How to Find a Missing Person Using Private Investigators?

When it comes to locating a missing person, each case is unique. You may have recently lost contact with the person you’re looking for or perhaps you’ve never actually met the subject of the investigation. You may have comprehensive personal details to help in the search or perhaps you only have a name, phone number, or old address. Moreover, the person sought may be in the next suburb or an entirely different country.

Investigators find most missing persons by conducting detailed searches on databases or by making associated discreet inquiries. Often, creative thinking is required – it’s not what databases searched but rather how they search that gets results. The investigation must tailor to suit the circumstances. Also, every shred of evidence can be important in getting a positive outcome.

Missing Person Investigation: Case Study

  1. The subject of the investigation was deliberately avoiding detection as she knew people were seeking to locate her. She made sure her name did not come upon any databases. We examined historical records in the hope they would give us clues.
  2. We noticed that a male appeared on a database at an address where the female subject is formerly known to be a resident. He may have been co-resident with the subject or perhaps they lived there at different times. Other searches revealed the male had previously lived over the road from the subject at other addresses miles away.
  3. We drew the inference that the subject and the male had become friends or, more likely, partners at the older location when they lived near one another. It would have been too great a coincidence had they separately decided to move into the same residence subsequently.
  4. We then conducted searches to endeavor to locate the male and uncovered a listing for him in another state. Fieldwork at the address enabled us to confirm the subject female resided there and our client was successfully able to serve her with legal documents.


Why choose private investigators for missing persons?

Each year, over 800,000 people are officially reported missing according to the FBI’s National Crime Information Center. Of this number, around 80-90% is minors. Locating a missing person is an extremely time-sensitive matter, and the police generally work under limitations that prevent them from being as effective as they could be. Private investigators can be much more effective in locating a missing person.

Police only begin looking for a missing person after a certain amount of time has passed; by that time, it can be far too late if the person abducted or otherwise harmed. Police also don’t spring to action right away to search for people who may have left their homes voluntarily or who live on the streets. Additionally, police stop looking for a person after a certain amount of time, and the case declared as closed.  So resources can be devoted to other cases. Private investigators not bound by these restrictions. A private investigator begins looking for a missing person as soon as they notify the person’s disappearance. They can also continue trying to locate the person as long as you’re still seeking information.
