Help find Sean Sidi

We need your help to find our son


On recommendation of NCMEC,**we will be expanding the search for Sean to HAWAII and providing all law enforcement, hospitals, shelters, soup kitchens, and homeless outreach advocates in HAWAII with Sean’s flier and a letter from Dr. Manley stating that Sean is at risk of DEATH. For those of you in Hawaii who would like to assist in the HAWAII search please contact Lynn’s sister, Lianne, at   
Yesterday, Lynn, Sean’s mom met with ‘Project Alert’ (an arm of NCMEC whose members have law enforcement background), of the NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING AND EXPLOITED CHILDREN (“NCMEC”)**, to discuss Sean’s case.
One of the recommendations of NCMEC/Project Alert is that the search for Sean be expanded to Hawaii.  There are many stories of homeless people, including those who may have no inkling of who or where they are, being given one-way tickets by various cities to other locations (including Hawaii).  Since Sean has family in Hawaii and is possibly not cognizant of who or where he is, NCMEC recommends that we expand the search to Hawaii (while continuing our search in California and the rest of the U.S in FULL FORCE).  MORE UPDATES TO COME.
THANK YOU to NCMEC, and to Dave and Don, of Project Alert, for assisting in the search for Sean!!  
** NCMEC works in partnership with the U.S. Department of Justice to help law enforcement find missing children (0-21 yrs are eligible), receives federal funding, and is authorized under federal statute to assist with the recovery of missing children. NCMEC has recovered 180,000 children since it was established in 1984. IN SHORT, NCMEC IS A POWERFUL & VALUABLE RESOURCE IF YOU HAVE A MISSING CHILD.  For more information, see

As some of you know, our son, Sean (age 19) survived a horrendous accident, several months before he went missing without a trace from San Francisco, CA on May 21, 2013. In this accident, Sean completely shattered his skull, suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, and fractured many bones throughout his face and body.   Sean was in a coma for a week, and it was unknown whether he would live.   Thanks to the extraordinary skill of the neurosurgeons at SF General, the resilience of youth, AND LUCK - Sean survived – WITH the potential for a meaningful and normal life.
Sean’s survival WAS a MIRACLE.  
While Sean was making good progress at the time he went missing on May 21, 2013, he was still in the very early stages of recovery.   Doctors have warned that due to his medical condition, Sean is at SIGNIFICANT RISK of death as a missing person, if we do not find him “soon”.    We do not know whether “soon” has come and gone.  We do know that Sean is still missing, and that our search for Sean will continue for as long as it takes to find him. 
HELP MAKE US FIND SEAN IN TIME  (THE SECOND MIRACLE) by SHARING Sean’s FLIER with everyone you know in the United States, and keeping an eye out for SEAN.  Due to his recent head injury, and risk of related complications (memory loss, etc.)  Sean could be far from San Francisco (if he was given a ride), and not know who or where he is.  
For more information on our desperate search for Sean who vanished from San Francisco, CA on May 21, 2013 without a trace, see   Sean is 19 yrs old, 5’5” and 120 lbs. He is of Asian/Caucasian ethnicity, has dark brown wavy hair, WEARS SILVER DENTAL BRACES, has dimples, right eye droops slightly, has scar/bump on right forehead from brain surgery.  Sean could have been given a ride very far from San Francisco.  Please take Sean to the hospital and call his parents at 415.713.5913 if you see Sean.

October 21, 2013 marks 5 months since Sean vanished without a trace. There has been on activity on Sean’s bank card or cell phone since he vanished on May 21, 2013 from San Francisco, CA without a trace. 

We are mindful that each day may make the difference between life and death for Sean, given his precarious medical condition at the time he went missing. For us, the days only get harder – much, much harder. We are thankful to all of you, and to our friends, family and co-workers who have provided on-going support and encouragement during this difficult time. We do not know when this nightmare will end, and we pray for the sanity and strength to continue the search for Sean for as long as it takes. 

We DO know with certainty that Sean will only be found if people know that he is missing. Spreading the word has not been easy, and gets harder with time. We desperately need help keeping Sean’s fliers posted in San Francisco AND all over California and the United States. 

If you would like to help in the search for Sean, we are asking that you pick ONE LOCATION on your weekly route (church, walking to the bus stop, etc.) and KEEP SEAN’S FLIER POSTED in that ONE LOCATION until SEAN IS FOUND. We do not know how long this will take.....

We DO KNOW that it will take a “village” to find Sean. 

Your POSTING 1 FLIER, and keeping that 1 FLIER UP, can make all the difference in the search for Sean.

We will gladly mail you a supply of Sean’s fliers. Please email lynnkching@yahoo.comwith your mailing address for fliers. For those in wet locations, we will mail fliers and waterproof covers, as requested.

With Gratitude,

Lynn and Claude
