Sean Sidi Suffers from TBI and Missing! National Call to Action Details


Sean Sidi vanished on May 21, 2013 from San Francisco, CA. The Sidi is requesting help from the public to help ensure all resources are utilized by San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) to find their son. Sean has already been missing four weeks!

Missing with Significant Medical Disability
Admitted to San Francisco General Hospital for a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) on November 12, 2012, Sean Sidi suffered multiple skull fractures, subdural and epidural hematomas, and a frontal contusion. Sean underwent immediate brain surgery to save his life.

TBI can cause wide-ranging physical and psychological effects that can appear even months after the injury to include loss of consciousness, profound confusion, dizziness and loss of balance, convulsions, and seizures, to memory and concentration problems.

Sean’s surgeon Dr. Geoffrey Manley is Professor and Vice-Chair of Neurological Surgery at UCSF and Chief of Neurosurgery at San Francisco General Hospital. Dr. Manley issued a letter on June 18, 2013 with a powerful message of urgency. “Sean Sidi is still recovering from his brain injury. This puts Sean at SIGNIFICANT RISK as a missing person.” Dr. Manley goes on to state, I am fearful that in his current state he is in danger of not making a meaningful recovery or death if he is not found quickly.”

The urgency to find Sean cannot be overstated and you can help! See how you can help below.


The Sidi family is requesting the following from San Francisco Police Department:

1. SFPD TO COMPLETE SEAN’S ENTRY IN THE FBI NATIONAL CRIME INFORMATION CENTER (NCIC) BY ELEVATING HIS STATUS FROM THE “OTHER” CATEGORY TO THE “DISABLED” CATEGORY, AND ADD ALL MEDICAL DESCRIPTORS SUCH AS SURGICAL SCARS AND FRACTURES.
