Help find Sean Sidi

We need your help to find our son

WHY ARE WE SEARCHING FOR SEAN SIDI?

 

It seems obvious to US why we are searching for Sean. However, a few (not many, but we felt we should address this) romantics (skeptics) have implied that Sean has left to start a new life, a life of independence. 

TO THOSE WHO QUESTION WHY WE ARE SEARCHING FOR SEAN, ASK YOURSELVES WHETHER YOU WOULD SEARCH FOR YOUR CHILD, UNDER THE FOLLOWING CIRCUMSTANCES:

1. Sean, age 19, has no need to 'run away'. He is legally an adult.

2. On May 21, 2013, the day that Sean vanished without a trace, Sean made an appointment with his teacher to return to school the next day to upload some films (i.e. Sean INTENDED TO RETURN THE NEXT DAY). Sean's teacher has confirmed this.

3. Sean's cell phone, bank card, email, facebook and all electronic means of communication have NOT been accessed since he vanished. For those who know Sean, this in and of itself is a BIG WORRY. Point and case, shortly after emerging from his coma after the accident, and barely able to walk, or open his eyes, Sean asked for his cell phone. 

4. Sean's neurosurgeon has confirmed in writing to San Francisco Police that Sean's medical condition puts him at RISK OF DEATH (on the streets). Sean's doctors have also confirmed that Sean's severe traumatic brain injury puts him at risk of OTHER COMPLICATIONS (i.e. seizures, memory loss, etc).

To date there has been NO confirmed sighting of Sean (SAR finding or not). IF Sean is still alive, and based on information from doctors, we anticipate that Sean is not cognizant of his circumstance (i.e. TOO ILL to know that he needs help) and in need of medical care. 

Upon finding Sean, and upon medical opinion that Sean is physically and mentally sound, we will (as we have for Sean's ENTIRE life) support Sean in his endeavors - whatever that may be.

UNTIL THEN, we will continue to search for Sean (SIDI).

In Hope,

Lynn and Claude Sidi

SEAN SIDI FAMILY SEARCH PLANS JANUARY 2014

Dear Friends & Family,

In view of the search and rescue (SAR) team’s ‘strong scent’ recent find of Sean (see post of Dec 28, 2013), we are  seeking HELP posting Sean’s fliers.  THE FLIERS PLAY A CRUCIAL PART IN LOCATING SEAN.    

 

1.  THOSE LIVING OR WORKING IN SAN FRANCISCO:  

Fliers are pulled down by street cleaners within days of being posted.    Therefore, this time around, we would like to try the following (in addition to those who are so generously posting in a given area- thank you!!):

 

**** We are seeking help from as many people as possible to  POST JUST A FEW (3 OR 4)  of SEANS FLIERS on your weekly route –  and TO REPOST THE FLIERS AS NEEDED (i.e. as they are torn down), UNTIL SEAN IS FOUND.   If possible, please message or email lynnkching@yahoo.com, so that the GRID MAP can be completed.  The goal is to get most San Francisco streets posted with at least 1 of Sean’s Missing Person Flier.

 

2.  THOSE LIVING IN MARIN OR SONOMA COUNTY, NORTH ALONG HWY 1 OR 101.

 

There are various tips which make the Hwy 101 & Hwy 1 corridor (NORTH THRU MARIN AND SONOMA COUNTY) a posting priority (at this time) ALONG with San Francisco:   PLEASE POST IN THE CITIES IN MARIN AND SONOMA.  MANY PEOPLE LIVING HERE ARE NOT AWARE THAT SEAN IS CRITICALLY MISSING. 

 

3.   ELSEWHERE IN CALIFORNIA OR THE USA.  – PLEASE POST!!!!

 

YOUR FLIER MAY BE THE ONE THAT BRINGS SEAN HOME TO US, SAFE~!!

 

We will provide more information regarding tips received and upcoming plans, in the days to come.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!!!

IN HOPE,

SEAN SIDI’S FAMILY

SEARCH AND RESCUE DOGS PICK UP SEAN SIDI’S SCENT

SEARCH AND RESCUE DOGS PICK UP SEAN SIDI’S SCENT – PLEASE SHARE

Given Sean’s traumatic brain injury and other pre-existing medical conditions at the time Sean went missing from San Francisco, CA on May 21, 2013, there was serious concern whether Sean was still alive.

 

Last week, a search and rescue dog team came to San Francisco to search for Sean.  This team has worked with the FBI on many missing person cases.  To our amazement, the dogs made a “strong scent” find [of Sean] in various parts of San Francisco.  The strong scent finds occurred -  near and around hippy hill (Golden Gate Park;  near and around the small park at Octavia/Fell;  near and around the Presidio near Mountain Lake;  near and around 1801 Wedemeyer (in the Presidio); and near and around Lake Street between 11th and 15th Avenue. 

 

We have been informed that a “strong scent” find means that an item belonging to Sean or Sean himself was at the “find site” WITHIN 6 WEEKS of the find (scent would fade after 6 weeks).   While there is always room for error, the lead handler said that based on the dogs’ behavior, she strongly believes that the dogs had picked up Sean’s (and not someone else’s) scent.

 

In the context of other tips received, we are SEEKING HELP IN POSTING SEAN’S FLIERS ANYWHERE THAT YOU MAY BE LOCATED, WITH A FOCUS (1) IN SAN FRANCISCO AND (2) ALONG HWY 1 & HWY 101 NORTH THROUGH MARIN & SONOMA COUNTY. 

 

The dogs’ “find” has given us hope that Sean is still alive.  On the other hand, comments from those providing tips indicate that “Sean” appears in need of medical care.  

 

PLEASE SHARE THIS POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.  IF YOU CAN, PLEASE HELP POST SEAN’S FLIERS. 

 

To have Sean’s missing person fliers mailed to you, email lynnkching@yahoo.com.   Fliers can also downloaded from www.seansidi.com or www.facebook.com/findseansidi.

A PROMISE TO SEAN SIDI'S SISTER, DANIELLE SIDI

 

We have lived the past 7 months as best as we can, searching for Sean and trying desperately to keep hope alive.  While Sean's disappearance has been hard on us (his parents) - it has been even harder in many ways - on Sean's sister and best friend, Danielle.  The littlest things such as eating otter pops on a hot Hawaiian day, remind us all of the many laughs and precious moments shared by Sean and Danielle over 15 years.  Sean, the unfailing leader of mischief making, and Danielle his devoted accomplice.

We have promised Danielle that we will NEVER stop searching for her beloved brother.

Sean is much missed and loved,

Danielle, Lynn & Claude Sidi

THANKS TO EVERYONE POSTING SEAN SIDI'S FLIERS

At this juncture we remain hopeful that Sean is still alive.   While none of the recent sightings have been confirmed (by someone who knows Sean personally), many of the tips have referenced a young man who is need of medical care.

 

Your help in posting Sean's missing person flier in San Francisco, up the Hwy 101 & Hwy 1 Marin/Sonoma corridor & beyond, greatly increases our chances of finding Sean in time.

 

Thank you for all your help!

 

The Sidi Family

URGENT!! HELP NEEDED POSTING SEAN SIDI'S FLIERS THROUGHOUT MARIN AND SONOMA COUNTY

Dear Sean Sidi Friends and Family,

 

We urgently need your help!!   Over the last several weeks, we have received various sightings of "Sean".  Some have been several months old, others more recent.  While NONE of the sightings have been confirmed (i.e identified by someone who knows Sean personally), based on information received, we have reason to believe that Sean is currently alive - though NOT WELL (this is based on sighting information).

 

We ALSO have reason to believe that "Sean" (who may or may not be with others) may be traveling either on Hwy 101 or Hwy 1 through Sonoma and Marin County in the near future.

 

WE ARE DESPERATELY SEEKING HELP POSTING SEAN'S MISSING PERSON FLIERS THROUGHOUT MARIN, NOVATO, PETALUMA, SANTA ROSA,, AND NORTH UP HWY 101 and HYW 1.

 

IF YOU OR ANYONE YOU KNOW CAN HELP POST SEAN'S FLIERS IN THESE AREAS, WE WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT.

 

PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH ANYONE (or any organizations) YOU KNOW - WHO COULD HELP.

 

Sean's missing person fliers can be obtained by emailing lynnkching@yahoo.com.
