Search for Sean SIDI - July 27, 2014

Today, Claude (Sean's dad), Danielle (Sean's sister) and Danielle's friends are out water skiing, swimming and tubing on Lake Sonoma. It makes me happy to know that Danielle is smiling and laughing with her friends...

I am desperately working on regaining some sense of ...?? healing?? happiness?? Not sure what the words are. Unfortunately, I do not know if that is possible given the depth of my sense of loss.

I thought I knew love - until Sean (my firstborn) & his sister arrived.. There are no words to describe THAT feeling is there? That - that love could burn even brighter and stronger as time passed - was amazing!! All parents know what I am saying. In the back of my mind, I knew those feeling made me vulnerable to incomparable pain should something happen to Sean (or Danielle). But how could it? Like every parent, I took every care and precaution I could!!!

I still cannot believe that this happened to my funny, articulate, personable boy - who made us smile and laugh so much?!!! Last week a family found their 18 year old autistic son who went missing in Los Angleles - 20 days after he went missing. He was dehydrated and hurt, but ALIVE. WHY could WE not locate Sean when he needed us??!! How do we live with this guilt?

... I recently spoke to a cafe owner in Eugene OR who claimed to have seen someone resembling Sean. He did recall braces....& claims to have seen "Sean" late spring/early summer. On the other hand he says there are SO many street youth and MANY missing persons fliers in Eugene. I hope that he calls me if he sees "Sean" again.

THANK YOU to all those continuing to POST Sean's fliers. PLEASE send PICTURES & location so that we can POST. It is good to know where the fliers are. Claude saw a black & white flier in Berkeley yesterday - Please send PM or email lynnkching@yahoo.com with your ADDRESS to have fliers MAILED TO YOU anywhere in the U.S....I still have BOXES & BOXES of Sean's fliers.

See www.seansidi.com or www.facebook.com/findseansidi for more information on the search for critically injured Sean Sidi, age 19 (time of missing), missing from San Francisco, CA since May 21, 2013.

Sean may not know his name and may be disoriented due to a traumatic brain injury suffered shortly before going missing. He is in URGENT need of medical care.

Picture of Sean (far right) with good friends Paul and Nobuo. It was good to see Paul and Nobuo this summer!!! They along with Sean's many other friends (& their parents) - filled our house with laughter and precious memories for so many years. Sleepovers, birthday parties, soccer matches, parent parties...the memories are endless!!!

Search for Sean SIDI alive in OREGON July 2014

FROM Portland OR ------------

Michal and husband Jan REPORTED that the search for SEAN SIDI is very much alive in Portland OREGON. This week, they stopped at the POLICE STATION and the UNION GOSPEL MISSION IN CHINATOWN (Portland, OR) to post Sean’s flier, but to their surprise, Sean’s FLIER was already UP!!! (THANKS to some of YOU!!!) 

Michal wrote, "In BOTH places, Sean's flier was IMMEDIATELY recognized." THANK YOU Michal, & JAN FOR posting SEAN’S FLIER in Whole Foods, Starbucks and other areas in Portland!! 

FROM Eugene OR -----------------

Below are pictures of Lily, who together with her mom, posted Sean’s flier at U of Oregon, & businesses in Eugene. They also handed them to the pubic, updated the flier at the Sheriff’s office and providing Sean’s flier to organizations in Eugene providing services to the homeless. Lily and her mom spoke to many people – and 3 people claimed to have recognized Sean. I will be following up with 1 person (who had a phone) tomorrow. Lily obtained helpful information from those working at Eugene Mission regarding places providing medical care and dining services (not always easy to locate on the internet) to the homeless. I will follow up and report back. 

Thank you LILY and Lily’s mom for HELPING us KEEP THE SEARCH for Sean ALIVE. IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT Sean’s chances of being located are much increased with “boots on the ground”!!

STORY OF HOPE FOR SEAN SIDI SUPPORTERS

 

MISSING man from Connecticut, FOUND six years later in NEW YORK – BY COMPASSIONATE POLICE

This is such a HEARTWARMING story and a tribute to this police officer's humanity! We know with certainly that SEAN, like the homeless man in this story, is unable to seek help for himself and unable to find us on his own. INSTEAD, SEAN needs US to FIND HIM!!

http://danspapers.com/2014/07/southampton-police-find-man-missing-for-six-years-euripede-cruz/


Please help us keep the search for Sean (Sidi) alive by helping us to post his fliers, and by sharing Sean's story with all those you meet (including POLICE officers).

Next: Report from OREGON re: search for Sean!

Search for Sean SIDI TOOTHBRUSH DISTRIBUTION

This weekend was incredibly painful.

I spent it moving every item in Sean's room so that we could re-floor the area. It was so painful being near Sean's treasured knick knacks, with all the memories of his contagious smile and infectious laugh...

14 months into this, I still struggle to make it through each day, and even harder - each night. I think if not for all of you who make me realize that we do not search for Sea...n alone, and for Sean's sister Danielle, I would have gone insane with grief a long time ago.

As difficult as it is, I cannot imagine having a missing child without the reach of social media. SOCIAL MEDIA is playing an incredible part in locating missing persons. I will post some news articles later. Sean and Claude (Sean's dad) had many conversations about how social media would impact the future. Sean believed social media was here to STAY, impacting business and many other aspects of life. Claude thought social media was a passing thing. It appears that SEAN was right. Shortly before he went missing, Sean devoted almost all of his savings to purchasing FACEBOOK shares. Those shares have appreciated in value. I wish I could tell Sean that he was right......

For those who are interested in helping us keep the search for SEAN ALIVE, we will BE DISTRIBUTING "SEARCH for SEAN TOOTHBRUSHES" - engraved with 'seansidi.com 415.713.5913' - to the homeless and/or STREET YOUTH. These are the same toothbrushes Claude distributed at the Rainbow Family gathering in Utah.

If you would like to help in this distribution effort and/or if you would like Sean's fliers mailed to you, please email lynnkching@yahoo.com with your mailing address, to have supplies mailed to you.

Thank you all for your support,

Lynn, Claude and Danielle SIDI

Pictures & Comments at 2014 Rainbow Family Gathering in Utah re: Search for Sean SIDI

Last week, Claude (Sean’s dad), and friends Randy & Steve attended the July 2014 Rainbow Family gathering in Utah, to spread the word about the SEARCH FOR SEAN (SIDI). They TALKED TO MANY PEOPLE & DISTRIBUTED Sean’s fliers, and "Sean TOOTHBRUSHES" engraved with “seansidi.com 415.713.5913”.

SOME remembered Claude’s search of Sean in Montana, LAST YEAR at THE July 2013 RAINBOW gathering in Montana.

MANY said that they had seen Sean’s FLIERS at REST STOPS along the drive from California to UTAH (thanks to many of YOU POSTING SEAN’S FLIERS!!).

One young man insisted he saw Sean in Boulder, COLORADO. Coincidentally, Sean was enrolled at U of Colorado at Boulder before his accident. Please SHARE SEAN’S FLIER with those YOU KNOW in Boulder, Colorado!

ALL those whom Claude met at the Rainbow Family gathering WARMLY SUPPORTED Claude’s SEARCH FOR SEAN, and said they would keep an eye open for him.

BELOW ARE PICTURES FROM THE 2014 Rainbow Family Gathering. CLAUDE (Sean’s DAD) is in a WHITE T-SHIRT & COWBOY HAT. Note that MANY in the photos are holding their “seansidi.com 415.713.5913” TOOTHBRUSHES,

Search for Sean SIDI at July 2014 Rainbow Family Gathering in UTAH

It is a 2.5 hr drive (from Salt Lake City) and a 1 hr hike IN– to reach people at the Rainbow gathering.    Yesterday, members of the ‘Search for Sean’ group met with law enforcement, medics and those at the Rainbow Gathering in Utah.    The group distributed Sean’s fliers and "Help Find Sean Sidi - 415.713.5913"  TOOTHBRUSHES.   They were well received by the Rainbow Family.  Thus far, no one claims to have seen Sean.   The search continues today. 

 

It has now always been 14 months since Sean vanished.  We have not received any new tips.  It is hard not to despair. We live each day as best as we can, waiting for news of Sean, found alive - or not.  The wait is unbearable.

 

 

We are grateful to all of you who continue to help us spread the word about our search for Sean, by sharing, posting, distributing Sean Flier T-shirts. 

 

 

Below is a PHOTO of Nikita.   Nikita's sister Lara went to high school with Sean.  Lara and Nikita have managed to get Sean's fliers in storefront windows and have posted in San Francisco.  Thank you Lara & Nikita and to so many of you helping to keep the flames of HOPE alive.  PHOTO of Sean (far right) and good friends.
