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

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

Keep Hope Alive - A Personal Message to Family & Friends

Save the Date!! – SATURDAY, September 14, 2013 at 2 pm (San Francisco, location TBD)
Dear Family and Friends,
It has been almost 3 months since Sean vanished without a trace.  There are no words to describe the ache, agony and devastation that we feel each and every minute of the day.   We cannot envision a time without our sweet, smiling Sean - who brought so much joy and laughter into our lives.  The best friend of his sister, Danielle…the boy who is … so funny and outgoing – you felt like you had known him forever.
There are days where feelings of utter hopelessness threaten to consume us.  We try and remember the words of Kym Pasqualini, the Founder of ‘National Center for Missing Adults’, whose wisdom comes from 20 years of working with missing persons. Kym’s words of HOPE are:  
 “ … we solved hundreds of cases including missing person cases, unsolved homicides, and unidentified by someone seeing a post on the Internet (or flier) and calling in a lead.  It comes down to this.   Locating missing persons and solving crimes depends upon not only law enforcement but the cooperative efforts of law enforcement, advocating agencies, the media and most importantly the public.   
Feeling utterly discouraged is normal, questioning the effectiveness of efforts important but all too often missing persons fall through the cracks because people don't know they are missing…..”
On Saturday, September 14, 2013, we will hold a JOINT AWARENESS VIGIL to help spread the word about the search for Sean and 2 other missing boys from San Francisco:  Jackson Miller and Crishtian Hughes.    
Your attendance will GREATLY help ensure that Sean, Crishtian and Jackson DO NOT FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS.
