Help find Sean Sidi

We need your help to find our son

A Letter to Sean, from Rachel

Dear Sean,

I can’t help but count the days since you’ve been gone and I cant help but cry when I think about your absence. We had such great times, it feels just like yesterday that we were feeding ducks at the pond, getting shave ice at Waiola and ganging up on Jason. Along with you being gone so much more is happening in my life and I need my big cousin to help me. You are one of the few people I tell everything to and feel comfortable doing so, which is why I need you here. Who else is supposed to help me in my last year of high school drama? Yes I still have Syd and everyone else but no one could replace you. Everyone is worried sick and we need to know you are safe. Where are you, Sean?

Pinning for Sean

Sean Sidi has been missing for 2 months and 4 days but we have not lost hope of finding him safe. During such a challenging time for the Sidi family, the outpouring of concern and those offering to help has been truly amazing, and a blessing to the Sidi family.

It is very important that we all continue to "share the word" that Sean is missing by distributing fliers in our communities, to shelters, food kitchens, churches, transportation centers, and hospitals. Fliers can be obtained by clicking on this link or we can mail fliers to you by emailing

You can also assist by helping us continue to to expand our social networking outreach. Please join us on Pinterest and begin "pinning" for Sean. With your help we will find Sean and bring him home safe!

Reaching Out for Sean - Follow us on Twitter

In order to find Sean we need your help. According to the FBI National Crime Information Center (NCIC) there were 85,890 active cases of missing persons in NCIC database as of June 29, 2013. Sean is just one of the thousands of missing persons in this country who have families desperately trying to find them and our hearts go out to each and every one of them.

To find missing persons it takes the help from not only law enforcement but assistance from media, advocates, nonprofit assistance agencies, and especially the public. Public outreach is vital to the search for Sean. You are our eyes and ears and with your help we will bring Sean home safe.

A Note from Sean's Dad

Hello supporters of FIND SEAN SIDI, We are starting a new phase of fundraising. We would like to raise funds to support further investigation, flyer production and bus and newspaper/online advertising. Our goal in this second phase of fundraising is to get Sean's missing person information on city buses, billboards and in newspapers. Please help us raise the additional dollars needed to support this. NOTE: Thank you to all the friends and family who have already supported us. Your friendship in this difficult time has kept us focused, perseverant, optimistic and grateful.

A Special Thank You


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:

We are hopeful that Sean will be home SOON to thank all of you in PERSON.
