Help find Sean Sidi

We need your help to find our son

November 1, 2015 - Search for Sean SIDI CONTINUES

I hope you had a wonderful Halloween. 

To those who have messaged me, all tips with any substance are posted. We are following one piece of information that came in but will only post if it points to Sean. 

However LONG it takes, and WHATEVER the outcome, we need answers --- for us, for Danielle (Sean's sister) for Sean's friends and family & for the community. 

Most of you know that Sean's case is not isolated. While the 8 cases (5 missing + 3 missing/found deceased) may or may not be related, TO DATE there have been NO ANSWERS (as far as I know) to ANY of these cases... (See the link below if this is new to you.)

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/…/missing-san-francisco-m…/

Hopefully, between all of us: LE, Media, Public - ANSWERS will be forthcoming one day..... In the meantime, we do our best to HOLD onto HOPE.

As my cousin Rowell Ching told me yesterday, 

"Miracles CAN and DO happen." We hope and pray they do....

Please keep an eye out for Sean - who may be lost amongst the homeless with no memory - very FAR from S.F..

October 18, 2015 - Search for Sean SIDI Continues

I duplicate most of the posts on www.facebook.com/findseansidi.   However, not all of the articles or comments (of hundreds) can be shared.  If you'd like to access it, Sean's FB page is set up as a public page and you should be able to access it without a FB account.   If you try it and have problems, please let me know.   lynnkching@yahoo.com. 

Here is the FB Post of Saturday, 10/17/2015:

It has been 2 Years, 4 Months, 26 Days, since I last saw and hugged Sean. 

There has been NO "dimming" of anguish or pain, NOR will there be, UNTIL we "know"....

Every so often, the veneer of cheer and normalcy that we both "put on'" each day - cracks.....It took me off guard when Claude, who is particularly good at masking his pain with smiles - on our drive to work - said out of the blue......."It's a miracle we haven't yet had a nervous breakdown..."

I couldn't have stated it up more succinctly myself..

Thanks for listening, sharing, caring, posting, & keeping an eye out for Sean.   We could not have made it this far without the support and love so many of you have extended to our family.  

 

Below: Fliers of Sean still being posted thanks to many. Here are a FEW: Fairfax Roastery, CA (♥ Tina!); San Leandro, CA (♥ Ann A); EBAY STORE 'Raynibo' of Bo's Boutique sending Sean's flier across the country (♥ Rayni!); Ellen B who distributed Fliers in Nashville N.C., (no pic).

Search for SEAN SIDI - September 21, 2015 (reposted)

It's difficult to acknowledge the passing of time. Almost 2.5 years since we last saw Sean, our smiley, funny, charming boy... We survive the best we can...

Thanks for checking back & keeping us and Sean in mind. Two "tips" were called in this week, but both from people who saw "Sean" some time before they saw the FLIER. I've asked them to send a PHOTO if they see "Sean" again & will post (only) if more substance emerges.

More pics of Sean, during the many happy times in... his life.

To Ann, Tina, Rayni, Ellen and ALL still POSTING (& sharing on FB) Sean's FLIERS - THANK YOU!

VIDEO POSTED - Search for SEAN SIDI - September 6 2015 -

We hope you all enjoyed the long weekend.

 

Unfortunately, we have no new news. The 2+ year search for Sean has yielded NO confirmed sighting of Sean, and we do NOT know whether Sean is alive, or WHAT happened on May 21, 2013 when his phone was turned off/went dead (the latter we doubt). 

 

If god forbid - the search for Sean OUTLIVES Claude and me, we hope that you will continue to assist Sean's beloved sister - Danielle (pictured in many of the photos) in getting answers. 

 

To our friends & family - who have set aside their own discomfort to SHARE & SPEAK with us of their fond MEMORIES of Sean, who go out of their way to ASK about the search for Sean, we thank you for your PRICELESS GIFT. To All of YOU - who have HELPED us keep the search FOR Sean from going COLD - THANK YOU.  

 

I am reposting this video of Sean, made with generosity by Trisha, mother of MISSING (from San Francisco) SHAWN DICKERSON. Trisha has somehow captured the LOVE that embraced Sean his entire life...and Sean's LOVE of family/friends & LIFE.  Thank you Trisha!

August 22, 2015 Update re: Oceanside, CA Search for SEAN SIDI

The surveillance shots we viewed (at Vista Sprinter Station) based on the caller's time, place etc. - were NOT Sean. We emailed the shots to the person who CALLED IN the sighting and he does not believe the screen shots (we sent 2 different persons) was the "Sean" that he saw..however, we did not see any other 'match'. The code enforcement officer did not recall speaking to someone meeting our Sean's description. Therefore, and while the search continues in Oceanside, CA - the sighting remains UNCONFIRMED. 

We don't know how our "story" will end. We do know that we have to pursue every viable lead, because the ONE time that we DON'T follow a lead - is the 1 time that it WILL be SEAN. 

PHOTOS remain the best way to confirm a sighting. ANY PHOTO at ANY ANGLE (send 415.713.5913). BEST WAYS TO SPOT SEAN:

1. BIG HAIR - WAVY & BIG when LONG. SEE PHOTO of Sean's dad and Sean as baby. Compare to photo with SHORT hair (PHOTO). 

2. DIMPLES - Law enforcement commented how obvious these were even when Sean is NOT smiling.

3. BRACES - If they are still on - they are silver.

4. BI-LINGUAL IN FRENCH - If you speak to Sean in French, particularly if you are a native speaker, he will almost ALWAYS respond in French...

5. OTHER: slim build, right eye droops slightly, bump on right forehead from accident. He may NOT know his name.

6. ANYWHERE - CASES have proven - missing persons, particularly those with head injuries, can end up VERY FAR from home, even with no money. 

Thank you ALL for your help, prayers and support.

Lynn, Claude & Danielle SIDI

STATUS of Sean SIDI Sightings in Oceanside, CA

NEW INFORMATION re Oceanside Sighting of Sean SIDI

 

NEW INFO for 3rd sighting: The person who called in the 3rd sighting of "Sean" at the East bound Sprinter has confirmed the LOCATION of the sprinter station that he saw "Sean" (on Sat 8/8) as - OLIVE and E Vista Way, which I have been told is in VISTA CA next to Oceanside.. This information will hopefully make it possible to locate "Sean" on surveillance tapes. We will keep you updated. 

 

STATUS OF 2ND SIGHTING: Unfortunately, the caller who called in the 2nd sighting of "Sean" at an assembly of Jehovah's Witnesses in/near Oceanside, CA, has not called me back. Fliers have been distributed to the Kingdom Halls in the area. 

We contacted Tri City Hospital and await a response as to whether Sean or anyone meeting his description was treated there. 

Thank you to so many who have helped us spread the word to friends & family and/or have posted/distributed Sean's fliers. We will update you with any new developments. 

If you need/want more fliers mailed to you, please PM or email lynnkching@yahoo.com with your mailing address.
