Friends still searching for answers in Sean Baek's disappearance
From the article (February 18):
"We were kind of each other's only diabetic friends," Koppenhaver said. "We called each other our diabesties."
Sean Baek's parents hold out hope for safe return
Quick post regarding my quote from Sean's father:
They misquoted him in the text in the article. In the video, he says "...to have him right there and NOT respond to our messages was really disturbing"
The area around there is not too great, in fact it's a pretty bad area. I hope he did not go looking for drugs. They should put up his picture/poster in that area. I hope he is allright.
It concerns me that he said "I'm sorry". Was he so out of it he was going to throw himself in the river?! I remember Art Linkletter's daughter jumped to her death from a high-rise after taking LSD.
I think there have been some sort of posters put up. I’m just shocked that MPD and UWM haven’t searched the river - it’s been warm enough to do that this week.

Search for missing UWM student continues
... Police have conducted an exhaustive search, both physical and electronic, on campus and in the community.
... The UWM Police Department continues to search, following up on leads with assistance from the Milwaukee Police Department.
Since Sean’s disappearance, UWM police have had ongoing contact with his family, keeping them informed of the investigation. ...
They haven't searched the river yet! Whoa..
There was a mass shooting at Molson Coors earlier this week that kind of put a damper on a lot of resources in the city. It was mentioned in the last presser with UWM that it was too cold to do an exhaustive dive search last week.
BBM Yes, there have. There was a man interviewed at the tattoo shop across the street who was seen putting up a flyer in his window.
They searched along the river beginning the night he was reported missing but they have to know where to put in a dive team. MOO
Police: Missing UW-Milwaukee student disappeared after taking LSD with friend
Officers have searched near the river where Baek is believed to have gone missing, but won’t call out a dive team until there’s a more specific location.
Well how do they find a "specific location"?
Damn it. I am honestly scared his poor family will have to wait until his body is spotted on a bank or something.
Right. All they know is that he ran toward the riverbank. And then you have to take into account the weather, how fast the river is flowing, how high it is, etc.
If they organize any searches for Sean on days I have off, I will probably drive to Milwaukee to help.
I’m local and know one of the RA’s in his building. I haven’t heard anything about searches being organized as of right now, but if I hear of something I will for sure post about it.
Rooting for this young man.
It's going to be 50 tomorrow in Milwaukee. Surely that's warm enough for a dive team. Rest of the week 40's and next weekend high 50's!!!
This is a great photo of his face in case anyone remembers seeing him. If he ran to the riverbank immediately, surely his scent would have been detected thus giving a location to begin a water based search. Maybe not divers at first but boat patrols along the river where a body could get snagged as it went along.
Did they search the river?
Thank you so much! I would really appreciate that.
