Luckily, instead of putting Chu's bereaved father improbably dealing with yet another kidnapping or something, the sequel will instead, according to Deadline:

Searching 2‘s plot is still under wraps, but it will feature a new set of characters and an evolved Screenlife thriller format where the story plays out on the screens of the characters’ devices.

Meanwhile, here's the synopsis for the original film:

David Kim becomes desperate when his 16-year-old daughter, Margot, disappears and an immediate police investigation leads nowhere. He soon decides to search the one place that no one else has: Margot's laptop.
