Missing Person Investigations

What are Missing Persons Investigations

Missing person investigations are simply the best way to find out the truth about anyone you cannot find.

One of the big problems with police-led missing person searches is simply that the term missing persons is so narrow. Police will only begin looking for a missing child after a specific amount of time has passed, after the child was last seen and by that time, it may be too late if the child has been kidnapped by a paedophile or child killer. Police are also reluctant, due to thinning resources, to search for people who are missing.

Even in a police-led missing person search, police will stop looking after a certain amount of time and will declare the case a cold case.

Police do their best with the resources they have, but law enforcement simply is not equipped to deal with all the crime in our society.

Anyone who wants real answers and fast actions needs to speak to a private investigator. A professional investigator will start looking for someone as soon as you feel uneasy and will continue to search as long as you are still looking for answers.

Who hires investigators to find missing persons?

The answer to that is just about everyone. You can launch a missing person investigation to find:

  • Missing loved ones or family members who have voluntarily disappeared or run away.
  • Missing persons who have not returned home from school, work or social activities
  • Fugitives you need to find.
  • Debtors for debt and money owned.
  • Missing persons who have been gone a long time and are part of a cold case.
  • Runaways and minors who have been kidnapped.

Basically, if you are worried about someone’s whereabouts and wish to locate someone who is not easy to find, a qualified missing person investigator will be able to use advanced techniques to help find the person you are looking for.

How does a missing person investigator locate a missing person?

Professional investigators use a number of techniques to find missing persons:

  • Fugitive recovery agents. These investigators are experts at locating fleeing criminals and debtors. 
  • Physical searches, on foot, mobile, rural and city infiltration as mostly needed immediately.
  • Private investigators use a number of vehicles to search areas the average person has no access to.
  • Networking with other private investigators / security companies / armed response and neighbourhood networks are of assistance.
  • Private investigators often have extensive networks of people they can recruit to help them in a search.
  • Surveillance – Investigators can observe places where a missing person is likely to be or can observe and track a suspect in a missing person case.
  • Searching hospitals and mortuaries. Private investigators can search through a number of facilities where a victim could be as a final attempt and if death is suspected.
  • Doing background checks, questioning witnesses, and following the trail of the person’s last movements are crucial.
