Sean SIDI update September 15, 2014

Thank you to so many who emailed and messaged US with your prayers.

We will post with updated information when received. I’m not sure how long the ID process will take - several weeks to several months - depending. There are many missing persons nationwide and many homeless living in Golden Gate Park…..the remains located on Sept 9th IN GG PARK could be anyone.

It has been a very long 16 months since Sean vanished – with NO promise of an “end” regardless of the ID outcome. Nonetheless, we are extremely grateful FOR THE support we have received from all of YOU.

YOU played & continue to play A CRUCIAL ROLE in giving us a FIGHTING chance of locating Sean. There are TOO many to name & many more we have never met - but you each share a special place in our hearts….

We have NO guarantee of finding Sean or answers, but WITH YOUR HELP we retain some comfort in KNOWING that we continue to do as much as we can.

We PRAY that somehow – even without memory, that SEAN can sense how much he is LOVED....

A MINIMUM OF 5 families are waiting for news after human remains were found in a lake at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco....
"When a disappearance occurs, everything changes. The emotions of those who are left behind range from: sadness, guilt, hurt, anger, depression, hopelessness, apathy, rage, hysteria, to a lack of appetite and sleep. Nightmares& panic attacks.

With all of the above they must muster up the energy to search for their loved ones and somehow work. We see so many families using on social media, along with physically searching, hanging fliers, making phone calls, vigils, interviews with the media. It is truly like having two full time jobs.

Then the news, a body has been found.

“The Missing California Five” all vanished in San Francisco.

We were told the news last night that human remains were found in a small lake in Golden Gate Park. Please pray for these families right now, along for the family who we may not know as of yet. Thank you all for your continued support in helping to find these young male adults. Please Keep Sharing !"

Our search for Sean continues and we accept any offers of help.

This past week, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) featured Sean on their website.  See September 3rd post at where over 1200 people shared the post about the search for Sean.  YOU DO NOT NEED A FB account to view the post.  

Last week Captain Jason Cherniss of San Francisco Police extended a hand in the search for Sean.


A supporter of the Search for Sean told me how impressed she was with Captain Jason Cherniss, the commander of the Tenderloin Police Station in San Francisco.   Given the large  (& colorful)  HOMELESS population in the Tenderloin, she urged me to seek out Captain Cherniss’ help in searching for Sean.            


Captain  Cherniss’ REPLY to  my email INFORMING him about the search for SEAN and requesting  his  HELP in circulating  Sean’s Flier to TENDERLOIN  POLICE OFFICERS  -  is set forth BELOW…….


                              *   *   *   *   *



My family is very active in the Sunset, and we have consistently posted fliers around our neighborhood and at businesses. This week I will post your sons picture in our (Tenderloin Police Station) newsletter.     I will also have my staff send this flier out to every officer at Tenderloin.


I am so sorry for your family. I cannot imagine what you and your family must be going through. Please feel free to contact me anytime.”   


Jason Cherniss

La Boulange, Starbucks & August 26, 2014 Update re: Search for Sean SIDI

Danielle (Sean’s sister) has started her junior year in high school. I pray the year will see her drawing strength & comfort from the knowledge that we & many others will NEVER stop searching for Sean. To see her brother on the edge of death, survive against tremendous odds, then to lose him again in this way --- is a trauma no child should have to endure... I have assured Danielle many times that her dad and I will search for Sean until the END of our days. Even past this time, I am comforted with the knowledge that NCMEC & other missing person’s organizations will keep the search for Sean going.

We have printed the FIRST BATCH of Sean’s NEW FLIER. We realize that many of you have been posting Sean’s fliers for many months… However, if anyone still has “posting” energy remaining TO post even 1 NEW flier, please email with your mailing address to have a few of Sean’s NEW fliers mailed to you (anywhere in U.S.). Alternatively, you may save the flier to your computer & print it. Despite the reach of social MEDIA, the posting of hard copy fliers remain CRITICAL in the search for Sean & any missing person.

LA BOULANGE, a French bakery recently acquired by Starbucks Coffee has offered to POST Sean’s NEW FLIER in their San Francisco locations. While Starbucks will not post the flier in their windows, they will post SEAN’S NEW FLIER on 22 community boards at various Starbucks cafes in the Bay Area, IF space is available. The date of posting has not been identified, however, I HOPE that supporters of the search for Sean will provide a photo of the flier, or post a flier on a Starbucks (or other) community board if one is not already up.

Below, picture of Allyssa Zimmerman sporting her SEARCH for SEAN T-shirt – which she wore to school in Manteca!!!! Thank you Allyssa for wearing the FLIER shirt & helping us spread the word about our search for Sean!! Also pictured is the 5’x 8’ banner at Valencia St. (btwn 20 & 21st St), which JUAN & ROSA MARIA SAN MAMES has so generously displayed on their STREET FRONT property for the PAST YEAR!! Thank you Juan & Rosa Maria San Mames Family for doing this!!!! ALSO featured ARE random pictures of Sean…the LOVE of our (Danielle, Claude & Lynn’s) LIFE. As you can tell from the pictures – Sean loves being on the water!

The following press release was issued today.


                                   "FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


San Francisco Police Department, We Help the Missing, and the family of Sean Sidi is seeking the public’s assistance in locating missing person, Sean Sidi. Sean was 19 years old at the time of his disappearance and was last seen on May 21, 2013 in San Francisco, CA. Sean is approximately 5’5” tall, weighing approximately 120 pounds with brown eyes and hair. Sean has braces on his teeth and a scar on his right forehead. Sean suffered a traumatic brain injury that could affect his cognitive/mental health and is in serious need of medical attention. Sean was last seen wearing a black and gray NorthFace jacket with a hood and black Vans slip-on shoes. Sean’s last communication was located at the eastern end of Golden Gate Park. Sean speaks French fluently and his injury may cause him to revert to French only. Family members and Private Investigators feel Sean’s appearance will likely be altered or unkept, differing from the pictures. Investigators also feel Sean’s hair may appear different.

A statement from Private Investigator Jeff Kaplan: We are investigating both a criminal aspect of the case and looking at several persons of interest. We continue to investigate the aspect of a psychological break, knowing Sean may be a different persona every few days and may travel different paths based on that persona, wandering, hitchhiking, ride sharing, train hopping or holed up in homeless camps/shelter in San Francisco or any other location in the United States. We follow every lead, we request with any possible sightings that the person take a cell phone picture of the individual and submit with approximate location, description of the person and description of any persons they may be with, while we continue efforts to formulate additional leads and information.

We Help The Missing organization and law enforcement are asking for the media’s attention on Sean’s case as it is imperative to locate Sean to ensure his safe return. Please understand time is of the essence and we need your help to get this information in the eyes of the public.

A missing poster including information of Sean Sidi will accompany this release.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Sean Sidi is urged to call the San Francisco Police Department Investigator Morrow at (415) 553-1361, Private Investigator Jeff Kaplan at (925) 890-0695 or WE HELP THE MISSING-TIP LINE (866) 660-4025.
