Finding a missing person with a private investigator

Assistance from a Private Investigator

If you are worried sick about a loved one who has gone missing for a period of time, it may be time to hire a private investigator to assist with the case.

Private investigators (otherwise known as PIs) can assist in finding missing people around the UK as well as globally. By hiring a PI, you can have the peace of mind that your loved one is in the best hands. Over 800,000 people go missing each year, and intervention from the authorities is required with many specific cases.

When do I contact a Private Investigator

Although it may be intuitive to make a call to a private investigator as soon as your loved one goes missing, it may be worth waiting for a short amount of time before you do so. Victims may turn up unannounced or those close to them may be able to solve the case themselves. If a couple of days have passed and you are looking for intervention, we suggest you look into private investigation. Private investigators deliver the element of care and expert knowledge which is of high benefit.

How does a private investigator locate a missing person?

Physical searching: One of the most obvious ways in which private investigators hunt for missing people is by searching physically for the person in question. By piecing together useful information, they may drive around a number of locations which could link to the finding.

Using videotape: Private investigators can use any CCTV and video footage as a way of tracking down the missing person. Footage is concrete evidence that the victim has been in a certain place at a certain time and may make the search easier to follow up.

Using other detective techniques: Other techniques to find the missing person in a timely manner may include hiring others to question suspects who may be involved with the disappearance, as well as a variety of background checks to come to conclusions about the whereabouts of the victim in question.

How a Private Investigator can help you trace a missing person

When a loved one goes missing, the emptiness and despair can quickly set in, especially when there appears to be no leads. However, here at Private Investigations UK we have resources and tools that can help you find that missing person. From a different perspective, some people that go missing, disappear to avoid repaying debts, or because they are suspected of a crime. Although these two scenarios are extremely different, we have the skills and experience to solve both domestic and commercial missing person mysteries, and discover the truth for our clients.

The internet

Of course, the first place to begin any investigation is the internet, and you have probably attempted this method yourself on more than one occasion. However, for everything the internet can achieve, it’s not the most reliable tool to help you find a missing person. In fact, the information you can glean about a person’s whereabouts from an internet search is usually outdated.

Databases

Here at Private Investigations UK we have access to literally thousands of pieces of information, in the form of databases, at our disposal. We can search through

  • business and corporation records including executives and former executives, as well as director information
  • voter registration and electoral information
  • homeowner and mortgage details
  • public records
  • vehicle registration details including boats and aircrafts
  • legal name change information

Legal aspects

When searching for a missing person there are some legal barriers that do arise, namely the Data Protection Act and Privacy Laws. These laws and regulations are there to protect the public and keep their data secure, and so they can extend the time it takes to track down a missing person, but at Private Investigations UK we always work within the law, and we have a great record of accomplishment doing so.

In summary

Tracking a missing person is almost impossible without a private investigator with access to public databases and records, especially when you take into consideration the laws that need to be navigated. Here at Private Investigations UK we have an incredibly high record when it comes to finding missing persons, why not contact us today?
