREVER you may be.

THANK YOU ALL!!
Thank you to everyone who came out to post Sean's fliers on Sunday, and to the many, many people who are helping spread the word about the search for Sean. Your help in posting fliers in San Francisco and beyond - is working. San Francisco residents have reported spotting Sean's fliers in other states. Each flier posted, each Facebook post shared, each tweet sent . . . brings Sean one step closer to being reunited with his family and friends.
We will mail fliers to anyone requesting them. For fliers, please email: email@example.com.
We are hopeful that Sean will be home SOON to thank all of you in PERSON.

We would like to thank the KlaasKids Foundation and each and every volunteer who came out to search for our son Sean on Sunday in Golden Gate Park, the location of Sean's last cell phone call before he vanished on May 21st. We were overwhelmed by the hundreds of volunteers who joined in the search for Sean.
While search teams located items of interest such as pieces of clothing and cell phones, at this juncture, none appear to belong to Sean or provide clues to Sean's whereabouts.
We would like to reach out to everyone to continue spreading the word about Sean, both in San Francisco and in the outlying areas of the Bay Area. You can continue helping by keeping an eye out for Sean, posting flyers in your neighborhood, and sharing/re-posting Sean's Facebook link (Find Sean Sidi) with friends. Also, if you are on twitter, please tweet a link to the Facebook Page:
Please help us find SF teenage with brain injury #seansidi <https://twitter.com/search?q=%23seansidi>. Info: http://on.fb.me/18SEOlF Please RT
Because of his brain injury, Sean may be unable to seek help on his own so your help is crucial.
