By the time people turn to a private investigator, they have usually exhausted every option available to them. The police have a very specific definition of a missing person and are often unable to help. If you have reached this stage, it is likely that you feel tired, frustrated, and are on the brink of giving up your search.
Some people will prefer us to commence the trace investigation from the start, if they have little information to go on, or are not in a position to undertake simple internet research.
Ideally we would like as much information as you can give at the start of our investigation, including their full name, date of birth, last known address, any family members or works address, or any information you feel is relevant. This gives us the best chance to find the subject quickly. However, if the information you have is more limited than that, we will still do our best to help. We have traced people with the smallest of information with productive results in a matter of minutes to hours.
Skip-tracing services involve using a variety of information resources to locate people who don’t want to be found, or to find people who have a stake or a role in a legal proceeding such as a lawsuit or an estate settlement. Clients use skip tracing to find current addresses, telephone numbers, identification numbers, workplaces and more. All information recovered by the skip tracer is analyzed, verified, and used to determine the location of the individual. Skip tracing may involve gathering and analysing a great deal of information or very little information, both of which have their own set of advantages and disadvantages.
Although most skip tracers now head to the Internet to gather information on the whereabouts of individuals, many also employ social engineering, the art of calling on individuals who may have information about the subject.
It is the job of the skip tracer to use any number of resources and databases to collect the required information. As such, skip tracing often involves accessing some of the following:
- Phone number databases
- Credit reports
- Credit card applications
- Job applications
- Criminal background checks
- Loan applications
- Utility bills
- Public tax information
- Public records databases
- Courthouse records
- Department store loyalty cards
- Air travel records
